Job Description

Good with numbers? Passionate about making a difference? Read on. There has never been a better time to join our charity as a Board member for Activity Alliance. The charity is in an exciting period and our new strategy needs dynamic Board members to turn our vision into reality.

Our philosophy of inclusion starts with our Board and works its way throughout our Alliance. We encourage diversity of thought and culture and want our Board to represent modern Britain in all its’ intersectional glory. We’re an energetic bunch with different life experiences, and you wouldn’t call any of us stuffy or boring. We pride ourselves on being quite the opposite.

We are disabled and non-disabled people, who come together a minimum of six times a year. The Board meetings are professional, informative and there is always plenty of laughter. Our Board enjoy making active lives possible alongside our enthusiastic staff team. Together we are a mix of ages and talents, and we are all people with a passion for change.

Currently, our Board includes expertise in the commercial, sport development, disability, communications, health and education sectors but, as you can see, we are short of someone with expertise in finance. We are searching for a qualified chartered accountant - who is eager to drive change - to fill that gap.

Your responsibilities will include (but are not exclusive to) supporting the Activity Alliance Executive team in planning and monitoring the organisation’s annual budgets and long-term financial planning for a sustainable future and ensure we make the best use of our financial resource. To ensure the Board understand their legal responsibilities in relation to the financial processes and procedures of the charity and be part of the Finance, Audit, Risk and Governance [FARG] committee.

We want to hear from passionate, committed individuals who understand inclusiveness, have a strong financial background and want to make a real difference.

It is not essential to have sat on a board before. Get in touch if this sounds like an interesting way to broaden your sport, charity or disability sector experience and help us influence change.
