Treasurer (Voluntary Role)

This is an excellent opportunity to be involved in a successful and forward-thinking charity that helps improve the lives of many people in London Borough of Richmond.

Every year Richmond Borough Mind supports a growing number of residents with a range of mental health needs, reaching around 6000 people in 2016/17. Services include Psychotherapy and Counselling, the Richmond Wellbeing Service, our Wellbeing Centre, our Carers in Mind project, Mindkit for young people in schools and colleges, Money Advice and various Peer led art and therapeutic groups.

Through our various services, staff and many volunteers we provide high quality, individually tailored services so people can live full lives and be connected to other people in their communities. We work with others – from small local community groups to the Mental Health Trusts – to minimise the impact of mental health problems and in partnership we aim to improve people’s experience of mental health services. In collaboration with local and national organisations, we raise awareness locally of the importance of mental health and recovery and tackle the discrimination faced by people who experience mental health problems.  

Our turnover is around 900,000 and we have 34 employees and over 140 volunteers. Funding comes from a range of statutory bodies, trusts and foundations and community fundraising. We have a dedicated fundraiser and the senior team are actively involved in business development.

We are now looking to recruit a new trustee to join our Board as Treasurer to support the Board, with the oversight of the charity’s finance. You would be part of a dynamic board with a diverse range of skills and experience. We are ideally looking for a qualified finance professional, with experience of the not for profit sector (this can be learned), and with an interest in mental health.

As a trustee and director your strategic financial skills will help this dynamic social care charity sustain growth and excellence. You will work closely with the Finance Manager and Chief Executive, and attend approximately 12 Finance Committee and Full Board meetings each year. You would also need to spend a little less than one day bi-monthly, once you have mastered the brief, comparing actual performance to budget. In addition you would spend 1 or 2 days prior to the financial year end working with the Finance Manager and Chief Executive ensuring appropriate information is passed to the auditors for the end-of year accounts.
