Trustees and Treasurer of the management committee (voluntary positions)

MGEDT is looking for new Trustees to join the board from Summer 2017. Trustees determine the strategic vision and future direction of the Charity and we are seeking people who are able to think creatively and who possess independent judgment and strong decision making skills. Candidates should be committed to the aims and objectives of the Charity, add value to our Board in terms of offering new or different perspectives and be comfortable working strategically as a member of a senior management team.

As treasurer you will maintain accurate accounting records for the charity and ensure that proper financial controls are established and complied with. You will prepare and present relevant and regular financial reports for the management committee, including annual accounts and submit properly audited or independently examined accounts to the charity and any other financial reports as necessary.

You will also advise on the financial implications of committee decisions and take the lead in planning and budgeting the branches finances with the rest of the management committee.

Applications are welcomed from women, people from a range of ethnic groups and of retirement age, all of whom are currently underrepresented on the Board. Our Trustees are not remunerated. However, all reasonable expenses are reimbursed and induction and on-going training is provided. There are four day-time Board meetings a year to be held in London and/or other central locations nationwide, plus an Annual General Meeting and any additional meetings as required.

In this recruitment round we would particularly welcome application from candidates who have experience of treating people with eating disorders in therapeutic settings. We are keen to strengthen the board’s expertise and interest in these areas: corporate business /legal affairs, public relations, fundraising, commutations, and HR/employment.

For the Treasurer role, you must have a good knowledge of finance and preferably a qualification in accountancy, although relevant work experience will also fulfil the essential criteria.

Ideally you will have a good knowledge and understanding of eating disorders in males, but is not essential.

Please be aware there is no set deadline for applying and we will keep the recruitment process open until positions have been filled. Interviews will be offered to suitable candidates (interview date and times tbc). It would be ideal that you are able to attend the next Trustees meeting, which take place once per quarter. Both the interviews and the Trustee meeting will take place in a central Brighton location. We are unable to offer much flexibility on these dates but if you have any problems or concerns do let us know.
