key objectives:

nia, the charity for women and girls escaping male violence, is looking for a new treasurer to join our board of trustees.

For the last 40 years, nia has provided high quality, women-led services across north and east London. We operate two refuges, run the East London Rape Crisis helpline, and offer independent advocacy for victims of domestic and sexual violence to guide them through the courts.

Board members help set the organisation’s strategic goals, and provide support and oversight to the CEO and senior staff. They advise on fundraising, financial management, media relations and communication, and sit on interview panels when nia is hiring new staff. Trustees are expected to attend four board meetings a year, and may also work on individual projects, such as our recent successful “nia at 40” booklet and our fundraising evening at Conway Hall. Our trustees work on a voluntary basis, and are not expected to contribute financially to the organisation – all we want is your time.

The role of the Treasurer is to provide financial expertise and direction to the board of Trustees. The Treasurer’s aim is to oversee and scrutinise financial information to enable the board to fulfil their responsibilities for the overall governance and strategic direction of the nia.

The Treasurer will ensure that the organisation complies with its governing document, charity law, company law and any other relevant legislation or regulations and to make sure that the organisation pursues its objects as defined in its governing document.

The Treasurer’s role is also to work in partnership with the Chief Executive and Director of Finance helping them achieve the aims of the organisation and maintain fiscal health, accountability and stability.
