Telford, Shropshire
Job description

Our local groups provide high quality services to our MS community, offering local grants or funding research by donating to our national programmes. Our Finance Volunteers manage the local group’s finances to make sure that funds are spent according to our charitable objectives.



We’re the MS Society – a community of people living with MS, scientists, campaigners, listeners, organisers, ambassadors and fundraisers. Our volunteers are a key part of achieving our goals and their support is vital. Join us.

About this opportunity
We are looking to recruit a Finance Volunteer for our Telford and District Group. As a Finance Volunteer, you would be joining a coordinating team of volunteers to plan and deliver services and activities to support people locally.

You will maintain and approve income and expenditure records and explain financial information clearly to other group members. You would ensure our financial requirements and policies are followed, and that money is spent in a cost effective manner.

We are a small but very active local group led by an enthusiastic team of volunteers. We are currently looking for a new Finance Volunteer to support the group in managing it's accounts. You will volunteer closely with the Group Coordinator.

The role can be flexible to fit in with your life and a lot of the work can be done from home. The volunteer team currently meet once a month on a Tuesday afternoon for 2 hours.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience with a large charity, develop your existing skills and learn new ones. We need you to get involved and help make positive changes to the lives of people affected by MS.

About you
You’ll have an interest in the MS Society and the work that we do, as well as the enthusiasm to represent both us and our values locally. You will understand the needs of people affected by MS in your area and be sympathetic to the needs and motivations of volunteers. You’ll be comfortable with figures, preferably with an accounting or business background.

Previous financial experience is desirable and ideally we are looking for someone who lives within the Telford & Wrekin area.
