LJAG is recruiting a Treasurer!

Want to get involved in the work of the Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG) as our Treasurer? 

About us

Loughborough Junction Action Group (LJAG) is a social action group which came into existence in 2008, established and run by local people. We run projects which bring people together, reduce isolation and increase understanding and trust. They include a community café, community farm with an informal social prescribing support programme, adventure playground and arts and craft.  Our goal is to make Loughborough Junction a great place to live and work.

More about us!

Apart from the café, which generates its income and delivers social impact through funded programmes, we are largely grant dependent. We are working on a strategy to generate a higher level of self-funding from our projects and activities; streamlining and improving our processes and systems, including the newly implemented Xero system; and more.  We also have a new book-keeper who is working with us to transform our financial processes.

Why we need you!

There is more to be done, and we want a passionate Treasurer with a financial qualification or experience and a passion for helping a local community charity to join the board.  

The Treasurer will provide oversight of the charity’s financial management to include:

    • contributing to plans to build funded and earned income to assure our viability and sustainability
    • helping fellow board members become more  aware of their financial obligations and take a lead in interpreting financial data to them
    • reporting the financial position at board meetings (balance sheet, cash flow, etc)
    • helping the project teams to produce an annual budget and propose its adoption
    • work with the book-keeper to ensure financial procedures and controls are in place
    • help us to appraise the financial viability of plans, proposals and feasibility studies
    • Work with the team to prepare the annual financial report, liaise with auditors/ independent examiner and ensure sign off from the board
    • act as a signatory on payments and 
    • help us drive our work forward.
