If you are a high calibre finance professional with a great management style, this is the perfect opportunity to advance your career within a charity sector whilst making a real impact to the LGBT community.
Joining our inclusive organisation, you will discover the chance to play a key role in the ongoing success of LGBT Foundation and our finances as we grow and aim to support more LGBT people than ever before.

- Experience of submitting financial related claims such as VAT and tax returns, gift aid claims, and HMRC reporting
- An understanding of financial risks and knowledge around risk mitigation
- A demonstrable commitment to equality of opportunity and an understanding of the issues faced by LGBT communities
- Knowledge of working with accountancy software (ideally Quickbooks or similar)
- The ability to convey complex financial information in an easy-to-understand format
- Excellent analytical skills
