Treasurer role

The Board are seeking a new Treasurer who will support the finance team and Chief Executives, oversee the charity’s financial risk-management process and report financial health to the board of trustees at regular intervals. The Treasurer will also be responsible for monitoring the financial standing of the charity and updating the Board regarding cash-flow forecasting, income streams, out-going expenses and the overarching strategic management of the organisation’s financial resources.

You can find out more about Diverse Cymru’s work here.

Your Skills

For the Treasurer we are looking for a skilled finance professional with experience of financial management and reporting and risk management. Experience working with charities would be an advantage, but not essential.

Diverse Cymru provides front line services to over 2,000 people across Wales specialising in support for disabled people in receipt of Direct Payments, mental health recovery support for black and minority ethnic people and advocacy for disabled people. We are particularly interested in receiving applications to our board from people with lived experience and a full induction and ongoing training will be provided.

Time Commitment

Trustee meetings are held once every two months (usually on a weekday evening) and there will be the opportunity through the year to engage with the amazing Diverse Cymru team to support their work.

The Treasurer will also need to engage with the finance team between meetings to ensure the Board are appraised of relevant financial matters and support the finance team in their work.

These are voluntary, unremunerated roles. Reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

To Apply

Please submit a CV and short covering note setting out why you are interested in becoming the Treasurer and what experience you would bring to the Board.

Please email your application or any questions to

The closing date for applications is 5pm on 20th July 2020.

Applicants should be willing to undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.

Diverse Cymru is committed to making any necessary reasonable adjustments to the roles that would enable access to opportunities for disabled applicants or continued engagement for any trustee who develops a disabling condition.

Location | WFH (Working from home)

Salary | £1.5k (based on 15 days at £100pd – necessary expenses paid)

Closing date | Midnight Sunday 19th July 2020

Interview date | Week commencing 20th July 2020 (Online interview, conducted via Zoom)

Founded in 2014, The Other Room is Cardiff’s first pub theatre. Within our purpose built space we run a year-round programme. We produce and curate plays, and our emphasis is on supporting the very best in Welsh and Wales-based artists. We are an intimate theatre of just 45 seats, and we bring audiences back to the live experience with an intensity no other venue in Cardiff offers.

The role has been created in an attempt to break down some of the access barriers that stop some marginalised communities from engaging with TOR and theatre in general. The Community Engagement Officer will help to bridge that gap, encouraging writers to submit to the programme. Each script that comes through the Community Engagement Officer’s will be clearly noted to the script readers.
