Overview

The National Childbirth Trust (NCT) is seeking a new Honorary Treasurer.

A voluntary trustee role, the Hon. Treasurer has Board level oversight of the financial, audit and risk management arrangements within the NCT group. NCT aims to follow sector best practice with regards to these matters and the Hon. Treasurer is there to give fellow Trustees advice, guidance and reassurance around financial, audit and risk management matters and to ensure appropriate Executive action.

In common with other charities, NCT is governed by a Trustee Board that takes overall responsibility for the NCT group. The key role of the Hon. Treasurer is to maintain an overview of the Group’s financial affairs, ensuring its financial viability and ensuring that proper financial records and procedures are maintained.

Given NCT’s scale (categorised as a medium sized enterprise) the Hon. Treasurer works with senior employees of the group, in particular the CEO and Corporate Resources Director, to whom most of the work is delegated, with the Hon. Treasurer retaining an oversight role.
