Would you like to join a growing team of volunteers & trustees to support the work of APF?
Location and experience are not an obstacle; do please get in touch if you would like to find out more. We are currently looking for people to help with the following roles:
Volunteer Bookkeeper: We are looking for someone to keep the organisation accounts and Gift Aid records of members and donors. You would assist the Treasurer in using cloud-based accounts and donation software. Some experience of accounting or charity accounts would be useful, but not necessary. Training can be provided alongside an introductory period. It is expected that 1-2 days/ month would be needed to complete regular updates of donor records and accounts. All expenses and setup costs would be reimbursed.
Become a trustee – There are 3 to 4 trustees’ meetings per year, which can be joined in person or by Skype. We have two roles available on the board of trustees:
The Honorary Secretary is a trustee who is responsible for ensuring that APF follows its legal requirements, for example, upholding the requirements of governing documents, charity law, and the Charity Commission. It will also include upholding requirements as a holder of personal information, e.g. GDPR. Regular review of APF policies and communications from the Charity Commission will be required. This role is not onerous. It would require someone who has good attention to detail and who can commit 2-3 hours per quarter to undertake what is outlined in the role description above, and commit to attending the trustees’ meetings.
The Vice-Chair is a trustee who acts as a deputy for the chair, taking on the chair’s role when the chair is unavailable, for example chairing meetings and preparing agendas. The vice-chair can only take on specific roles if they have been authorised to do so as set out in the governing document. This role would require someone who could be available to step in when needed, and commit to attending the trustees’ meetings.
