WE'RE LOOKING FOR A TREASURER FOR OUR BOARD

 

Produced Moon’s board is looking to grow later this year, as we add another voice to our Trustees. We’re looking for someone interested in being our treasurer. 

 

Produced Moon is a young organisation in an innovative and rapidly growing sector. As our treasurer you would both support us as we deliver the ongoing financial management of the organisation as well as helping us think strategically about our future, building financial processes and structures as we grow. This role is great for someone who is interested in gaining board experience and working in a hands-on, collaborative role to support an arts charity delivering meaningful creative projects. 

TREASURER CALL OUTProduced Moon
00:00 / 08:25

We’re looking for someone who is excited by what Produced Moon does, who shares our values, and who is interested in bringing their experience in finance to join our team. You don’t need to have worked in charity finance before, or have been a board member, and we can offer support and guidance for people who are new to working with charity finances in this way and are keen to learn.
