About the role
The Board of the Fitzroy Learning Network (FLN) is seeking to appoint a new Board member to fill the role of Treasurer. The Treasurer leads the financial oversight of the organisation and is a key member of the Finance, Risk, Audit and Compliance Committee (FRACC).
The Treasurer has oversight of the financial management of FLN, ensuring that FLN is working within regulatory and legal frameworks and an agreed financial plan. As FLN is a small non-profit organisation the Treasurer must be prepared to engage with the CEO and Finance Officer on practical financial management issues.
The Treasurer shares responsibility and decision-making with other members of the Board and it will therefore be an important part of the Treasurer’s role to ensure that other Board members understand financial information that is being presented and the implications of this information.
Established in 1984, Fitzroy Learning Network (FLN) is the heart and soul of Melbourne’s old Fitzroy – a suburb where some of Melbourne’s wealthiest live alongside some of Melbourne’s most disadvantaged. For decades FLN has been a place of refuge for the poor and disadvantaged. Today FLN is where refugees, migrants, asylum seekers and those living on the public housing estates of inner Melbourne find support and where they can learn and connect. FLN provides a welcome, safety, dignity and hope.
Our vision is of a strong, fair inclusive and engaged community. A community where everyone understands and can exercise their rights and responsibilities and where they are able to access the resources, networks and support they need to realise their aspirations. Our role is to provide learning, skills development, practical support and advocacy that increase opportunities for social, cultural and economic participation.
It is an exciting time for FLN. The next couple of years should see the development of new premises and we’re using this time and this opportunity to review how we best serve our community into the future. We’re therefore looking for a Treasurer who will help take these plans and strategy forwards.
