IWFS Europe Africa Ltd
IWFS Europe Africa is the Regional Company of the International Wine & Food Society (www.iwfs.org). The Company is a not-for-profit company, limited by guarantee of its members. It provides benefits to its 1,000+ members, organises festivals on their behalf, develops strategy and marketing opportunities, and provides magazines and other relevant publications. The members are spread across 25 branches, who operate autonomously.
The role is entirely voluntary (not even travel expenses to Committee meetings!!!), and anyone taking on this role would need to become a member (either of a specific branch or as an independent). The opportunity is to become involved with a worldwide organisation with 6,000 members having a common interest in "good wine, good food and like-minded company".
The role requires keeping books of account (using Xero), filing accounts and tax returns, reporting to the Committee quarterly, maintaining records for festivals and ensuring compliance with legislation eg VAT, tour operators rules, neither of which currently apply.
The key requirement is for someone who has a love of food and wine and/or would like to broaden their understanding of both, whilst enjoying the Company of those with the same interest, potentially in many parts of the world.
