Having obtained a substantial grant from Power to Change, we are seeking a (freelance, part-time) project support worker.
The KCLT organisation is run by a small group of directors who oversee the governance and management of the CLT and set the strategic direction, deciding on project priorities. Directors are taken from the membership. Our members are the bedrock of our organisation and are made up of local residents or those with an interest in Knaresborough. Members support the board in developing the right strategy for the town.
Knaresborough CLT is at an important stage of it's development and we are looking for someone who can provide the right support to help us to make our vision happen. Negotiations have begun for our first piece of land, our first project and we are looking for someone with the passion and drive to join the team and help us to get there.
Hours: 12.5 a week (flexible working).
Short-term contract until August 2019 with extension possible
Responsible to: Chair and Board of Directors.
We are seeking an experienced accountant to take up the role of Treasurer for the newly formed Knaresborough Community Land Trust (CLT). Knaresborough CLT was set up to create community-owned affordable housing to benefit those living and working in Knaresborough. This is an exciting time for the CLT as we launch our membership drive and move towards the development of affordable homes within the coming months.
The Treasurer is a member of the Board which currently meets monthly. Board members are all volunteers. As a member-led Community Benefit Society, we are regulated by the FCA. This is an excellent opportunity to join the organisation from the start and contribute to its strategic direction. The treasurer will take the lead on setting up the financial controls for the CLT and ensuring effective and timely reporting. The role will be rewarding and offer a challenge for someone wishing to be part of a groundbreaking initiative.
