Volunteering with ASCEND
Are you looking for a rewarding and challenging volunteer post?
Would you like to work as part of a team helping to make a difference in your community?
ASCEND is currently looking for a Treasurer.
Reporting to the Trustees, the Treasurer will maintain the charity’s accounts, produce annual budgets and report monthly on the financial position. They will also make sure that financial proceedures are followed and apprise the Trustees of any potential threat to ASCENDs financial security as well as ensuring that the charity complies with relevant legislation and the requirements of our funders. We are looking for someone with relevent accounting qualifications and/or experience in financial management, bearing in mind ASCENDs annual turnover of around £300K. Applicants should sympathise with ASCENDs Christian ethos and be willing to dedicate up to one day a week to this task. Although much of the work can be done flexibly from home, the Treasurer will need to visit ASCENDs offices in South Oxhey most weeks. The Treasurer will be supported by a part-time Accounts Administrator.
ASCEND are currently seeking volunteers to support our reception desks at ASCEND and our Step Up project in Oxhey Drive. Duties include: answering phone calls, taking messages, meeting and greeting visitors and clients, making appointments for our team and basic administration duties. We are looking for people who would be flexible in supporting ASCEND staff with a strong sense of compassion, a sense of humour and the ability to work effectively as part of a team.
