Thank you for your interest in The Seafarers’ Charity, the leader in maritime welfare grant-making. For over 106 years we have led the way in supporting those who work at sea.

Our immediate need is for a trustee who will, at the 2025 AGM, assume the role of Chair of our Finance & Audit Committee. This will allow a period to shadow the incumbent sub-committee Chair and will give you ample time to understand the Charity's finances.

The role of the Finance & Audit Committee Chair is to maintain our ability to scrutinize, manage, report and make effective decisions based on our financial situation. You will work with the Finance Director to present and explain our finances to Trustees. Your background is likely to be as a Chief Finance Officer or Finance Director, holding a recognised financial qualification (e.g. FCA or other similar qualification) who has operated at Board level.
