Paid staff is more complex than paid contractor, so I'd recommend starting with a contractor for specific jobs rather than a full-time employee, until we've got things set up better.

OTW Treasurers have actually had pretty good continuity for an OTW role - 3 in 8 years until this recent mess. That's better than any other role in the Org apart from Journal editor, I think. And two of them were pretty well qualified for the job, one with a day job as a CPA.

I think the normal checking is less of an issue, it's more having someone on call to review and to advise on the complex stuff. So get an auditor first, to do the annual audit before the annual report, and then an accountant to help advise, while building up a group of internal people who can help review things - the key thing is having three or four people double-checking different aspects, and a board who review the right stuff. Replacing a single point of failure volunteer Treasurer with a single point of failure paid Accountant is not actually that much of an improvement.

So I think it will eventually be a good idea, as the org grows, but the way you've worded it wouldn't be my first priority.
