Trustee: Treasurer

Closing Date:

World Jewish Relief is seeking an enthusiastic, analytical and committed Treasurer to join the Council. 

The role of the Treasurer is to monitor the financial administration of the charity and report to the Council at regular intervals on its state of financial health, in line with best practice, and in compliance with the governing document and legal requirements.

Our ideal candidate should be able to demonstrate a track record of strategic finance, a CCAB Accounting qualification and an understanding of the Statement of Recommended Accounting Practice (SORP) for charities. You would be familiar with the responsibilities of charity governance and risk management and have held a senior accounting/finance position in an organisation of a comparable size. Experience of treasury and investment management, IT and organisational resources would also be desirable.

There are four Council meetings a year with one away day on a Sunday. The Treasurer will chair the Finance Committee that also meets four times a year and in addition attend four Investment and Allocation Committee meetings per year. It is hoped that Council members will occasionally make field visits overseas to our projects and engage on a regular basis with key staff members on specific issues related to their portfolio. Council and committee meetings are usually from 17:30 onwards, though some are early morning from 08:30 onwards. Many meetings take place either at World Jewish Relief’s offices or in central London.

This is an unremunerated role though reasonable expenses will be reimbursed if required.

All applicants must be committed to the aims, ethos and values of World Jewish Relief. We welcome applicants from all faiths or none.
