Jobs/Volunteering

Current Volunteering Opportunities:

Volunteer Treasurer

FVRCC was established in 2015/16 as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). We provide free and confidential information, advocacy and support across the Forth Valley region to anyone aged over 13 affected by any form of sexual violence. We are led by a voluntary Board of Directors, all of whom are women either living or working in the area. The centre currently employs 11 paid members of staff and is supported by a growing team of volunteers and sessional workers.You can find out more at our website:https://www.forthvalleyrapecrisis.org.uk.

Role Description

Whilst it’s important that all trustees collectively play their part in financial monitoring and decision making, the role of the Treasurer is to take the lead in advising the Board on all financial aspects of the organisation. The Treasurer will also be a Board member. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Ensuring that adequate financial and audit controls are in place and that these are subject to regular review
  • Assuming accountability for the organisation’s financial affairs which includes preparing and publishing accounts in the appropriate form
  • Promoting the financial viability and long term sustainability of the organisation
  • Being a counter signatory on major banking transactions

 

Our ideal candidate would have a good understanding of financial administration, the ability to analyse and interpret financial data quickly and accurately and also have demonstrable experience of what strong governance looks like. Third sector experience is not essential and whilst helpful, the willingness to learn and actively contribute to the Board is far more important.

 

Estimated time commitment

The current time commitment of the Treasurer is approximately 10 hours per quarter which includes preparation for, and attendance at, a quarterly Board meeting and a Finance Sub-committee meeting in addition to ad hoc issues arising. Meetings currently take place at our centre in Stirling. The position is voluntary but reasonable expenses will be paid.

What can FVRCC offer in return ?

FVRCC is still a young centre and we have big plans so this is a great opportunity to get involved and help shape our future.

How to apply

Applications should take the form of a CV and a short supporting statement outlining what you would bring to the role and your interest in it. These should be sent to Rachel Maitland, the Chair to the Board at chair.fvrcc@gmail.com by 12 noon on Friday 10th January 2020.
