The Chartered Certified Accountants’ Benevolent Fund (CCABF) is a registered UK charity which provides financial support to past and present members of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and their families across the globe – whether they’re working, unemployed or retired.

We are looking to appoint two new trustees to support the continuous development of the Chartered Certified Accountants’ Benevolent Fund. Our mission is to ‘provide timely and appropriate support to members and their families who face hardship or need at any time’.

Main tasks

• To take part in formulating and regularly reviewing the strategic aims of the organisation.
• With other trustees to ensure that the policy and practices of the organisation are in keeping with its aims
• With other trustees to ensure that the organisation functions within the legal and financial requirements of a charitable organisation and strives to achieve best practice

We want to strengthen our board and are looking for applicants with a range of skills and experience, and with knowledge of the wider charity world as well as of the public services, and understanding of the causes and consequences of hardship and need. Experience of the benefits system, debt management, and marketing and communication, including the potential uses of social media, would also be useful.

The positions are unremunerated although reasonable expenses are reimbursed. Meetings are held 4 times a year, usually in London. Applications from non-ACCA members are very welcome.
