Headway Nottingham exists to improve the lives of those people in Nottinghamshire who are living with complex disabilities after brain injury. 

We are well established and respected in our area, having provided support, social and cognitive rehabilitation and friendship opportunities for the Nottingham brain injury community since 1996.

We're looking for a special someone to join our friendly and professional Board of Trustees in the role of Treasurer. If you're working in the financial/accountancy sector and have a few hours each month to share your talent and passion for number crunching, we'd love to hear from you.

Experience or understanding of the issues surrounding brain injury and/or the charitable sector are an advantage, however are not prerequisites as our knowledgeable team will support your learning. Although the Treasurer role is unpaid, we're sure that when you understand our cause and impact, you'll feel as passionately about making a difference as we do. You'll also feel good with the knowledge that your spreadsheet wizardry will have a tangible impact on lives within the community we serve.

Our fabulous staff team make sure that the day-to-day finances and operations run smoothly so that our Board can concentrate on strategy and governance.  As our Treasurer your role will include…

  • Working with the relevant staff and committee members to oversee the financial affairs of the organisation and ensure its sustainability 
  • Helping us to maintain and continuously improve our financial procedures and governance
  • Reporting back to the Board on the financial health of Headway Nottingham
  • Liaising with relevant staff to appraise the viability of plans, proposals and feasibility studies
  • Working closely with Charlotte, our Services Manager to produce our annual budget
  • Attending a once monthly evening meeting and occasional sub-committee meetings as required. Committing to sub-committees is optional, according to your availability
  • The role of Treasurer has a key Board function, so we need you to be responsive and reliable, albeit within the confines of your existing commitments 

As tempting as it is to require that our perfect Treasurer will have magic money-making abilities, we are aware that perfection does not exist. So, if you are yet to achieve money wizardry but you would like to use your skills to champion and improve the lot of a group of people who are so often unfairly marginalised in our community, please get in touch with the Chair of our Board of Trustees, Sam Harris at [email protected]
