We require a team with a broad range of skills and interests to specialise in specific areas. We ensure our staff are fully trained and supported to fulfil their role and to be able to develop themselves on the job. 

Vacancies -Treasurer ( Voluntary Role)

We are looking for a Treasurer is to maintain an overview of the organisation’s affairs, ensure its financial viability and ensure that proper financial records and procedures are maintained.  Proper Job is an established organisation, it is a newly registered charity and as such it is expected that the new Treasurer, along with the other Trustees, will initially need to invest time in supporting the CEO and Board to implement best practice financial processes. For this reason, we are seeking an experienced treasurer or charity professional who has the knowledge and confidence to guide the organisation in this area through this exciting phase of growth and development.  This is an unremunerated role , although reasonable out of pocket expense will be covered.

Donate money

Help us to achieve our potential.

Alternatively, you could donate and help us develop the Proper Job yard. We currently trade out of semi-permanent structures which need constant repair and maintenance.
