Callander Community Development Trust (CCDT) is seeking to upgrade its Finance and Admin system and processes and invites applications for the part-time Role of Finance and Administration Manager. It is anticipated that a fee in the order of £26,000 per annum, pro rata, on a self-employed basis will be available. The postholder will report to the volunteer Board via the Chair.
CCDT is a membership group, set up over 20 years ago to raise funds and take forward projects to benefit Callander. The trust’s directors are all local residents and either represent one of the other community organisations or are individuals with a range of relevant skills and interests. They are all volunteers, interested in making Callander an even better place to live in or visit. ( incallander.co.uk/ccdt_home )
In addition CCDT leads a number of local projects and in addition owns the company that built and operates the Community Hydro Scheme at Loch Lubnaig and distributes money donated by that scheme through the Community Hydro Fund.
The Finance and Administration Manager will, in the first instance, set up and migrate the Trust’s accounts onto QuickBooks or other similar financial management system and thereafter administer the Trust’s record keeping and financial reporting together with acting as Company Secretary. The successful candidate will be supported in their role by the Treasurer and a small Finance sub-committee. The role requires attendance at monthly Board and periodic Finance meetings. It is anticipated that the job will be largely home based, apart from attendance at meetings in Callander and, after the initial set-up phase, to be the equivalent of up to about 1.5 days per week.
Callander Community Development Trust seeks to engage a Community Development Officer. A Place Plan has been developed for Callander; now it needs to be implemented.
Central to the role is the ability to work with the community groups in delivering the priorities of Callander’s Local Place Plan (LPP). The postholder will be contracted to CCDT and will report monthly to the CCDT board and to the Quarterly LPP Steering Group (Callander Partnership) meetings.
