At WYCAS we are often asked about potential finance opportunities both paid and voluntary from individuals searching for, or organisations looking to fill relevant posts and roles.
We will update this page with requests we receive for volunteering and finance work opportunities within voluntary and community sector organisations across West Yorkshire.
Please note, in listing opportunities, we are not endorsing either the vacancy or entity offering services however we want to help support our clients wherever we can and hence are offering this promotion opportunity.
To submit your call out for trustees, volunteers and finance workers please contact us with further details.
