Treasurer (Trustee)

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

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 the 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.

To apply for this vacancy, please submit your CV and a covering letter outlining why you are interested and how you meet the requirements of the role. Applications should be sent to humanresources@wpf.org.uk.  For an informal discussion please contact WPF Therapy’s Chair, via patoboard@wpf.org.uk.

WPF Therapy is committed to the encouragement of equality and diversity among our workforce, with regard to the psychological therapy we provide to the public and in the way we educate and train our students. We are also committed to the elimination of any form of discrimination, including harassment or bullying, on the grounds of gender, marital status, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion and age. Every individual has the right to be treated fairly and with dignity and respect. It is important to us that our Board represents the community we serve, and we are working towards this.  Applications are welcome from anyone who meets our essential criteria.

We want you to have every opportunity to demonstrate your skills, ability and potential; please contact us if you require any assistance or adjustment so that we can help with making the application process work for you.
