  • Application process: Application form and then two interview rounds.

Equal opportunities 

Possible is committed to providing equal opportunities for all applicants regardless of their background. We value diversity whilst also acknowledging that people from certain backgrounds are underrepresented in our organisation. We are keen to correct this, so particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people; people who identify as disabled; people who identify as LGBTQIA+ communities; people who have experienced mental health challenges and people who identify as working class (or have done in the past).

About the role

Are you a qualified accountant concerned about the climate crisis? Are you someone with a passion for ensuring change-making organisations are run on a solid financial foundation? Do you have the expertise and people skills to bring financial perspectives to strategic decision making? If so, we should talk.

As our new head of finance, you’ll be Possible’s appointed financial whizz. As well as being responsible for  day-to-day finance operations, you’ll work closely with the senior management team to provide financial insight for long-term strategy spanning campaigns, fundraising, communications and operations, helping ensure the long term viability of our plans and projects.

You’ll work especially closely with your line manager, the co-director for strategic development, but also the heads of operations, head of fundraising and other senior managers, as well as helping provide our trustee board with the information they need.

Operationally, you’ll be responsible for managing our book-keeping  payroll (using an external payroll provider), managing regular reconciliations, producing monthly management accounts as well as financial accounts to meet our statutory responsibilities, maintaining oversight of contracts and partnership agreements - and providing support where needed to all teams within your area of expertise. You’ll also be our point of contact for banks, auditors, HMRC, payroll providers and pension providers.

Working closely with the co-director for strategic development, you’ll lead our annual financial planning and budgeting (financial year July-June), ensuring that adequate processes are in place to allocate resources effectively and monitor financial matters at all levels of the organisation. You’ll make sure that adequate financial controls and risk management techniques are in place and functioning well.

As with all members of the Possible team you’ll be part of a small, passionate, nimble and positive organisation that cares about its people, its projects and, ultimately, the planet. And everyone chips in to make the tea, take out the bins and do the washing up (or the virtual equivalents), so there’s that too.

Person specification

  • A qualified accountant with experience of delivering the full range of financial and accounting services required by a charity or small business.

  • Experience of administering cloud based accounting systems such as xero or quick books.

  • Ability to digest, understand and analyse information independently.

  • Strong knowledge and demonstrable experience in financial planning and modelling with the ability to present complex information effectively to non-finance audiences 

  • Good interpersonal skills with the ability to work successfully across different teams and contribute effectively as a member of the senior management team.

  • The ability to advise on strategic finance matters as well as being hands-on when managing the day to day finance operations.

  • Excellent organisational and time management skills.

  • Experience of working with charity accounting, tax regimes and governance requirements.

  • Strong working knowledge of risk management techniques.

  • Commitment to our vision and values.

About Possible

Here at Possible, we have a vision for a zero carbon Britain that has been built by and belongs to everybody.

To get there, we dream up projects, build tools and spread success stories to make sure everyone has the help and inspiration they need to play a role in tackling climate change. Our work cuts carbon, but because we work on cultural as well as technical levels, we get people talking about climate change action too. We want our projects to take on the world, so it is always about more than just a solar panel here, or an LED there - it’s about groups of people working together to change the world.

Our values

Inclusivity, trust and respect, creativity, shared ambition, positivity, caring and kindness, integrity, and openness. 

These aren’t just buzzwords to make us feel warm and fuzzy, they are what guide our actions and our organisational culture. Away-days help to keep these values alive and we work together to keep our team as supported, empowered and cared for as possible. We’re run by a team of directors rather than one single CEO, and we’re committed to reducing hierarchy wherever possible.

We are committed to supporting people with marginalised identities who are under-represented in our organisation. If you have any questions about the job or how we do things at Possible before you apply, please contact us and we can arrange a phone call.

Workplace benefits

  • 25 days paid holiday pro rata (+ bank holidays and three days at Christmas).

  • Flexible working.

  • Paid volunteer leave.

  • Bike to work scheme.

  • Paid journey days for low carbon holiday travel.

  • Good parental leave.

  • Employer pension contribution.

  • Access to complementary Headspace account (mindfulness and meditation app).

  • Access to our workplace employee assistance programme, including free counselling sessions and financial advice.
