We are looking for a Treasurer who will keep control of our expenditure, invoicing etc and prepare information for accounts to be compiled.
Only residents of Brookfield can become council members but we can co-opt someone from the local area with the right skills. The treasurer attends monthly council meetings held (normally) in the village hall in Brookfield. He/she will report on expenditure and anything else that has an impact on our finances (rates, insurance etc). Other work can be done mainly on-line - by sending out invoices, paying bills and keeping the books.
It is essential that the person has bookkeeping experience and is familiar with on-line banking. He/she must be available for monthly evening meetings at Brookfield Village Hall.
Ideally the person should be able to prepare accounts for audit but this is not essential.
We have been without a treasurer for some while and the secretary is overburdened with two jobs! All our funds come from fundraising and we need to manage our money carefully. He/she will be part of a small team of committed council members.
Most council members also help with events and social functions but although this can be fun it is not essential. Keeping the money side working smoothly will be much appreciated.
