Job Description

We are London Youth, a charity on a mission to improve the lives of young people in London, challenging them to be the best they can. Young people need opportunities outside school to have fun with their friends, to learn new skills, to make a positive change in their communities and to shape the city they live in.

Keith Ward has served on our Trustee Board since 2012 as Treasurer of London Youth and Chair of the Finance Committee. We are looking to recruit a Treasurer Elect to join the Board, get up to speed and take over when Keith’s term of office ends in March 2021.

We are looking to build on Keith’s strong leadership and recruit a Treasurer who will demonstrate commitment to supporting and challenging young people in London. We are looking for someone who has experience in a senior financial role. Using your financial acumen and knowledge of charity finance you will steer the Board in meeting the charity’s strategic aims and objectives and ensure the proper financial management and sustainability of the charity.

We are looking for strategic skills and sensitive leadership, supporting the Executive and ensuring engagement and understanding of the Board in the finances of the charity. In return, you will have the opportunity to shape and support a significant youth charity with an amazing history. You will join our new chair, Stephen Moss CBE, our President Sir Ken Olisa OBE and our new Patron, His Royal Highness Prince Edward,  The Earl of Wessex and work with a committed and diverse Trustee Board.

The Treasurer will oversee the financial matters of the charity in line with good practice and in accordance with the governing document and legal requirements. The Treasurer is responsible for chairing the Finance Committee meetings and working with the Director of Finance to ensure that financial strategy is developed and followed to support our overall direction. You will determine the committee agenda and ensure that meetings are productive and report the recommendations of the Finance Committee to the Board.

Trustees are appointed to serve a three-year term and eligible for re-appointment for two additional terms. The Treasurer is elected annually at the AGM, based on nominations from the Trustee Board. The Treasurer also sits on the Board of the subsidiary trading company and two charities administered by London Youth.

London Youth embraces equality, diversity and inclusion. We are committed to the ongoing development and building of a team that values and represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills and welcome applications that reflect this.
