Job Description

Southgate District Scout Council supervises the provision of scouting for The Scout association in Southgate North London. Within the district are a number of independent charities, scout groups, that are supervised by the Scout Council. Each group is required to have an independent examination annually of its accounting records. The role is not onerous (I carry it out for some outside the district but am barred by conflict rules from acting within the district). 

The role would suit an accountant familiar with independent examination requirements or in public practice willing to learn the (fairly easy) review process. 

Sadly the groups will not have resources to pay anything other than a nominal "thank you" fee or gift and oftentimes not even that. However, the groups deliver a vital service to local children and they will be grateful for any help.

The work is flexible and although there are deadlines these are not too onerous.

I am an accountant in practice myself and willing to assist with process.
