Could you be the new Gardens Trust Treasurer?

Spring daffodils in bloom with yellow petals and orange trumpets.

The Gardens Trust is looking for a new Trustee for the role of GT Treasurer who will take over when our current Treasurer steps down from the Board.  The Treasurer will work closely with the Chair and other Trustees to oversee the financial management of the charity and advise on strategic matters during a period of exciting change and development.

This is an important and rewarding role, facilitating the Gardens Trust’s work conserving and sharing historic designed landscapes. We are ambitious for our organisation and its work, and are looking for a Treasurer who will relish that challenge too.

Who are we looking for?

The ideal candidate will have knowledge of charity financial procedures and the reporting requirements of the Charity Commission, SORP and Companies House. You need to be good at numbers, with financial experience, but not necessarily an accountant!

A desire to support a small established organisation and a willingness to learn and adapt skills to our needs are the most important qualities we are looking for. We are a friendly, enthusiastic, and hardworking team of volunteers, Board, Committee members and staff, and we’re looking for a Treasurer who is excited to share a common goal.

What is the commitment?

The appointment is for an initial term of three years, renewable once to a maximum of six years.

The Board of the Gardens Trust meets four times a year during the day in March, June, September and December. Most Board meetings are held by Zoom.

The Treasurer will also be a member of the Management Committee and take on specific projects as required. The time commitment is estimated to be approximately two days per month.
