Volunteer Bookkeeper: 

CMVic is looking for a VOLUNTEER Bookkeeper to work for a couple of hours each Thursday, from our office in Flinders Lane, Melbourne. This is a part-time role, (2-3 hours per week) and will involve the following responsibilities:

  • Recording all income (including PAYPAL, direct credit and other transactions);
  • Recording all expenditure (especially payments to our contractors and superannuation for eligible contractors);
  • Accounting for GST collected and paid and preparing quarterly BAS Statements;
  • Using Job Accounting to track the profitability of particular events or other endeavours;
  • Generating monthly financial reports for the CMV Board.

The role doesn't require a qualified Accountant or even a qualified Bookkeeper, merely someone who enjoys working with figures. We would prefer you to have some experience with the MYOB small business accounting package – we use MYOB Accounts Right - but MYOB operates very intuitively and is very easy for non-accountants to pick up.

Extensive training will be provided to ensure a seamless transition into the role.

If you would like to discuss any aspect of the role, please contact Deb Carveth or John Howard on 9662 1162. Please apply to by 15 August 2017.
