Part Time Controller Position Available

UUCWC is seeking applicants for a Part Time Controller position to be hired to begin likely February/March 2022.

Part Time Controller


The Controller at the Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing (UUCWC) is a new position and is subject to modification. 

The Controller will report to the Senior Minister. However, the Controller will work most closely with UUCWC’s Treasurer and Congregational Administrator, and will support the work of the Finance, Endowment, Fundraising, and Stewardship Committees. In addition, for the next few years, the Controller will also work closely with UUCWC’s Capital Campaign Treasurer.

The position is expected to average 60 hours per month after a training period during which the average number of hours may approximate 20 hours per week.  It should be noted that the average number of hours per week will vary as the first and last week of each month require more than 15 hours, while mid-month hours will be less than 15 hours. The hours per month would also vary as some activities are performed quarterly and some are annual, as detailed below. 

This is expected to be a mostly remote position, with on-site visits required to collect checks to be deposited and file records, as well as occasional meetings.

This is a non-exempt, part time position.
