Good with numbers?

Can you help? We are looking for a volunteer who is interested in assisting the Regional Treasurer to manage the Regional finances. Drawing on your skills and experience, you’ll help Scouting in South East Scotland be supported positively and sympathetically. You’ll serve a 3-year term which can be extended. You don’t need formal financial qualifications – just a capacity to work effectively with finances.

What’s involved?

You will have several tasks such as:

  • Check that the payments being made are reasonable
  • Make payments through automated banking of transactions that have been approved
  • Chase subs from each district once a year and then pay the total due to SHQ on time

You will have loads of support from Bruce MacDonald, the Regional Treasurer and you will work with leaders and volunteers to support them in providing young people with great opportunities for fun and adventure.

What’s in it for you?

As well as providing a great support to the work of Scouting in the Region, you will make new contacts and develop new skills. If appropriate, we will sponsor you to have additional financial training. As a volunteer all your reasonable expenses will be met.

How do I apply?

Please contact Bruce Macdonald, treasurer@sesscouts.org.uk who will be happy to talk you through the next steps, if you would like an informal chat first.
