Job description

The Finance and Operations Assistant will be part of the operations team at the Tax Justice Network which is led by the Director, Operations & Communications and includes the Finance Manager, who this post will report into, Operations Manager and Project Manager. The team lead and deliver on a range of operational services from financial management, risk management, project management, event management, Human Resources, IT systems and other enabling functions.

The two primary functions of the role (and the focus of each one of the roles if split) will be to support the financial management of the organisation by processing and reconciling financial records and running payroll, and to support the operational functions by administrating our human resource systems, recruitment processes and annual leave processes. All aspects of the role will focus on ensuring documents and records are accurate and appropriately electronically filed.

The operations team is a busy team in a fast moving and agile organisation. Therefore you need to be someone who is a problem solver and top multi-tasker who enjoys getting stuck into projects. You will need to masterfully juggle tasks and activities, anticipate what needs to be done and be proactive in pursuit of top quality operational support delivery.

We are flexible on where the postholder is located, though ideally within the UK or one of the countries we have employment contracting arrangements which would include France, Germany and Spain. As mentioned above we are willing to consider splitting the role into two part-time posts or two part-time people job sharing as well as 1 person filling the role full time. We are also flexible about the working hours as long as the hours worked are spread over at least three days per week.
