The Vine Trust is an international, interdenominational Christian charity with a passion to connect people to some of the poorest communities in South America and East Africa to change lives. Through our short term volunteering programmes, we partner with local organisations to help build their capacity as they work at grassroots level.
Currently our volunteers support the delivery of a health service on the Peruvian Amazon, build homes for orphan and abandoned children in Tanzania and support residential centres for Street Children across Peru through our educational expeditions and maintenance programmes. Later this year, our first volunteer medical trip will travel to Lake Victoria, Tanzania.
As a Trust, we have annual revenue of approx £1.5m, which comprises of donations from individuals, corporates and trusts, volunteer trip income, income from fund-raising events and gift aid. Using Finance Coordinator and Excel software, detailed management accounts and cash flows are prepared each month.
In 2015, we will send in the region of 400 volunteers overseas. A quality volunteer trip and office administration function ensures all volunteers have a positive experience while in Peru or Tanzania.
This post requires a motivated person, with a passion for the poor, an eye for detail and the ability to multitask in a fast-moving team environment.
You will be a self-starter with book-keeping and spreadsheet experience along with general office admin ability. A can-do attitude, along with a clear and enthusiastic endorsement of the Trust’s ethos, is essential.
