VOCAL is the Voice of Carers Across Lothian, a dynamic and enterprising charity which provides support to over 10,000 unpaid family carers each year in Edinburgh and Midlothian.

We are recruiting for a Treasurer to support our team of six trustees with the competent stewardship of VOCAL’s finances. This role will be undertaken in a part-time paid capacity whilst also serving as a voluntary, unpaid trustee of the charity. Remuneration will be up to £300 pcm.

The Treasurer monitors the financial management of the charity and reports to the Board on budget projections, cash-flow forecasting, income and expenditure accounts and the overarching strategic management of VOCAL’s financial resources.

The Treasurer also acts as a counter signatory for the Board for applications and financial transactions, liaises with auditors and ensures compliance with relevant regulators in a timely fashion.

We are seeking an experienced, qualified accountant with knowledge of charity finance, some familiarity with accountancy software (eg. SAGE) and the ability to communicate financial information.
