We have the following vacancies at the community centre:

This role comprises two critical things: keep the building clean and manage the opening and locking up for some of our centre bookings.

Customer-facing, this person will also be friendly and welcoming, opening up the building for centre users, running through checklists and locking up. Flexibility is key, as we will need help with opening and locking up for ad-hoc bookings, for example one-off birthday parties at the weekend.
This role is required to support running the finances of the charity. Tasks and responsibilities include:
- Undertake bookkeeping duties.
- Weekly reconciliations, check invoice payments have been received. Flag any unpaid invoices.
- Weekly return deposits to hirers e.g. party bookings. Flag to secondary approver.

A voluntary position on our committee to help the trustees meet their financial responsibilities.
As we need someone to review and/or set up our financial controls and processes, it is expected this may involve more hours at the start of the role, then fewer month by month, and more again for end-of-year accounts and budgeting.
The Grange Park Centre is registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) registered with the Charities Commission (1157806), and as such the Trustees help steer the charity towards its goals.
With the construction of the community centre well under way, we are looking for new trustees to join the Grange Park Centre charity to help transition into the next phase. It’s an exciting time after waiting for many years to be finally opening the doors to the new community centre!
Trustees are an essential part to running the charity, each bring different skillsets whether financial, management, education, fund raising, technology or practical skills. We are looking for individuals who can bring these skills to the team to help oversee the building and deliver a number of projects into the community over the next 2-3 years.
We are looking for 2-3 Trustees to help steer the charity as we look to an Autumn opening. You will be required to attend Trustee meetings (2hrs) every quarter, the working group meetings (2hrs)every 6-7 week and the public meeting (1hr) every other month. You’ll be responsible for helping make decisions for the use of the building, guiding the policies and helping ensure the centre engages with the local community and keeping an overview of the financial decisions.
The Charities Commission have produced a helpful guidance document detailing the key duties of all trustees of charities in England and Wales, and what trustees need to do to carry out these duties competently.
