Job description

Background to the FinanceTeam

Our small central office Finance team provides financial support to all the central Green Party functions, including to the offices of our representatives in Parliament.

We also coordinate the statutory financial reporting to the Electoral Commission for both the central Party transactions, and for local and regional Green Parties(Accounting Units).

In normal times there is the usual mix of income and expenditure recording, monthly payroll, monthly reconciliations and management accounts, quarterly VAT returns, quarterly income submissions to the Electoral Commission, and annual audited accounts etc. During and after nationwide general elections there will be a large volume of transactions that need to be accurately recorded and reported, and this may require additional temporary staff to assist with the processing.

Purpose of the role

As part of our Finance Team, the Financial Controller will be responsible for ensuring that all transactions are promptly and accurately recorded in our accounting software. This key person will also lead the processes for ensuring that all statutory submissions are made accurately and on time to the relevant regulator, including collecting and consolidating the financial returns from our 280 local party voluntary treasurers.

We need a meticulous accountant who is familiar with meeting statutory filing deadlines and dedicated to providing an excellent finance service to the rest of the organisation.

Key roles and responsibilities include:

  • Running the payroll each month: correctly making all changes in the most timely manner; ensuring pensions are calculated and paid; ensuring all statutory deductions are correctly applied and paid to HMRC; resolving any queries arising from staff.

  • Approving purchase invoices and ensure that coding and VAT treatment is correct; ensure invoices are promptly paid; liaise with staff regarding any queries.

  • Ensuring the recording of income is timely and accurate, including correctly recording the source and any restrictions in use of funds.

  • Ensuring outgoing debtors invoices are accurately and promptly prepared and that amounts owed are received.

  • Preparing all submissions required by the Electoral Commission under the Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act (PPERA), including consolidation of financial returns from the local Green Party Accounting Units; reporting of all donations and loans received; reporting of all required Election expenditure.

  • Preparing the quarterly VAT returns, including collecting and consolidating income and expenditure data from local party voluntary treasurers.

  • Ensuring monthly reconciliations are prepared for all Balance Sheet accounts.

  • Assisting in the preparation of monthly management accounts information and respond to queries from budget managers.

  • Maintaining the fixed asset register, including preparing depreciation, additions and disposal journals.

  • Assisting in the production of schedules for the year-end financial statements and in resolving audit queries.

  • Assisting in the development, documentation, implementation and maintenance of appropriate financial procedures and controls.
