The South East Integration Network (SEIN) is an active network of community groups and organisations which work across the south east of Glasgow providing services & activities which celebrate diversity & support community integration.
Our vision is to foster a positive, cohesive community, free from discrimination and racism in which people from all backgrounds and cultures are valued and equally able to participate in the community.
We’re looking for someone to join our Board of Trustees as Treasurer. The Treasurer is responsible for ensuring that all financial transactions are recorded accurately and will present a financial report at each board meeting.
As Treasurer, you will also be a board member; helping shape the direction of the network – and supporting SEIN to achieve its aims.
Availability & Time Commitment
We expect the tasks listed below to take no more than 4 hours per month, except for times when funding applications are being completed and at the end-of-year reporting times for grants, which may take a bit more time.
This includes attending Board meetings, which take place every month, lasting roughly 1.5hours. These usually take place Mon-Fri – either during the day or the evening, depending on availability. When meeting in-person, these are held at the SEIN office in Govanhill, Glasgow. Currently they are being held on Zoom (if continuing to meet online would make this role more possible for you, this will be an option going forwards).
Time commitment is a big question for most people when thinking about joining a board. We hope that the time you give to SEIN will be rewarding and beneficial to you, however, we will do our best to make sure the role can work around your life, work and other commitments.
