Rottingdean Whiteway Centre has rooms for hire and for nearly 50 years has been a meeting place for local groups as well as running organised adult education courses on various subjects. Over thirty-four courses are available during three terms a year. Additionally the pre-school meet in the Youth Hall four days a week. In normal times the building is a hive of activity and we have 3 part time caretakers who clean and maintain the building. 

The role is voluntary and unpaid. The Treasurer's duties would include:

  1.  Ensuring that clear records are kept and that effective procedures are in place,
  2.  Monitoring and report on the financial health of the organisation and
  3.  Production of necessary financial reports and accounts and returns.

Attendance at ten management committee meetings per year is expected, subject to emergencies of course. We currently meet the first Thursday evening of the month on zoom.


Skills

  • Good written communication skills.
  • Reasonable IT proficiency, particularly with word-processing and spreadsheet.
  • Ability to forward plan, prioritise and meet deadlines.
  • Good organisational skills.
  • Ability to work well with others, in particular, the members of the Centre’s management committee.

Benefits

  • Doing something very interesting and rewarding for the benefit of the local community.
  • Working with the other like-minded and supportive members of the management committee.
  • Working in a centre with an excellent reputation for the quality of its adult education provision.

Practical Considerations

The role is ideal for a person who can give some time to the community. Ideally, they should live locally to or within a few miles of Rottingdean. The Centre is 2 minutes’ walk from the No 2 bus route and 5 minutes’ walk from routes 12, 14 and 27.
