My client is a Leeds based not-for-profit organisation who are looking for a Finance Manager to join their dynamic team on a permanent basis. Reporting into the Finance Director, this is a brilliant opportunity for someone with management and financial accounting experience who is looking to take a step up into a role with the genuine capacity to influence and interact with a senior management team.

The key duties and responsibilities of this Finance Manager role are as follows:

  • Take the lead in the preparation of the statutory accounts and act as a key contact for the External Auditors at year end.

  • Manage key relationships with stakeholders across the charity, providing monthly finance reports, monitoring spend against budgets and offering financial advice as required.
  • Full supervision of a small finance team, including workflow management and review, providing training and support and giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential.
  • Produce cashflow forecasts and manage the charity’s complex balance sheet, preparing reconciliations as necessary.

With 34 days annual leave, up to 13% employer pension contribution and numerous opportunities to grow and develop professionally, this is an excellent opportunity for candidates looking to join a close-knit finance team within a rapidly growing, complex establishment.
