Jacari is a charity based in Oxford and Bristol that supports children who speak English as an additional language, by providing them with free 1:1 home tuition. Our volunteer tutors are all students at the Universities of Bristol, Oxford and Oxford Brookes. Jacari's Trustee Board has ultimate responsibility for Jacari and its operations in Oxford and Bristol. We are currently 6 Trustees with diverse backgrounds (teaching, accountancy, academia, IT, law and charity sector) that support our two employees (a full-time coordinator in Oxford and a part-time coordinator in Bristol), approximately 200 student volunteers and approximately 200 pupils receiving classes.
We are currently looking for a new Finance Trustee to join us. It would be ideal if this person was Bristol-based to help support our rapidly growing operations here, but this is not essential.
The Trustees meet formally once a quarter (usually September, December, March and June) in either Oxford or Bristol for a two hour meeting. Alongside this, each trustee has an individual area of responsibility (fundraising, IT etc) in which they directly help the coordinators. We estimate that Trustees should budget on a one to two hour a week time commitment.
The Finance Trustee has responsibility for advising the board on all financial matters, administering payroll and monitoring accounts. This includes communicating with the accountants who audit our accounts each year. Some accounting experience would be useful, but not essential.
Please do feel free to contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have any questions.
Please send an email to email@example.com outlining why you'd be interested in joining our team.
