We are looking for a suitably qualified and experienced finance professional to join the VocalEyes board of Trustees in the role of Treasurer.
The overall role of the Treasurer is to maintain an overview of VocalEyes affairs, ensuring our financial viability and ensuring that proper financial records and procedures are maintained. You will also ensure VocalEyes is accountable to its beneficiaries, to the Charity Commission and the public in general.
Trustees have the ultimate responsibility for running the charity, for its finances and the employment of staff, and our trustees are involved in shaping the strategic future of VocalEyes and its work, advising and developing staff, and making policy decisions. Being a trustee is immensely rewarding, providing opportunities for personal development; and whilst you bring your skills and energy to the role, in return you will gain new experience, contacts and knowledge.
Effective trustee boards need a range of people with a good mix of skills. The best boards are also diverse, with people who have a real understanding of the needs to be met and others with good financial, business and management experience. Half of our current board are blind or partially sighted, and as we aim to maintain or exceed that ratio, we are particularly interested in hearing from people with experience of sight loss.
