Avon Valley Environmental Society Inc

Avon Valley Environmental Society (AVES) is a voice for the environment. Our vision is to progress the cultural, economic and social development of the Avon Valley in an environmentally sustainable manner. We understand many people want to help the environment, but not everyone is in a position to be hands on. You can help behind the scenes by assisting to prepare the monthly finance report, occasionally acquit grants and help prepare quarterly GST return.

This is a great opportunity to become part of a successful community group who help improve the environment and meet like minded people.

You will need a knowledge of Bookkeeping, Excel and GST for this role together with your own computer. The current Treasurer is very kindly offering to help the successful applicant smoothly transition into this role so you can rest assured you will be well supported.

This position would be well suited to someone who is keen to work flexible hours (2-3hrs p/m) from home. You MUST attend our monthly meeting in person which take place on the 3rd Friday of each month at midday in NORTHAM.

We encourage applications from diverse people of all ages, cultures, genders and abilities.
