THE charity which runs Winchester Heritage Open Days is searching for trustees to join the board.

Hampshire History Trust is looking for people to join its supportive and welcoming board, in particular those with finance experience and an interest in the role of treasurer.

The role of treasurer would involve monitoring the financial standing of the charity, overseeing financial risk-management practices, cash-flow, income streams, expenses and management of financial resources. Key skills include: financial qualifications/experience, knowledge of the Charities Statement of Recommended Practice, good IT skills, analytical skills, ability to communicate and explain financial information to others. Specific knowledge of charity finance, law and insurance is a bonus.

The trust would also like to hear from other individuals with different skill sets who are interested in exploring future board level roles with the trust.

Closing date for applications is December 20.
