In Cirencester, the group needs an experienced Treasurer initially until 31/12 2024.

What will you be doing?

Local groups across the UK are run by volunteers and offer friendship and support to people living with Parkinson's and their families and friends.

We need a Branch Treasurer to help ensure these funds are spent in the most effective way to support people living with Parkinson's in your community.  As Treasurer you'll manage the finances of the group, making sure they're spent effectively for people affected by Parkinson's.

With a head for numbers, you'll keep track of the funds the group holds, working with staff and volunteers to report on the groups financial activity as required. Experience in accountancy or bookkeeping is required.

You'll build existing connections, and meet new people in your local area, all whilst making a difference to those living with Parkinson's in Cirencester & Stroud

This hard working group meets each month, but many of our volunteers undertake parts of their roles from home - at a time that suits you.
