Job description

Faith in Action Merton Homelessness Project (FiA)

Our mission is to help and support homeless and vulnerably-housed people in and around the London Borough of Merton. We operate a twice-weekly Drop-in, currently welcoming 50-60 individuals each day, while our Winter Night Shelter provides a warm, dry place to sleep every night during the coldest nights of the year – this winter from 4 December until 10 March 2024.

Our current Finance Director Trustee is retiring, having completed the maximum of nine years in the role. We’re now looking for an enthusiastic and committed volunteer for the role which covers the following positions:

  1. Finance Director and Trustee
  2. Bookkeeper

The current incumbent fulfils both roles but we would consider splitting the responsibilities if two complementary applications were received.

Finance Director (FD) and Trustee

This role includes joining the current team of Trustees, who together have overall responsibility for the successful running of the Charity.

Key responsibilities of the FD are:

● Overall responsibility for the finances and accounting of the charity

● Oversee financial management and operations, and manage internal financial controls, ensuring that we adhere to Charity Commission guidelines at all times

● Liaison with FiA’s auditors

● Being a bank signatory

● Oversee all business relationships/contracts to ensure best value

● Report on financial matters to Trustees and make recommendations as necessary

● Attend Trustee meetings (usually around 10 pa),

● Recommend pay rises and annual bonuses for FiA’s team of eight staff

● Authorise payments up to £1,000 (note: payments above £1,000 should be referred to the Trustees) Estimated time commitment: 6-10 hours per month


Key responsibilities are:

● Maintaining an up-to-date cash account and summarising the position monthly for preparation of reports

● Prepare monthly bank reconciliations

● Accounting for Gift Aid and submitting payment applications to HMRC

● Overseeing the management of the payroll and submission of documentation to HMRC, and any stakeholder pension arrangements (note: the payroll is managed on a bureau basis by Wimbledon Guild)

● Payment of regular bills

● Authorise payments up to £500 (note: manager to sign off payments up to £200) Estimated time commitment: 8-10 hours per month.

For more information about either post, please contact Bernie McAlister, Chair of Trustees.
