Exclusive to Trial Balance Consulting

Charity Finance Manager – St. Austell / Hybrid – Circa: £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 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 exclusively 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, full time opportunity offering a flexible working arrangement and potential for hybrid working where suitable.  

This is a position of pivotal responsibilities within the organisation and one that works closely with the board of trustees and general charity management board. 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 operations

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

- 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’re more focussed on relevant technical and career experience than we are qualification status so applications are invited from both QBE, AAT and part/fully professionally qualified applicants. 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.
