About the role

The Treasurer is a key role supporting Trustees and Committee Members by ensuring the finances of the KPA are properly managed in line with Charity Commission reporting, accounting and financial governance requirements.

Commitment

The role requires a regular time commitment of approximately one day a month, although more may be required to produce the annual accounts.
