I manage the payroll and book keeping of a very small charity. They want to start paying one of their volunteers rather than lose her to paid employment elsewhere. It would be part time hours and less than the tax & NI threshold so just wondering the best way to go about it. She is not sure how many hours she will have free to begin with so wondering if a zero hours contract might be appropriate to start with. Also wondering if we need to do anything to manage the fact that the post will not have been advertised outside the charity or is it ok to just take someone on that you know?
Thank you for your attention, any advice gratefully recieved.
