Deben Extra Care Society is an independent charity formed in 1976 to run the Highlands residential home in Woodbridge on a not-for-profit basis. The society is fully autonomous, but is also a member society of the Abbeyfield Society, a national provider of care homes. We are recruiting a new Treasurer to act as a trustee, an officer and director of the Society, and a member of the Committee - the role acts as chief financial officer, duties include financial management and its oversight as well as statutory reporting.
We are looking for someone with a background in finance and accounting with solid experience in audit processes and preparation of statutory accounts. We are hoping the new Treasurer will perform a review of the role and make recommendations on the approach to fulfilling it. We are a well-established organisation that recognises the need for excellence and ongoing adaptation in an increasingly regulated and complex environment. By bringing your knowledge, skills and experience you will be adding strength to our team and helping us identify and implement the changes we need to make to maintain and enhance our position. Crucially, you will be helping us to ensure that we deliver an excellent service to all our stakeholders, most importantly to our residents.
What’s in it for the volunteer?
This is an opportunity to contribute to the development of our Society at an important time, particularly given the effects of Covid 19 on the care sector. You would be joining a friendly, caring and committed team of professional people, and would be fully supported by induction and a comprehensive handover.
How to Apply
Please provide a CV or similar (LinkedIn profile, portfolio etc) and a supporting statement explaining your suitability for the role. This should include why you are interested in the role, how your skills and experience match the role description, and any other relevant details.
