ARE YOU A QUALIFIED, EXPERIENCED, ACCOUNTANT?  Would you like to join our team

Silverfit is an exciting charity led by older people for older people.

We aim to promote healthier ageing and combat social isolation, ensuring previously inactive people are more active, feel more confident and enjoy life as they age. Silverfit targets the over 45s, in particular those who are inactive, according to Government guidelines.

We began in 2013 with one session per week and currently offer sessions in 18 venues across 8 London boroughs. Sessions begin with a social get-together facilitated by a volunteer Silverfit Ambassador, followed by a choice of activities led by qualified instructors, then it's back to having fun and socialising.

We have a treasurer, a book-keeper and a firm of accountants who submit our annual accounts, but we need a Trustee who is a qualified accountant, to oversee our rapidly expanding systems of funding,  detailing the grant expenditure and overseeing financial affairs.

 

The Silverfit Board, of five Trustees meets one evening in Vauxhall every 2-3 months, although with the current rate of growth, it may be 1-2 monthly over the next few months.
