OneSound (formerly MAYC Orchestra and Singers) is one of the UK’s leading Christian worship youth choirs and bands. We host weekends packed full of music, prayer, and fellowship, where we help young people aged 16-26 to grow as musicians, leaders, and disciples of Christ so they can share their God-given musical gifts to inspire the wider church and community.
OneSound is currently seeking to recruit a volunteer Finance Trustee (including Governance and the responsibility for day-to-day financial operations). This is an excellent opportunity to be actively involved in supporting the work of a young, dynamic and current Christian charity with a national reach.
We are particularly interested in hearing from you if you have a proven ability to communicate and explain financial information to members of the Board and other stakeholders. An understanding and acceptance of the legal duties, responsibilities and liabilities of trusteeship is also desirable.
Trustees are currently appointed on a voluntary basis and required to commit to a minimum term of appointment of three years. Board meetings currently take place virtually up to 6 times per year but we will hope to meet in person in the coming months. Trustees also have the opportunity to contribute to the work of our organisation outside of Board meetings in a range of ways depending on their skillset.
The Finance Trustee will support the Board to oversee the financial matters of the charity in line with good practice and legal requirements, and report to the Board at regular intervals about the financial position of the charity. The Finance Trustee will ensure that effective financial measures, controls, and procedures are put in place and are appropriate for the charity. This role will also include the duties of a traditional treasurer. This includes the day to day bookkeeping of the charity and the preparation of budgets for individual events and annually in conjunction with the Chair, any other finance team members and the Artistic Director.
If you have experience in financial running of an organisation and fundraising, particularly in an arts organisation, then we would love to hear from you. Please download a copy of the job description and email a copy of a covering letter and any relevant experience to [email protected] by 1st September 2021. Once the deadline has passed we will arrange an interview should your application be successful.
