Volunteer Book Keeper/Treasurer

  • VO97503


The Pen-y-Coe Press is a vintage style shop that sells stationery, art materials and print services. It is run by volunteers and helps raise funds for the charity.

This volunteer role can be working from home or Pen-y-Coe Press, Penicuik EH26 8L

The Treasurer has to ensure proper records are kept of all income and expenditure. Today, these records are maintained in an excel spreadsheet. However, we hope a new Treasurer could bring knowledge and experience to implement a standard accounting package.

Tasks include bank account reconciliation; managing and paying suppliers, usually by internet banking; and ensuring cash is banked. Also, the provision of monthly and annual financial reports.

In addition, you will be part of the Pen-y-Coe Press leadership team and support the other Pen-y-Coe Press volunteers to operate with strong financial policies and procedures.

It is planned to make the Pen-y-Coe Press shop a trading subsidiary of the charity, with its own board, in which case you would become a board member.
