The Finance Manager will be responsible for ensuring the effective and efficient management of the organisation’s finance, accounting and contract management systems in line with the requirements of the Board, Company and Charity law and other relevant legislation.


The successful candidate will have:


  • Previous experience of working at a senior level in an organisation with a turnover of £1million plus, with specific responsibility for financial management and reporting;


  • Experience of financial planning, forecasting and modelling, with the flexibility and ability to thrive in an ever-changing environment;


  • Knowledge and understanding of computer-based accounting systems, SORP and Charity/Company law;


  • Excellent oral and written communication skills, including the ability to disseminate information in a clear way to non-financial colleagues and trustees.


As well as having the ability to lead and develop the team through a positive and respectful approach, the successful candidate must have the ability to establish personal credibility with a range of stakeholders, both internally and externally.  Experience of working within the Charitable or Third Sector would be advantageous but is not essential.


The role will require attendance at meetings outside of normal working hours, therefore, the successful candidate must be willing to work flexible hours when required to meet work demands.
