Role details

This is an exciting opportunity to join the Committee of Family Nursing and Home Care (FNHC) for the role of Treasurer.

Experience of working with a Charity is desirable but not essential. We do not have complex accounts, but we do have multiple income streams.

The commitment for the role is approximately 4 hours per month, but this may vary between 2 and 8 hours, dependent on workload at the time. As part of the hours, the Treasurer will need to attend most of the Committee meetings (usually around 5-6 meetings per year – mostly held in the late afternoon / early evening), to keep up to date with current developments and update the committee on financial matters. Accordingly, this role requires dedicated time and effort to prepare for meetings in a timely manner.
