Part Time Finance Manager (Charity) – Exeter – Circa: £36,000 FTE
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 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 the regions most respected community charity’s; an organisation with multi-faceted service offerings, assisting some the county’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged. They seek to recruit an experienced Finance Manager, a permanent opportunity offering a flexible part time working arrangement of approximately two days per week (can be split over multiple days to suit the successful candidate).
This is a position of pivotal responsibilities within the organisation and one that works closely with the Chief Executive. Working as part of a small but passionate team, 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 Sage
- Production of management accounts for presentation with commentary to the CEO/board
- Budget forecasting
- Bank reconciliations
- Authorising supplier payment runs
- Cashflow and income monitoring
- HMRC submissions
- Monthly payroll operations to include employee pensions
- Preparation of annual balance sheet
- Preparation of statutory reports in line with Charities SORP
- VAT preparation and submission
- Liaison with external auditors and stakeholders
The successful candidate: We seek a professionally qualified accountant (ACA/ACCA/CIMA/CIPFA), with strong experience in all aspects of end-to-end accounting and future strategy planning. Previous experience gained in a charity accounting environment would be highly advantageous, but this employer recognises that a commercially astute Finance Manager with exposure gained in the private sector will also have a lot to offer here. Either way you’ll be an accomplished accountant with superb organisational and interpersonal skills.
