Finance and Audit Committee Members
We are currently looking for Finance and Audit Committee Members. Although prior non-executive director experience is not essential, candidates should already have significant experience of working beyond their own organisations in professional or business networks or similar organisations and have a good understanding of the role of working in a non-executive director position. You will be able to use your relevant expertise to develop the organisation at a governance level, inform strategic decisions, and guide the management and direction of this national charity.
The purpose and responsibility of the Finance and Audit Committee is set by SCIAF’s Board of Trustees, who recognise that the committee plays a key role in the oversight and monitoring of the work of SCIAF and thus strengthens its accountability.
The Committee plays a vital role by contributing technical and professional advice, expertise and constructive critique to staff in the development and approval of strategies and plans with a particular focus on monitoring financial activity. Another key function of the committee is to offer support and advice when requested to the Director and senior staff.
Committee members are expected to attend four committee meetings throughout the year, and attend events etc. as required.
