About the role

The Treasurer role is suitable for an accountant with senior manager, director, partner or Chief Financial Officer experience.

The Treasurer has responsibility for the financial management of the organisation, and must make sure those payments due to, or by, the organisation, are paid, that the financial records are kept correctly, and that the organisation is working within an agreed financial plan.

As a First Step Board however, the group as a whole must share responsibility and decision-making and it will therefore be an important part of the Treasurer’s role to ensure that other Board members understand the information that is being presented and the implications of this information.

The Treasurer must attend monthly board meetings (see below), bimonthly Finance and Risk Subcommittee meetings (see below) and fulfil all obligations listed below.

About the organisation

Organisation Name : The First Step Program

First Step is a not-for-profit mental health, addiction and legal services hub in St Kilda. In operation since 2000, First Step now has 2,500 patients, 26 staff, revenue over $2M and a strong reputation for outpatient, whole-of-person care for the most vulnerable Victorians. Situated at 42 Carlisle St, First Step provides a very welcoming environment, for many a “home away from home”, and believes that everybody deserves every chance to turn their lives around.

First Step is looked to by the health and community sectors as a leader in multi-disciplinary care across mental ill-health, addiction and other related complications such as homelessness and social isolation.

First Step’s uniquely skilled workforce (GPs, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health nurses, care coordinators, group therapist, drug and alcohol therapist and more) includes the only criminal and family violence law program embedded within a health practice in the entire country. At First Step we believe that everybody deserves every chance to turn their lives around, and we provide a free, compassionate and excellent service as we strive for that goal.
