Job description

ShareAction

We are at a pivotal moment: the climate and biodiversity crises are deepening, and inequalities are even more marked in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The global investment system has an oversized impact on many of these global challenges. We want to make sure that impact is positive. At ShareAction we work with investors, policymakers and individuals to unleash the positive potential of the investment system. We aim to build a world where our financial system serves our planet and its people.

We’re a team of problem solvers, using our skills and experience to enhance ShareAction’s impact.

Position

This is a newly created role that will support ShareAction’s continued growth and build capacity and capability within the finance function. You will play a key part in ShareAction’s future growth and success, working closely with the Head of Finance, the fundraising team and budget holders around the organisation to ensure that all grant funding and project costs are in line with expectations and correctly accounted for.

  • You’ll business partner with budget holders across the organisation, becoming a trusted advisor and ensuring that they have sufficient information and training to effectively manage their own budgets
  • You’ll be providing proactive financial analyses to support organisational decision making, increase/diversify income and ensure value for money from our expenditure
  • You will identify and investigate variances to budgeted income and expenditure, working closely with budget holders to identify the business reasons and flag trends

Requirements

  • You’ll have an exceptional organisational and time management skills with the ability to work under pressure, plan and prioritise work effectively and meet deadlines;
  • You will need advanced knowledge of Microsoft Excel and good working knowledge of other Microsoft Office applications as well as a high degree of computer literacy;
  • You’ll need experience of working with accountancy software.

Desirable

  • You would ideally have experience of working in or with the not for profit sector and knowledge of the charity SORP;
  • You would ideally have excellent knowledge of accounting concepts through being a part qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) with relevant experience;
  • You would ideally have experience of working within the finance function of an SME;
  • You would ideally have experience of financial planning and accounting for project.

What we will do for you

  • We will provide you support with any training you require on the job, including using the accountancy software (currently Quickbooks)
