Job description

Would you like to join the board of a trusted and well-respected talking therapy charity and training organisation dedicated to advancing mental health and wellbeing for the benefit of society and everyone?

About us

Founded over 50 years ago WPF Therapy has much to be proud of in its history, having a reputation built on delivering high quality psychotherapy made accessible to thousands of clients through affordable pricing and inclusive practice.

We believe that Psychodynamic Psychotherapy helps people lead more fulfilling lives and we’re here to make it inclusive and affordable.  Our mission is to advance mental health and wellbeing for the benefit of society and everyone.

Recruiting a Treasurer

The Treasurer role is pivotal to supporting the senior team and the Board, in the development of a strong financial strategy and robust processes.

Day to day leadership and management is delegated to the Executive Team, with the Treasurer working in partnership with the Chief Executive and Executive Team, in a strategic advisory capacity.

We are seeking a hands-on Treasurer and Finance Committee Chair who is motivated to help us refresh our trading model. Probably a qualified accountant (or equivalent experience), you will be able to move easily from big picture to grasping the detail, and you will have ambitions for how we can secure our position, post pandemic, as a charity and social enterprise that makes a real difference to many people.

You may have experience of leading the finance agenda for an SME or a discrete part of a large commercial organisation.  Experience of charity sector finance is desirable, though not essential, nor is previous trustee experience.  Candidates should have excellent financial analysis skills and the ability to communicate clearly.

You will be working with a group of highly skilled and motivated Trustees and have real opportunities to shape our future. If you are keen to volunteer your time to make an impact in the mental health sector, we would be delighted to hear from you.
