Finance Manager


This is a rare opportunity to take the helm of the finance function of a private charity whose buildings have recently undergone significant expansion and development, thereby maximising customer care and output. This charity provides a significant private service as well as having supply contracts with the NHS.

The incoming Finance Manager will be a significant part of the Senior Management Team, as well as being Clerk to the Trustees and sitting on the Finance Committee. Heading up a small team, the role is a split between financial and general management, and will require flexibility as well as excellent interpersonal skills.

A sample of duties includes:

  • Preparation of quarterly financial reports to the Council of the charity
  • Preparation of annual budget plan in conjunction with colleagues
  • Monthly management accounts
  • Supervision of payroll systems
  • Invoice production
  • Deputising for the CEO as requested
  • Managing Finance, Store-keeping, HR and external maintenance departments
  • Organising of establishment systems e.g. IT and telephony

This is a 24 hour operation, and as part of the Senior Team, the post-holder is expected to be responsive in a constantly changing environment. Previous experience as a Company Secretary and of managing IT systems is desirable. A knowledge of health care services and the care sector would be helpful.

Benefits include a 5% non-contributory pension, 28 days holiday + Bank Holidays and own parking space.
