Job description

We have an exciting opportunity for Finance and Operations Manager to join a small team. This is a new role and it will report to the Head of Finance. We are looking for a people-focused problem solver, with good financial acumen and a track-record of successfully managing projects. The successful candidate will bring experience working in a financial accounting context and – crucially – must be able to reconcile accounts to trial balance. Beyond that, however, the successful candidate might be someone stepping into a management role for the first time, or someone with an existing track-record at the level.

We are a small friendly, supportive workplace with a good sense of humour. We work closely together, always looking at better ways of working together and collaborating. We have very flexible working patterns and most of our team work remotely. We are happy to discuss various work arrangements with the right candidate. 

UpRising champions diversity, social mobility and equality in all we do. The majority of our alumni come from a Black, Asian, minority ethnic or White marginalized background and over half our programme participants are the first in their family to get into university; others join us with trade apprenticeships, HNDs, or NVQ Level 5 qualifications. 

Our Mission is to open up the pathways to leadership for talented young adults
from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds and to equip them with the
knowledge, networks, skills and confidence to fulfil their leadership potential, find
new opportunities and transform the world around them through social action.

Our Vision is for public leaders to better reflect and represent the communities
they serve; with the motivation and character to bring about a substantial shift in
power, enabling more people to take charge of their future and positively change
their communities.
