Board of Trustees Treasurer

The Treasurer will oversee the financial and assurance matters of the charity in line with good practice and in accordance with the governing document and legal requirements. The Treasurer will report to the Board of Trustees at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation to enable the Board to better make strategic decisions. The Treasurer will ensure that effective financial and other risk measures, controls and procedures are put in place, and are appropriate for the charity.

METRO is recruiting for a new Treasurer to lead on finance as part of the charity’s voluntary Board of Trustees. The charity is in a period of dynamic change, where we are proactively seeking to become an actively anti-racist organisation. We are working to support changes around EDI issues in several ways, and we are seeking a new Chair who can support this development and has experience of leadership around these issues. The role is currently being held on an interim basis by an existing trustee who is willing to handover when the right recruit is in place.   

We want to create an environment in which intersectional identities are valued and represented across the team, especially in our senior roles while fulfilling METRO’s constitutional stipulation for majority LGBTQ+ identifying staff and trustee teams. This intersectionality includes, but is not limited to, people of colour, young people, gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, non-binary, gender-fluid and gender-diverse people, and people with lived experience of socio-economic inequities.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
