    Proper Job Resource Centre

Proper Job is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. It is a locally rooted response to a global issue; that of wasted resources and the profound disconnect between what we buy and what we throw away. It aims to reclaim and retain these wasted resources on behalf of its community, challenging and changing perceptions in the process. By doing so, it also demonstrates to the world the level of change that’s possible to effect from a grassroots level.

Proper Job’s charitable objects are described as follows:

For the public benefit, the protection and preservation of the environment in particular, but not exclusively by (a) the promotion of waste reduction, re-use reclamation, recycling, use of recycled products and the use of surplus (b) advancing the education of the public about all aspects of waste generation, waste management and waste recycling, in the United Kingdom.

THE ROLE

We’re seeking a new Treasurer to work alongside the Chair and Finance Manager to provide oversight of the organisation’s finances and ensure sound financial management.

We’re looking for someone who has financial management or accountancy experience, who shares our ethos and can work effectively and make decisions as part of a team.

Whether you are an experienced trustee or wanting to take your first step at Board level, if you feel that you can meet these challenges, we’d like to hear from you.
