We’re Banking on You!

13 April 2015

Do you have a head for numbers rather than heights?

Could you manage assets of nearly £700,000 and a turnover of close to £150,000 ?

Could you help steer the trustees to make best use of our resources for the benefit of our members?


Cumbria Scouts are looking for a volunteer with accounting experience who wants to do more in their community. with excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to provide a financial lead to the trustees.

As County Treasurer you would be responsible for providing sound financial administration, support and information to the County Executive Committee. In addition, as a County Trustee you will play your full part in shaping the future of the County. The role also involves providing support to the District Treasurers.

The role is undoubtedly a challenge but you would not be on your own. The County Administrator deals with the day to day financial transactions ensuring that monies are banked and the bills paid. The County Treasurer works as part of a team that manages the county and you would have the support of the wider county, regional and national teams as well. There is plenty of training available so being new to Scouting is no bar.

So why not make a difference to the young people of Cumbria?
