Treasurer: Carlisle One World Centre

Carlisle One World Centre needs a Treasurer:

Can you help?

Carlisle One World Centre (COWC) is a local charity addressing global issues. We aim to:

  • Raise awareness of the interconnectedness of local and global issues, and how our actions  – as individuals, as communities and as a nation – affect the world
  • Educate people of all ages about the issues facing people in developing countries
  • Support the economically and socially deprived, both locally and globally
  • Campaign for justice throughout the world through a programme of education, awareness-raising and practical activities.
Carlisle  Fairtrade Group and Carlisle  Refugee  Action Group (CRAG)  are within  our remit.
We need a volunteer Treasurer, who will be supported by a bookkeeper, to join the committee of Trustees.  We need someone with:
  • Attention to detail
  • Good level of knowledge of Microsoft Excel including the use of Pivot Tables to create summary reports
  • Knowledge of book-keeping and financial management
  • Good financial analysis skills.
  • Ability to communicate clearly in writing and verbally 

Ideally the Treasurer will also have knowledge and experience of fundraising/finance practice relevant to voluntary and community organisations.
Meetings are about 6 weekly and trustees are expected to support events and activities run by the organisation.  The Treasurer role requires 4-6 hours per month although more time will be required for the preparation of the annual accounts. 
Further information about COWC and a full role description can be found on our website or email our Chairperson Kitty Booth-Clibborn,, if you would like to find out more.
Expressions of interest are invited by email to ideally by the end of July – please include why you are interested in the role and any relevant experience.  We will then make contact with you.”
(Please note that COWC is not the city's Fairtrade shop, Carlisle World Shop, which is legally unrelated to this charity)
