Exciting new interim opportunity to take the lead role in finance for an organisation in the charitable sector in Taunton! If you’re ready to work for an organisation making a real difference to the most vulnerable in society, this could be just the role for you…

Trial Balance has been assigned to find an Interim Head of Finance to join the senior management team and head up a small finance team dealing with the entire finance function for our client, based in Taunton with easy access from the M5.

This role will see you take a holistic oversight of all aspects of the finance life cycle, from overseeing the transactional finance and payroll functions, through to managing the preparation of the year end statutory accounts, management accounting and budgeting, and providing detailed analysis and insight to inform strategic decision making. The finance system is Xero, and it would also be highly beneficial if you have a strong understanding of managing grants and charitable funding.

Strong staff supervisory skills and the credibility to deal effectively with senior management will be key to your success in this role.
