Experienced accountant seeking charity trustee role?

The National Youth Arts Trust is looking for a new financial trustee to take on the role of Treasurer for the Trust.

If you, or anyone you know is interested in joining our charity as Treasurer, we’d love to hear from you!

The National Youth Arts Trust (NYAT) is a small arts charity that exists to widen access to the performing arts for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. We award bursaries for music, dance and drama lessons, develop and run youth theatre projects in areas of low arts provision, and enable children to attend professional theatre performances, often for the first time.

We are seeking an experienced accountant with, ideally, some experience of charity accounts. This person would be the Trustee to whom the Board can delegate its duty of detailed oversight of the charity finances.

Key responsibilities include reporting to the Board at quarterly meetings on financial issues and summarizing our financial position, approving monthly outgoing payments, chairing quarterly finance committee conference calls and overseeing the production of our annual accounts and budget.

The trustees meet in London as a full board every three to four months to review beneficiary updates, fundraising plans, finances, operational updates, and new projects. Each trustee is also a member of one of three sub-committees – finance, fundraising and creative & grant giving – which hold conference calls every quarter between board meetings.

The role of treasurer is pivotal and offers a unique opportunity to be involved at an early stage in a developing organisation with a strong board, a notable patron base, and national ambitions.

The treasurer’s support and involvement will make all the difference in helping to place young people with genuine potential on the path to a successful career in the performing arts, regardless of background or circumstance.

For any further information please contact us – or 07891835589

Please note this is a voluntary position to join our Board of Trustees.
