Save By The Bell is a project that encourages children and young people to develop a savings habit. We run weekly collections in participating primary schools across Dundee, where pupils can deposit money into their savings account. Our trained primary 6/7 pupils act as 'tellers' and are supervised by adult volunteers. We need more adult volunteers to support and monitor our pupils during these collections, helping them to develop their cash handling and numeracy skills. There are positions available in various schools and collections usually last no more than one hour. All volunteers will be required to commit to attending one collection per week and to undergo a Disclosure Scotland check. Support and training will be provided by Save By The Bell staff.

The Supervisory Committee reports directly to the members, rather as an audit committee, and ensures that the credit union operates within the law, its own policies and rules, and in the best interests of members. Supervisory Committee members meet regularly, and each one attends Board meetings in rotation to observe the conduct of business. The overall role is to monitor the operation of the credit union, by internal audit, sampling of member accounts, verifying the credit union accounts and related activities. Supervisory Committee members need to become familiar with the business and policies of the credit union, as well as relevant legislation. The positions require a combination of relevant professional skills and experience, common sense, dedication, integrity and wisdom and a commitment to serving the local community and sympathy with the aims of the credit union.

Scotland’s Gardens Scheme in Aberdeen is looking for a new Treasurer to become a part of our district team. The national charity has divided Scotland into 23 districts, each with their own team of volunteers, led by a District Organiser. The team support local garden owners to open their gardens to the public, charging an admission price and selling plants and refreshments to raise money for a charity of their choice. Our District Treasurer is responsible for the financial management of the district and works closely with the District Organiser and Garden Owners. The Treasurer receives monies from garden openings and pays the money to the charities that the gardens support. They are responsible for district accounts and balance the district’s bank statement. Scotland’s Gardens has a very easy to use database system for this role and provides letter templates, guidance, full training and ongoing support.
