Ninewells Community Garden is looking for a new trustee to support our Charity to grow and develop. Would you like to join the Board of a local charity which works to improve the health & wellbeing of children, young people and adults?
Ninewells Community Garden is a small local charity and exists to promote physical activity and mental health through community gardening. It sits within the grounds of Ninewells Hospital and Medical School and within the Menzieshill and Charleston communities.
Despite being a small charity we consistently achieve remarkable outcomes with minimal resources and are often told we have improved people’s lives. We rely on a dedicated team of staff, trustees and volunteers to maintain our garden and develop and deliver new opportunities.
We are seeking an additional trustee to be our Treasurer. The Board is currently made up of 8 members and meets every 6 weeks and is looking to recruit a new member. You will be part of a small and friendly team of trustees and staff who are passionate about how gardening & being in green space increases our feeling of wellness and reduces social isolation.
The main duties are to maintain an overview of the charity’s financial affairs and ensure its financial viability; control expenditure; maintain proper financial records and procedures; and fulfil regulatory reporting requirements. You will work with our current Treasurer who wishes to step down from the role in the New Year.
As Ninewells Community Garden does not employ a finance officer or company secretary, this is a hands-on role covering the full range of financial, accounting, regulatory and governance issues.
Our trustees are all volunteers, most of whom live or work in the local community, and all of whom use their skills, knowledge and experience to help guide and govern our service, shape strategy, and give direction to the charity. This is an opportunity for you to make a real difference to the charity and to the local community.
