Ref DS8347

We‘re still considering our shortlist. Suitably experienced candidates invited to apply ASAP.

Charity Finance Manager - Hayle - £35,000

There’s a lot to consider when moving on to a new job opportunity. The role responsibilities need to suit, the remuneration needs to be attractive, and the future prospects need to be bright. But perhaps one of the most important and often overlooked factors to consider is a strong belief in your new employer’s values and the nature of their operation. If working with a highly ethical organisation that genuinely changes & improves people’s lives means as much as the job that you’re paid to do, this will undoubtedly be an opportunity that will be of interest. 

Trial Balance Consulting have been engaged by one of Cornwall’s most respected and fast paced charity’s; an organisation with multi-faceted service offerings, assisting some the county’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged residents. They seek to recruit an experienced Finance Manager, a position of pivotal responsibilities within the organisation and one that works closely with the Chief Executive. Supervising a small team of two transactional support staff, this will be a broad and varied role with the following responsibilities: 

- Acting as the finance number one for the charity, overseeing day-to-day accounting activity using a Sage based platform

- Production of management accounts for presentation with commentary to the CEO/board

- Bank reconciliations

- Authorising supplier payment runs

- Cashflow and income monitoring

- HMRC submissions

- Monthly payroll operations to include employee pensions

- Preparation of annual balance sheet

- VAT preparation and submission

- Liaison with external auditors and stakeholders

In an ideal world, we’re searching for a candidate with charity-based experience operating at a similar level. A thorough knowledge of charity taxation, VAT coding, and allocation of income across multiple streams. A practice-based charity specialist seeking their first role outside of the profession would fit the bill perfectly, as a would an experienced individual joining from another medium sized charity (£1.5-2M t/o). Our client will also be open to reviewing applicants with a private sector background, but who possess a strong aptitude for learning new procedures and protocols. Either way you’ll be an accomplished accountant with superb organisational and interpersonal skills. We’re more focussed on relevant technical and career experience than we are qualification status so applications are invited from both QBE, AAT and professionally qualified applicants (ACA/ACCA/CIMA/CIPFA). 

And one more thing. We’re in a hurry. Our client wants CVs on their desk without delay and with a view to interviewing as and when they review interesting candidates. Rapid availability would be highly advantageous. Please do not delay in applying, contact Dan Saunders quoting reference DS8347 for further details and to apply.
