Extinction Rebellion's Finance team is a small, friendly crew, looking after XRUK's annual revenues of c£1-2m per year, around 70% of which is from small one off or regular donations from the UK public; the remainder are larger donations from individuals and foundations which are likely to be given for a specific project or purpose. Our current chartered accountant is standing down after 16 months in the role and a replacement is urgently required - a full and detailed handover will be provided. The current incumbent leaves the team having established simple and robust procedures. This role is supported by a part time bookkeeper who has been in role for around 2 years. This volunteer role requires around 10-15 hours a week, is flexible and can be performed from home. You would be joining a team of 8-10 volunteers. Despite XRUK's purpose (to highlight the climate and ecological emergency and demand action via nonviolent civil disobedience) this role is all about supporting the movement with good advice and lawful financial and company governance. If sitting in the road is not for you, but you care for the futures of your children and grandchildren then this role might be ideal for you! Someone once said "Accountants will save the world" - this volunteer role might just be one of the pieces in the jigsaw to do that!
