Are you looking to use your accountancy skills and knowledge to help others and gain new experience?

Hill Homes is a Housing Association with a long history of involvement in the local community, also providing domiciliary care and support through our subsidiary company. We promote independent living and an active lifestyle, with support tailored to each individual’s needs.

The Association has a large investment portfolio of in excess of £10 Million. If a suitable opportunity occurs it is hoped to invest a proportion of this into a new housing development.

This is a great opportunity to join our Board and make a difference. The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and policies of the respective organisations and guiding and supporting the CEO and her staff.

Our current Honorary Treasurer reaches the end of his term of office in September 2021 and we are looking for a replacement to take over the role and ensure a smooth transition takes place.

The role involves:

  • Chairing four Finance, Risk & Audit Committee meetings per year, all of which are held in the evenings. These include annual meetings with the Auditors and our Investment Managers
  • Attending four Board meetings per year, three of which are held in the evening, the fourth being a morning meeting
  • Attending the AGM to present the statutory accounts. This is a morning meeting reviewing the monthly management accounts
  • Discussing the draft budget with the CEO and Finance Manager prior to presentation to the board
  • Ad hoc and informal involvement as required.

We are looking for a qualified accountant and preferably an individual with some not-for-profit experience.

Although the role is unpaid, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.
