Financial Management adviser

Worsley Mesnes Community Association

Financial Management Adviser

This role will centre on helping grow a financial management process that the Treasurer and a 'trainee' volunteer can lead on - one that is compliant with charity and company law - and stands as an exemplar of good practice in community participation and transparency terms, and one that is accessible to designated staff, enabling a degree of delegated procurement, transaction management and reporting responsibility to be taken-up.
Ideally, we are looking for someone with experience of financial management in the charitable sector - knowledge and understanding of requirements presented by the Charity Commission and Companies House; experience in accounts' preparation and internal auditing, and the submission of annual returns; also the growth and introduction of new approaches to financial management, and the coaching/enablement of others in work through the same.
You will play a key part in growing the capacity of the Community Association's current Treasurer in rigorous, participatory and transparent budget planning, financial performance management and reporting terms - also the capacity of a volunteer to deputise in her absence (her maternity leave up and coming, as it will be, late 2012/early 2013). You will also help create and embed an operating framework that empowers staff and volunteers.
This is a good opportunity to help a small community organisation progress on its developmental journey and work to optimise its social contribution in an area of acute social need. The equivalent of 1 day a week - some daytime and some evening hours.
