About Us

PACT (Parents and Children Together) helps hundreds of families every year through outstanding adoption and award-winning therapeutic support and inspirational community projects across London and the south of England.  We are one of the UK’s leading independent adoption agencies. Our mission is to provide adoption and community services to vulnerable children, women and families.

The role

Our Board of Trustees voluntarily govern the charity’s activities and we are looking for a new Trustee to join our Board and to take on the role of Treasurer.

Day to day responsibility for financial operations and control is in the hands of the Head of Finance.   The Treasurer will work with fellow Trustees and our Executive Team to develop financial strategies to support our ambitious plans and provides oversight of the charity’s finances and financial operations so as to provide reassurance to the Board on the charity’s short and long-term viability.

The Trustee Treasurer is also responsible for ensuring that the charity fulfils its duties and responsibilities for its proper financial governance and to give advice and guidance when needed to the Head of Finance.

As our Head Office is in Reading ideally you will be based in the Thames Valley and will be able to commit an average of 2-3 days per month of your time.  It is a voluntary role although travel expenses may be claimed.
