HOMELINK is seeking to recruit a trustee who would act as the charity’s Honorary Treasurer.
Working with Lewes District Council (LDC) and other agencies we offer interest-free loans to cover the deposit and rent in advance, to help those who LDC has no duty to house into private rented accommodation. The role of treasurer is a key appointment at this time as HOMELINK continues to grow in line with local demand for our service.
HOMELINK is a friendly team passionate about assisting the most vulnerable in our community into housing. We currently have 11 trustees with a varied range of skills and experience, five members of staff (part-time) and are supported by a group of dedicated volunteers.
As a full member of the Board of Trustees, the Treasurer acts as the Board’s principal financial adviser, and ensures that accurate and up-to-date financial records are maintained. This role is fully supported by a part-time (paid) financial assistant/bookkeeper.
Our aim is for the next Treasurer to be appointed as a trustee in the Spring, to allow plenty of time for handover and to get to know the workings of HOMELINK.
