Join Our Team

We have a vacancy in our team -

Clerk to the Trustees

4 hours per week - Home-Based

Do you have excellent organisational and administrative skills, and also love animals?   RSPCA Shropshire is seeking a new Clerk to the trustees to help support the work of the charity.

 Our ideal Clerk will have a strong track record of developing and maintaining administrative systems, financial record-keeping and providing support to a committee or governing body, including taking minutes.   As Clerk you will organise our monthly trustee meetings and attend to take minutes.  Meetings usually take place on a Wednesday evening, and currently they are held virtually.  You will undertake a range of administrative duties to support the work of the trustees.  In addition you will process payments and maintain accurate financial records.  Each year you will assist with preparations for our annual meeting, and end of year financial audits.  The majority of the work is home-based, although there may be occasional evening meetings held in person and so you will need to be able to travel to venues in Shropshire, if required.

If you think you have the right skills and experience for this role we would love to hear from you. The role profile can be viewed here.

Application forms can be downloaded here, or can be obtained by emailing admin@shropshire.rspca.org.uk.  The closing date for applications is 5pm on Friday 15 July
