We are looking for a new treasurer to help lead the charity through a new phase of development which will see greater stability, increased capacity and new services to better support those who need our services.
We are pleased to report that recently secured funding from the Tudor Trust, National Lottery Community Fund, and the Scottish Government’s Victim at the Centre Fund has effectively tripled AMIS’s turnover, and potential impact, for the next three years.
As an expanding organization we have engaged with the Cranfield Trust to help us bring additional skills and expertise to the board; building our team to meet the demands of our new situation.
Ths is an exciting time for a new treasurer to join a committed team, and guide our new projects to maximise the very real difference AMIS can make to the lives of men across Scotland who experience domesic or partner abuse, and to their families.
The successful candidate will ideally be familiar with XERO and charity sector accounting.
The role of treasurer is a voluntary position although reasonable expenses for travel, etc, may be claimed.
The head office of AMIS is located in Dalkeith. Meetings may also be held elsewhere or via Zoom using a hybrid flexible working model.
Currently eight or nine board meetings per year (including an AGM). The next AGM will take place in December 2023. The treasurer is expected to communicate regularly with the CEO and is responsible for:
• controlling and accounting for the organisation’s finances
• issuing receipts for cash received, keeping records of cash paid out, and being a counter signatory to any major banking transaction
• overseeing bookkeeping
• presenting financial reports, raising issues and answering questions at regular meetings and the AGM
• liaising with the auditors or financial examiners for the annual review of accounts
• ensuring statutory returns are made to any relevant regulators
Founded in 2010, AMIS provides Scotland’s only national specialist helpline, involving longer-term casework if needed, for men experiencing domestic or partner abuse. We support individuals aged 16+ who identify as men, and anyone with concerns about such men. AMIS also provides training for other services wishing to learn more about supporting male victims, and engages with policy makers to highlight the need for support provision for all victims and survivors of domestic abuse in Scotland.
AMIS currently employs one full-time and two part-time members of staff. We are utilizing our recently secured funding to recruit new staff members (2.2 FTE equivalent) to increase helpline capacity, launch a new community based support project and increase advocacy work.
