Are you an Finance Assistant looking to develop your career within the charity sector?

We are partnering with a leading women's charity to recruit their new Finance Assistant on a permanent basis.

Reporting to the Management Accountant, the overall purpose of this role is to support the service delivery and performance of the finance function by managing all aspects of invoice payments and expenses. Â Day to day duties of the role will consist of coding invoices, ensuring purchase orders match relevant invoices, inputting invoices onto their accounting system, Exchequer, and paying invoices by their due dates. You will have the opportunity to assist with month end tasks, with a particular focus on accruals and prepayments, including running weekly reports for credit control. The successful candidate will also control all aspects of petty cash, as well as reconciling supplier accounts. As part of the finance team, you will be required to undertake additional ad-hoc tasks as and when required.

To be considered for this role, it is essential to have previous experience of purchase ledger work such as processing, paying and inputting invoices. You are required to have practical knowledge of accounting systems and software, along with advanced Excel skills. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are also essential for this role, with the ability to build relationships with managers and internal colleagues. This role is ideally suited to someone with a methodical approach to their workload, with excellent attention to detail. Experience of working within a charity or public sector organisation is desirable.

If you are not currently studying towards a finance qualification such as ACCA, AAT, or CIMA, the charity will be able to support you through the course.
