Organisation Description

The Child Accident Prevention Trust (CAPT) is the only UK charity to focus on preventing death and serious injury to children from avoidable accidents. Our vision is a world where all children lead active, healthy lives, safe from the disabling effects of serious accidental injury.

We address the three pillars of accident prevention: empowerment, education and influence. We enable parents to make sense of safety advice and nurture happy, healthy families. We provide educational resources, advice and training for everyone working with children and families. And we use our expertise to advise business and government.

While our work benefits all children and their parents, we target disadvantaged families who have least access to opportunities to learn about safety and whose children are at greatest risk of serious harm.

What are they looking for?

Small, well-respected national charity with plans for growth seeks a Treasurer to oversee financial management, report on finances to the other Trustees and actively participate in Board discussions and decision-making. You will participate in eight Board Meetings a year (four short virtual meetings and four longer face-to-face meetings in London). Meetings are currently held during the working day. Your senior level experience of financial management will ideally be complemented by some knowledge of charity finance, though this is not essential. Our finances are well-managed and our cashflow is strong, with tight cost-control and debt-chasing, though we are seeking to streamline our financial management to reflect a dynamic and fast-moving environment.

You can also contact the charity's Chief Executive to arrange an informal discussion.
