Would you like to help with the responsibility of running a lively, local museum and have an enjoyable and rewarding experience?
You should have had some life experience and be interested in heritage and community based activities.
To support our growth and development, the Board would like to appoint a Treasurer to oversee the financial control of Hornsea Museum.
With an annual turnover of around £40,000 and assets of approximately £440,000, she or he will be responsible for all aspects of the Museum accounts: budgets, payments, banking, insurance, providing regular summaries to Trustees, making returns to Companies House and the Charity Commission, and preparing the annual accounts. Day to day book keeping and cash handling are managed by finance team volunteers.
We are looking for someone with experience of accounting practice who can commit up to one day per week, plus email correspondence and quarterly Board meetings. The Treasurer is a full member of the Board with exciting opportunities to shape the future direction and development of the Museum.
Hornsea Museum comprises a Grade 2 listed farmhouse, plus several cottages and outbuildings at the centre of Hornsea. These house 17,000 objects, most from 1830 onwards, and the Hornsea Pottery collection of over 6,000 pieces.
To apply or for an informal discussion, please contact the Chair of the Hornsea Museum Board, Nial Adams, at Nial.Adams@eastriding.gov.uk.
