Treasurer assistant or treasured - please help us
8 Oct 2023
Role Title: Treasurer Assistant for 2023-24 (aka help Maria out!) - with the hope of helping more in the following season  
Who we need: Someone who has a natural flair for numbers (geeks are cool admit it), is annoyingly organised and is passionate about giving back to the club via a small number of hours per month! No you don't necessarily need to be an accountant, just have a reasonable brain for numbers. Simples!  
What would you need to be willing to help with:  
- process member, coach & umpire expense claims via Barclays banking app once a month  
- check, process & pay invoices (only approximately 5/6 a month)  
- learn how to use QuickBooks accounts software (its easy Maria promises!) - this helps us keep track of bank transactions and reports a lovely income/expenditure report for us each month  
- budget certain areas of expenditure  
- help man the treasurer email inbox and respond to any member/player ad-hoc queries (usually this is more at the start of the season at a low level)  
- attend monthly committee exec meetings and talk through how the club finances are tracking (you will shadow Maria on this don't worry!)  
- help nag & remind people to pay  
- help determine any fee increases each season  
- suggest better ways of doing things  
How do I find out more: If you are now squirming around in your chair with excitement after reading the above (ok maybe not squirming...), and wish to help, please give Maria a shout maria@hiddentalents.org.uk.
