Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust is a community-led organisation, responsible for the running of the historic Burgh Halls in the heart of Maryhill. The Trust (MBHT) was established in 2004 to bring the Halls back into use, and since the 2012 re-opening we have yet again become established in the Maryhill community. Besides activities we put on, often exploring the history and heritage of Maryhill, the Halls also include a café, a nursery, several office spaces with a variety of tenants, and venue spaces that are regularly used for rehearsals, conferences, and more. Through the Trust’s activities, there has been a resurgence of interest in Maryhill’s cultural, social and industrial heritage.
The Trust is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. It is managed and led by a voluntary community-based board of directors and currently employs two members of staff. We are currently looking for a volunteer treasurer for our Board of Trustees, who guide the future of Maryhill Burgh Halls.
The Treasurer acts as Chair of the Finance sub-committee and holds several responsibilities:
Ensuring that financial procedures are adhered to
Overseeing financial reporting and advise on appropriate presentation
Overseeing (and where necessary, produce) budgets
Advising on and leading any review of financial procedures
Liaising with professional advisors, the bookkeeper, and relevant staff
Ensuring the audit is undertaken, accounts are prepared at the appropriate time and lodged with OSCR at the required time
Hours for the role are variable, at about 12 hours a quarter. Besides this, there will also be time spent going to and preparing for meetings, of which there are eight per year.
