Fund fo Human Need Vacancy for a Treasurer (voluntary post) Registered Charity No. 208866


The Methodist Church Fund for Human Need is a charity that gives one-off emergency payments to tide people over when they are destitute and desperate, irrespective of their faith, ethnic origin or circumstances. There has been a significant increase in the number of applications for help in recent years and some months as many as 100 people in need receive support.

The trustees are looking to appoint a successor to the Treasurer from 1 September 2021.

The Treasurer has responsibility for the financial management of the Fund and has regular day-to-day contact with the parttime Administrator and liaises with the Chair and the Grants Officer responsible for the allocation of emergency payments.

The trustees intend to introduce a new accounting system which will better facilitate the administration of the Fund and are seeking a person who possesses the necessary expertise and experience to advise on and implement this project.


For further information please contact the Chair, the Revd Roger Cresswell - 01543 473433 / by 28 February 2021.
