Branch Treasurer

As Treasurer you will be responsible for the management of all funds and accounts for SSAFA locally.

About the role

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a background in accountancy or finance to become part of a committed team supporting the Armed Forces community and their families in your local area.

Responsibilities include maintaining bank accounts, recording the receipt of monies and making authorised payments.

You will work with volunteers throughout your area and oversee their accounts. You will also need to establish links with the finance team based at our national office in London. You will be supported by the local Chairman.

Volunteering with SSAFA is special because you get to see first hand the difference you make to people’s lives. Join us to use your expertise and local knowledge to benefit those in your community, while you develop new skills and meet some inspirational people.

Who we're looking for

As Treasurer you will receive local induction training about SSAFA and have to attend a Treasurer’s course.

We use an online Finance Management System so you will also need to be comfortable using electronic systems for accountancy work.

You do not need a Forces background to volunteer with us. Most importantly, we are looking for volunteers who will listen sensitively and treat people with respect at all times. We also welcome people who have:

  • Willingness to develop new skills and train for new things
  • Basic IT skills
  • Ability to work in a team and support others
  • Ability to work within our Volunteer Policy and Code of Conduct
  • Ability to work confidentially
  • A driver’s licence (for some geographical areas).
