An increasing number of professionals are lending their finance skills to a range of charities and not-for-profit organisations through the ICAEW website www.icaewvolunteers.com.
Celebrating its first anniversary recently, the site was set up to help more charities access their members. It is also celebrating the fact that it is now the number one website for financial volunteering roles.
It is essential that charity boards can find the skilled finance volunteers they need in order to ensure they can adhere to compliance regulations, especially in the area of accounting.
As well as the charities themselves, the volunteers found the experience very rewarding too, helping charities to achieve their goals and prosper.
The website has had around 36,000 visits so far, with over 900 roles having been posted so far. The ICAEW also confirmed 66 successful matches between volunteers and other not-for-profit organisations in April.
