Other Committee roles
In addition to seeking a new Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, ActionAid Guernsey would also welcome interest from anyone that would like to take a more active role in the charity by joining the Committee. We would welcome interest with anyone who thinks their skills and time would benefit the charity. This can be very flexible on time commitment.
Volunteers and Supports
ActionAid Guernsey is also looking for volunteers and supporters, that would like to be involved in the charity. This is a great opportunity for someone that wants to be involved on an ad hoc basis. The time commitment of volunteer and support roles can be very flexible.
The ActionAid Guernsey Support Group is seeking a new Chair for the local charity. This is a voluntary position with an expected commitment of between 5-10 hours per month, but this can be flexible. The Chair has overall responsibility for the charity, ensuring compliance with legal governance requirements, chairs Committee meetings and the AGM, and gives speeches/presentations. The role would be perfect for someone that is enthusiastic about working for an international charity and would like to use their skills, experience and contacts to lead the charity forward – including focussing on volunteer recruitment and exploring new fundraising opportunities.
The ActionAid Guernsey Support Group is seeking a new Treasurer for the local charity. This role would suit someone with finance experience or confident with accounting and use of budgets. The Treasurer is responsible for collating the charity’s financial accounts, which will be discussed at Committee meetings, and liaising with the auditor for the annual accounts, produced ahead of each AGM. The Treasurer also holds the cheque book and is a signatory on the bank account. The funds raised at all events, and any expenses are all cleared through the Treasurer. The Treasurer also deals with Income Tax submissions and is responsible for preparing cheques to send funds to ActionAid UK. This is a voluntary position with the expected time commitment of 2 – 5 hours per month, but the Treasurer could also assist with other areas of the charity (such as volunteering or arranging ad-hoc fundraising – if of interest).
The Secretary’s main duties are to organise Committee meetings, produce meeting agendas, take minutes, and compile the list of apologies for meetings. The Secretary may also choose to assist with other administrative and governance tasks. This is a voluntary position with the expected time commitment of 2 – 5 hours per month, but the Secretary could also assist with other areas of the charity (such as volunteering or arranging ad-hoc fundraising – if of interest).
