Aberdeen Mela-One World Day (OWD) will return in 2022. Aberdeen’s biggest celebration of cultural diversity across the North East of Scotland. Food, music, dance and children’s activities will bring Westburn Park to life this August in an all-encompassing festival of multiculturalism.
We are looking for a volunteer Treasurer/Bookkeeper to assist our steering group in making the MELA a reality in 2022.
This is an exciting opportunity to be closely involved with one of the most important expressions of the cultural diversity of north-east Scotland.
We need you to provide the steering group with financial information and forecasts to enable the best decisions to be made. This opportunity would suit someone with a background in accountancy or book-keeping.
Familiarity with Bank of Scotland account management software would be an advantage but training will be provided.
We anticipate this being a commitment of about 2 hours per week. Part of that would be reporting to the steering group in person or via Zoom. This would sometimes be in an evening.
The period of time for the opportunity would be from the present to the end of September. The Mela itself takes place in August and we would ask the volunteer to assist in preparing reports from the event itself.
A fantastic and exciting opportunity to assist in a great, major event in Aberdeen. All help makes a real difference for people and communities and is greatly appreciated.
