The Friends of Stretford Public Hall (FOSPH) are looking to appoint a new Treasurer, to join the Hall’s Board of Directors.
Our vision is for Stretford Public Hall to be a unique and thriving multi-purpose venue at the heart of Stretford, owned and run by the local community. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with the management of this unique community asset, as we approach the exciting next stage of the Hall’s renovation and development.
The Treasurer will work closely with the Board’s Finance Sub-committee, providing financial oversight, advising on financial reporting, banking and book-keeping, and helping the Board to consider the financial implications of strategic developments.
The responsibility of Stretford Public Hall’s finances rests with the Board of Directors as a whole, with all Board members sharing responsibility and being equally accountable. The role of the Treasurer is to advise the Board, to help the Board meet its management obligations to the Friends of Stretford Public Hall.
The role of Treasurer is voluntary though reasonable out-of-pocket expenses can be reimbursed.
We are keen to hear from anyone interested in the role of Treasurer but we are particularly looking for someone with financial or accounting qualifications, experience and understanding of financial regulations and compliance relating to the charity sector, and experience of financial analysis and budgeting.
In addition, as a member of the Friends of Stretford Public Hall Board you will be expected to have a commitment to the aims and objectives of the Friends of Stretford Public Hall, an ability to communicate effectively and contribute constructively to decision-making, and an ability to work as part of a small team.
