Organisation : Candlebark Community Nursery

Location : Melbourne ( Mooroolbark)

Time required : Maximum an hour a week, 1.5 hour committee meeting every two months

Duration of project : Ongoing

Skill area : Finance & Accounting

Sector : Conservation & Environment

Application closing date : 22 Sep, 2022

About the role

Part of this role relates to our staff. Our nursery employs four people: two part-time and two casual employees operating under the Nursery or the Clerks award. This includes an office admin person who deals with the day-to-day operations of receiving, recording and proposing bills for payment to the signatories (of which two are required), issuing receipts, and entering details into MYOB.

As treasurer, your responsibilities would include:

  • Reconciling bank accounts weekly
  • Overseeing the keeping records in MYOB of all payments and receipts, including rental and wage payments
  • Calculation and submission of quarterly BAS payments (GST and superannuation guarantee amounts)
  • Production of relevant financial reports annually (via MYOB) i.e. profit and loss, balance sheets, transaction histories, end of year reports
  • Attend Committee meetings (every second month on Sunday afternoons, approx 1.5 hours) as well as annual AGM

Many responsibilities can be done remotely, although initial attendance at the nursery to get settled into the role would be an advantage. Attendance in person at Committee meetings would be required.

An interest in gardening or revegetation would be a bonus!

About the organisation

Organisation name : Candlebark Community Nursery

Since 1994, Candlebark Community Nursery has been dedicated to helping local people improve the natural environment. We focus on propagating and growing an extensive range of indigenous flora, from groundcovers and medium-sized understorey plants to huge eucalyptus trees.

We supply plants for revegetation projects by councils, Landcare groups etc, which help preserve local species of flora and fauna. Grown from local seed or cuttings, these plants have evolved to suit our climate over millions of years.

We also sell low-cost native plants to the public, so customers can grow indigenous plants in their own gardens, increasing habitat for wildlife and maintaining biodiversity.

Please email me if you are interested and I can respond with more information. I look forward to hearing from you!
