Finance Manager - This dynamic, ambitious and growing charity based in Kentish Town is looking for a technically competent, “hands on” Finance Manager to lead the development of their finance function. You should be a highly motivated professional able to work at pace in a changing environment.
The charity is about to embark on the next stage of growth so this is a chance for someone to formulate ideas and make a difference rather than simply maintaining the status quo.
You will manage all day to day finance operations, whilst also taking the lead in identifying and implementing improvements to finance systems and processes to reflect best practice. You will have the opportunity to have a significant impact in modernising and streamlining the finance function and demonstrable experience of proactively improving financial systems and processes is essential.
You will bring strong technical finance skills coupled with the customer service and interpersonal skills to deliver a high quality, responsive service to colleagues across the country. A positive solution-focussed attitude is essential, whilst strong planning skills coupled with the ability to multi task and see projects through to completion will be crucial to success in the role.
Supporting the delivery of the charity’s strategic goals, you will be a collaborative team player, reporting to the Director of Finance & Operations and managing two team members. You will need to be comfortable switching from high level financial management and analysis to hands-on operational processing.
You will be joining the charity at a pivotal time in its strategic development and will benefit from working with great colleagues who know that their work is making a difference to so many vulnerable and isolated people. Other benefits include contributory pension scheme plus 31 days annual leave in addition to bank holidays. Previous charity experience would be a bonus but is not required and applications from those with relevant expertise looking to enter the sector would be welcomed.
