Financial Director

Tees Cottage Pumping Station is a small voluntary organisation in Darlington committed to preserving the industrial heritage of a Victorian water pumping station on the River Tees. We have been supported in the past 5 years by the Heritage Lottery Fund Cummins and Groundwork NE & Cumbria and have just agreed a lease with Northumbrian Water to continue to run and operate the pumping station for the next 50 years. The Board of Directors is looking for a committed individual with substantial financial expertise, to become the Finance Director of the organisation and help us to gain charitable status. This is a voluntary position.
Preferably you will:

  • Be a qualified accountant or have Treasurer experience of at least 3 years
  • Have a strong commitment to the ethos and values of the organisation
  • Bring your time, energy and commitment to work in the best interests of the organisation and act as a full Director of the Board
  • Have experience and understanding of Charity Accounting including SOFA and SORP at Treasurer level and be able to liaise and work with our accountancy service provider

While all our trustees have responsibility for the money, as Finance Director you will have particular responsibility for overseeing the finances of Tees Cottage Pumping Station and reporting to the Board of Directors.

The Board meets approx. 6 times per year with the additional AGM.
