Seeking qualified accountant to can provide leadership and support to our non-financial Trustees

Trustee / Committee volunteer needed for Thrive in RG7

Thrive is looking to recruit a new Trustee to join the Board as Chair of the Finance Committee (Treasurer). The Board provides strategic oversight of the organisation and works with the Chief Executive and Senior Managers to deliver Thrive’s Strategy to widen the reach of our services and build our financial health.

Thrive is the leading charity in the UK that uses gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people who are living with a disability or ill health, or are isolated, disadvantaged or vulnerable.

We are looking for a qualified accountant who has experience of charity finances/accounting and can provide leadership and support to the non-financial Trustees on the Board.

We also need an individual who can wholeheartedly endorse and support the aims and principles of Thrive. This does not mean you need to be an expert in horticulture or have experience of working with disabled, disadvantaged or vulnerable people to join the Board, although that could help.

Above all, we are looking for someone who shares our passion for using gardening to improve the lives of others and who is willing and able to commit around 1 day per month to work with us to achieve our goals.
