Trustees – Treasurer & Vice Chair
Manchester Mind believes that everyone deserves to be supported in their mental health needs and we have a part to play in that. Our work is guided by our values of:
Openness | Belonging | Strength | Collaboration
As a charity we are focussed on the needs of the people who use our services and are committed to being able to increase access to services, ensure they are relevant and properly funded. We also have a strong commitment to our staff and volunteers who play such an important role in the provision of our high quality and person-centred services.
To support us in this work, Manchester Mind are recruiting 2 new Trustees, specifically:
- A Treasurer
- A Vice Chair
Trustees are a vital and valued part of Manchester Mind and are important in overseeing the charity, ensuring we act legally and ethically and use our finances to benefit others. We also need to ensure we deliver on our strategic and business plans, achieve financial sustainability and manage the organisation’s performance.
As a Trustee you would be expected to attend Board meetings quarterly and take part in one of our four Sub-Committees, which meet every two/three months (as Treasurer this would involve chairing the Finance Sub-Committee).
For the Treasurer position we are looking for someone with:
- A financial qualification and/or at least two years’ experience in a senior financial position.
- Skills in preparing and presenting budget information and forecasts.
- Awareness of charity finance.
For the Vice Chair position we are looking for someone with:
- Experience in a strategic role.
- Experience of chairing meetings.
- Awareness of charity governance.
And for both roles – the ability to work in a collaborative way in order to generously share skills and talents.
