Job description

Bore Place is a historic estate in West Kent set in 500 acres of beautiful countryside. The estate is home to our charity, the Commonwork Trust, focused on creating a world where people and nature work together to regenerate the planet and ourselves

To help us achieve the next stage in our development we have created the new role of Head of Finance. This role will work with the Chief Executive, Senior Management Team and Finance, Risk and Audit Committee to enable us to deliver our ambitious programmes and develop our estate to maximise public benefit. The role is an exciting mix of financial strategy & management, finance, systems improvements, compliance and office and facilities administration. 

The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant, with strong technical and strategic financial skills, with the financial and commercial acumen to support our development. Above all, you will have the attention to detail required to ensure compliance coupled with a desire to enable organisational growth.

Bore Place is now at one of the most exciting stages in its development. You will be joining the organisation at a pivotal moment as we approach our 50th birthday in 2027. Our new 5-year Strategic Plan is in place to guide and focus our work, we have strong cash flows and have recently invested significantly in our infrastructure. Your success will help shape our future -a future focused on creating a paradigm shift in the UK in its approach to nature, farming, climate, the education of children and young people, and our most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities.

We would love to hear from you if you have:

  • Qualified or Part-Qualified Accountant (ACCA, CIMA or equivalent);
  • Experience of managing the finance function of an organisation;
  • Thorough knowledge and experience of producing monthly management accounts accurately and to deadlines;
  • Experience of managing audits and reporting statutory accounts;
  • Up-to-date experience of working with and developing computer-based accounting applications;
  • Up-to-date knowledge of relevant UK government legislation and statutory requirements;
  • Ability to lead on the administration and operational effectiveness of our office and facilities;
  • Proven track record of leading, managing and motivating people; and
  • Commitment to our vision and values

In return we can offer:

  • A chance to be the finance lead on the senior leadership team with the opportunity to use your skills and experience to support the organisation to reach its full potential.
  • Flexible working in a beautiful countryside setting.
  • A role working for a charitable organisation with a passion and drive for delivering sustainability and social justice.

Applications should consist of:

  • A concise covering letter (ideally no longer than two pages), addressing the criteria in the Person Specification and how you align with our values; 
  • An up-to-date curriculum vitae;
  • Names and contact details of three referees (although referees will only be approached at the final stage of the process, and only with your express permission).

The deadline for receipt of applications is 9am on Tuesday 4th January 2022.

First interviews are planned to be held at Bore Place on Friday 14th January 2022.
