What are we looking for?

The ideal candidate will have a background and qualification in financial management/accounting and an appreciation of the constraints that apply to a small charity.

What difference will you make?

The field of complementary therapy is increasingly recognised particularly in the field of preventive medicine. The IFA were the first professional body established to represent the rapidly growing aromatherapy industry and are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority. We pioneered aromatherapy in the NHS but there is still some way to go before it is recognised mainstream and we carry on with the same pioneering spirit in all our activities. Volunteering can be immensely rewarding, providing both expected and unexpected opportunities for personal development and while you bring your skills and energy to the running of the charity, you will also find you are gaining new experience and knowledge. By helping us you will you make a key contribution to our continued growth and success as well as to the field itself.
