The Trust for Developing Communities (TDC) is a dynamic and growing charity tackling inequality in Brighton & Hove.

We are seeking an experienced, qualified finance professional, to join our Board of Trustees in the vital voluntary role of Treasurer and Trustee.

We are looking for a finance professional with the skills and knowledge to provide oversight and guidance to improve the finance functions of the charity. You will maintain an overview of the TDC’s financial affairs, supporting us in achieving long-term financial viability, and we will need you to provide both scrutiny and support to the Board of Trustees and to the Finance Manager to oversee financial procedures, reporting and risk management.

The role is voluntary and involves attendance at quarterly Board Meetings and Internal Sub-Committee Meetings, in addition to supporting senior staff to improve finance strategy, reporting and procedures. Meetings can be arranged during working hours or evenings, as convenient. 

We are an independent charity with a proud 20-year track record of delivering community development work to empower communities in Brighton and Hove. We are a values driven organisation which believes in equality, community, diversity and inclusion. We believe community led solutions produce longer lasting and more meaningful change and that strong communities are the key to health and happiness. Our seemingly affluent City is home to some of the most deprived areas in England. We work with people and communities facing challenges, supporting them to address the issues facing communities and take more control of their own lives. Our work includes significant local authority contracts to deliver community development directly in neighbourhoods across the city with extensive youth work, citywide, to address inequalities with Black and Minority Ethnic communities and with older people. 

You will be joining TDC at an important time as our City faces the unprecedented challenge of the Covid -19 pandemic. TDC has a crucial part to play in supporting communities to respond to this challenge – and the Treasurer is a key role in ensuring that TDC maintains the robustness we have built up over 20 years. We look forward to welcoming a new Trustee to join us in supporting TDC’s important and impactful work.
