A Trustee/Hon.Treasurer to maintain an overview of the financial affairs and to prepare for annual audits. We need accountant level support, especially to drive through the transition to more modern software and systems integrated with our growing café, retail and membership/volunteer base. We are a very small charity with minimal staff but loyal volunteers - who ably manage day to day transactions and management, but need help to go ‘cloudwards’. 4 trustee meetings per year, but more time likely to be needed to effect the change."
