Contract Type: 
South West
Details of Role: 

Help Voices grow our impact

Voices is a registered charity and Women’s Aid member organisation working to support people impacted by domestic abuse to recover & thrive and to have their voices heard by services and agencies, improving responses to their needs. The charity has a growing role locally and nationally.

You as Finance Trustee would play a key role in oversight and advising the charity around the development of sustainable funding strategy and opportunities for income diversification. You would be joining our friendly and committed Board of 6 Trustees, with backgrounds in health care and management, probation services, law, adult education and HR as well as lived experience of domestic abuse. 

We would love to find someone with: 

  • Experience of good financial management, analytical and evaluation skills
  • Good communication and leadership skills
  • Willingness to devote time to carry out responsibilities
  • Understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of Trusteeship 
  • An understanding of VOICES’ work and challenges faced by our service users.
  • Financial business planning experience (desirable)

We are fully committed to increasing the diversity of our Board. Having a more diverse Board will help us to understand better the needs of the communities we serve. This role would be suited to someone without any previous board experience and a full induction will be provided. We are also keen to hear from people that do not come from a finance background that has a keen interest in what we do and feel they would have something to offer the board.

Time commitment 

The Board meets every quarter (meetings last 2-3 hours) and the Finance Sub-Committee meets every quarter c. 3 weeks before each Trustee meeting. 

In addition to attending board meetings (conducted via Zoom if not in person), the Finance Trustee could expect to spend about 1 day per month on the work involved in this role, carried out either at home or at VOICES’ premises. Other contact – usually electronic or by telephone – may be necessary both with the CEO and Administrator and with the Chairs of the Board and Finance Sub-Committee.
