Trustee and Chair of the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee

Trustee and Chair of the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee

We’re recruiting a new trustee who will bring financial expertise and become Chair of our Finance, Audit and Risk Committee.

About the role

Trustees play an active role in strategic planning, scrutiny, questioning the impact of our work and holding the programmes to account and, where necessary, acting as a critical but supportive friend. They are also responsible for the legal, financial and compliance duties of a Board.

About the new Trustee

LEF is an interesting and rewarding organisation to be part of, and this is a key moment for someone who enjoys finance and strategic thinking to join us. Your financial expertise could come from a wide range of backgrounds and roles: you may be a senior finance person in the not-for-profit sector, or you may have a private or legal sector career in finance and have some understanding of the charity sector. You are also likely to be a qualified accountant but if not, you will need an equivalent amount of knowledge and experience of charity accounting. You’ll also need to bring passion and commitment to our mission, purposes and aims, and willingness to devote the necessary time and effort.

Previous trustee experience is not essential.

If you need help accessing the application materials, please contact Allyson Davies or Belinda Berry.

We value, welcome and respect all the differences that make us who we are, including: age, cultural background, disability and mental health, ethnicity and race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, neurodiversity and socioeconomic background.

How to express your interest

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact Allyson Davies via the info in the Trustee information pack, which also contains more information about the LEF and the requirements of the role, and how to apply. The deadline is 10am on Monday 15 April.
