Greyhound Gap is a small independent charity set up in 2006 to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome greyhounds and lurchers. the objective of the rescue is to promote the humane treatment of animals particularly greyhounds and lurchers. Also to provide appropriate care, treatment and security for those dogs who are in need by reason of sickness, maltreatment,poor circumstances or ill usage.

We have a kennels just north of Stoke on Trent where we have capacity to keep 60 dogs. Six people are employed at the site looking after the animals and this includes the General Manager who is also the founder of Greyhound Gap. There are three Trustees who administer the charity, two are voluntary and unpaid, the other is the founder/general manager.

The Treasurer is now retiring and we need someone to take over this role. At the moment, there is no specific Job Description as we would wish to work with the new Treasurer to decide the best way to organise the finances of the charity going forward. This could be with outsourcing/voluntary help. However, it is envisaged that the Treasurer will have accountability for quarterly management accounts that have to be presented to the bank and also the end of year accounts. There will also be a requirement to deal with VAT, Gift Aid and payments for major expenses.

We are looking for someone with experience in putting together management/financial accounts with an attention to detail. It is absolutely essential that the person has a commitment to and a passion for the welfare of dogs. It would also be preferable if the person lived within an hours drive of Stoke on Trent.

In the first instance, please can you call Rose Marie Edwards on 01256 771819 for an informal discussion about the role.
