By becoming a Trustee, you will make a positive difference to children and parents’ lives and gain many valuable skills and experiences along the way.
Home-Start Kirklees is an established family support charity based in Kirklees. We support hundreds of families every year, helping them to improve family life through targeted group support sessions and one to one support remotely or in the home. We work closely with health colleagues, social care, Kirklees Council and the voluntary, community sector.
We are currently looking to expand our Board of Trustees. A Trustee is a volunteer who shares responsibility for ensuring Home-Start Kirklees is working effectively and within charity law. We are keen to have a diverse range of skills and outlooks on the Board and welcome interest from people of all ages, backgrounds, and communities (aged 18 and above). You will be supported as you go along and learn more about the role over time.
We are currently looking for new trustees with a specific set of skills in either of the following areas:
Treasurer (qualified accountant)
We are seeking a qualified and experienced accountant (CIMA or ICAEW) to take over the role of Treasurer. We have a small but effective administrative team in-house and outsourced support for payroll and month end processes. We use cloud based accounting software (Quick Books) and have well developed financial procedures and policies. The new Treasurer will take over the role of overseeing the financial processes, monthly fund analysis and reporting, budgeting, project costing, financial forecasting and the preparation of year end accounts. We are looking for someone who understands Charity finances and who can play an active role in supporting the further growth of our services to families who are facing challenges.
