TechforTrade is a small seven-year-old International Development charity working at the interface of technology, trade and entrepreneurship. The charity’s current work is focused on the development of our Digital Blacksmith initiativeand it’s a great example of how TechforTrade is working with local partners, to develop a sustainable social business that will create new economic opportunities and improve the lives of the poor.
The charity is in the process of converting from a Charitable Limited Company to the new Charitable Incorporate Organisation structure in order to simplify the administration of the charity. At the same time we are taking steps to simplify and streamline our financial governance and to support these changes, we wish to appoint a Volunteer Honorary Treasurer to join our board of trustees.

The Treasurer will assist the board by:

Maintaining a strategic overview of the financial affairs of TechforTrade, ensuring financial viability, compliance with relevant legislative frameworks, effective use of resources and ensuring that proper financial records and procedures are maintained. Supporting our volunteer Chief Executive and acting as the key advisor to the Trustee Board on financial matters. Contributing to the Board’s role in giving strategic direction to the organisation, setting overall policy, defining goals and setting targets and evaluating performance against agreed targets.
