The Irish Ladies Golf Union is seeking to fill the voluntary role of Finance Director on the Board.  The Finance Director provides direction and guidance to the Board in relation to financial matters and has oversight of the financial affairs of the Union.   She is a director of the Board and is the Chairman of the Audit and Risk Committee.  She is a fully participating member of the Board and as such will play a key role in defining policy and direction of the Union.  

The Transition Board of Golf Ireland was recently established following the historic approval of the Golf Ireland proposal by golf clubs in January. An overwhelming 94% of the GUI ballot and 100% of the ILGU vote signalled a new beginning for the sport across Ireland and thus it is an exciting time to be involved in the leadership of the Union.

Agree and review external audit strategies and procedures and ensure compliance with legislation and current best practice
Confirm and action the findings of external audits

Within this framework the Chief Executive is the accounting officer for the Union and is responsible for the use and control of Union resources in accordance with budgets, plans and the terms of reference approved by the Board.

Appropriate Professional/Business qualification 
A good working knowledge of financial affairs of a medium size voluntary organisation.
