Treasurer

Just for Kids Law is seeking a Treasurer to join our Board of Trustees. Working as part of a skilled and committed Board, you will oversee the charity’s financial and risk management processes; monitor the charity’s income, outgoings and cash-flow forecasting; and maintain a strategic overview of the organisation’s financial resources.

Just for Kids Law is a young and ambitious charity that works with and for children and young people to ensure that they have their legal rights and entitlements respected and promoted and their voices heard and valued. We bring together legal advice and representation, youth advocacy, participation and youth opportunities to help young people move from striving to thriving. We also work for systemic change through strategic litigation, campaigning and supporting others to work for children’s rights.

As well as a commitment to Just for Kids Law’s strategic objectives, our new Treasurer will bring considerable experience of charity finance, possibly having worked as a Finance Director in a charity of an equivalent size. As the vast majority of our income is from Trusts and Foundations, they will have a good understanding of fundraising and accounting for charitable funds.

They should also be a good communicator and able to explain financial matters to non-experts, including trustees with recent experience as clients of Just for Kids Law. We hope they will also share our commitment to building a Board which reflects our client group and shares our understanding of the value of lived experience.
