Sonic Bothy is seeking a Treasurer to join its board and support our organisation
Sonic Bothy is an inclusive new music organisation. Our vision is to create opportunities for disabled musicians to individually create, perform and collaborate in making original new and experimental music.
We seek ways to collaborate on a truly equal footing within mixed ability ensembles. We wish to realise the significant contributions disabled musicians can make to sound, art and music culture, and to celebrate and promote music created by individual artists and mixed ability groups. More information is available here.
We are going through an exciting phase of growth and development, as an organisation and as a board. To support us through this phase we want to recruit a Treasurer to join the board.
The Treasurer Role
The Treasurer helps us to continue to develop good financial governance, maintains an overview of Sonic Bothy’s affairs and confirms that proper financial records and procedures are maintained. The Treasurer has specific responsibilities as a Trustee of Sonic Bothy. These are explained under Duties.
Skills and Experience Required
You will have financial management knowledge and skills and will be able to bring your expertise to this vital role and work alongside existing and future Trustees. You might be an accountant or have financial management skills and knowledge through work in a financial role within a private or public sector organisation, the third sector, or running your own business.
Our new Treasurer should have an interest in music / arts / culture and participatory and socially-engaged work and recognise the impact that it can have on people’s lives. You do not need to have previous experience in these areas or have had previous experience on a Board.
All day to day financial management is completed by Sonic Bothy staff, who work alongside our accountants The Kelvin Partnership.
