Treasurer for Jackson Lane

Location: London

Date Posted: 03/01/2019

Closing Date: 04/04/2019

Job Description

We are seeking a chartered accountant with energy and enthusiasm to join our Board as Treasurer. Jacksons Lane is an arts centre in Highgate, north London that has a 160-seat theatre, is the leading venue for contemporary circus in the UK and uses performing arts in its outreach across north London, building self-esteem in disadvantaged youth.

The centre is going through an exciting time, with planning application submitted to spend £5m refurbishing the centre. Haringey Council has promised £1m and the Arts Council £2.5m – making Jacksons Lane one of only two venues in London they have funded for capital works.

Turnover is roughly £2m. There is an excellent financial controller on staff and our auditors declare our accounts exemplary. But of course it is good practice to have a treasurer who can provide oversight of financial matters.

Whilst day-to-day and operational management of Jacksons Lane is delegated to our Executive Director and Artistic Director, our board is ultimately responsible for the governance of the charity. Our aim is to have a balanced board, which represents the diversity of our local community, including people from different generations and cultures with a wide range of professional skills that can be used to the benefit of Jacksons Lane.

In summary, Trustees are responsible for:

  • our overall performance, maintaining our commitment to the aims and objectives of the charity
  • our values, integrity and reputation
  • our staff, who are responsible for the day-to-day running of Jacksons Lane
  • our fiscal health, including ensuring the Board of Trustees has finance specialists within its membership
  • our governance, maintaining our legal responsibilities and operating as an effective Board

We work in partnership with our Executive Team to regularly review, renew and maintain

  • our business direction and strategy
  • our management team’s performance
  • our policies, establishing and monitoring them as needed
  • our risks, identifying and managing them
  • our ongoing delivery against plans

Our Board pays particular attention to:

  • maximising our impact and effectiveness
  • listening and responding to our stakeholders – from audiences to funding bodies
  • making sure we use our public funds prudently
  • investing in the skills of our staff
  • making sure we act fairly, responsibly, transparently, proportionately and ethically

Time Commitment

Our executive team, headed by the Executive Director and Artistic Director, are employed by the Board of Trustees to run the organization on a day-to-day basis. Being a Trustee of Jacksons Lane is therefore focused on non-executive duties and is likely to involve approximately half a day a month of your time, depending on the time of year and whether you are involved in any additional committees.

Each Board member has their own particular field of expertise and your skills will be drawn upon to support the work of the charity in your specified field. Overall, your commitment will require, but may not be limited to, the following

  • Attend Board Meetings: held every 6-8 weeks, usually from 7 to 8.30pm on a weekday evening at Jacksons Lane in Highgate.
  • Read Board Papers: Staff aim to circulate Board papers to all Trustees via email, so they are received in good time before the meeting. Trustees are expected to prepare for meetings, having read and digested the papers in advance and be ready to contribute to discussions and decision-making.
  • Participate in a Finance subcommittee reviewing draft accounts and considering financial matters
  • Attend Planning Meetings: We also aim to hold an off-site away day when it is agreed necessary to reflect on the governance of the Charity, and to focus on future strategy. This may vary slightly in nature from year-to-year but it is a time commitment Trustees should be aware of that can occur once every 18-24 months.
  • The AGM is held as part of Jacksons Lane’s programme of Board Meetings.

Candidates from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
