Volunteer: Grove Day Center – Honorary Treasurer

Grove Day Centre for the Elderly is a charity which has been running for 27 years. We meet twice weekly on a Tuesday and Thursday in a purpose built centre. We provide day care and social activities for elderly people, along with a freshly cooked 2 course lunch.

We require a person to take control of the accounts for this small charity, annual turnover approximately £30-£35K. This voluntary role involves inputting payroll details for 5 members of staff onto the HMRC PAYE website to produce monthly payslips, raising cheques or bank payments as appropriate for these. Paying other ad-hoc bills by cheque. Maintaining monthly receipts and expenses spreadsheet for presentation at bi-monthly management committee meetings. Keeping records to back this up and arranging the annual independent examination of the accounts. It is estimated that the duties will take around 7 hours per month.

Involvement in the life of the centre is encouraged, so that figures can be discussed and gathered with the Organiser/Manger during the month. It is expected that someone local to Grove would therefore be best placed to apply for this role. Attendance at the bi-monthly management meetings at the centre in Grove, in the evening, is important.

Applicants should have relevant accounts experience and be able to furnish 2 recent job referees. Out of pocket expenses will be paid.
