Job Description

Aspire Oxford is looking for a part-time Finance Officer (Income Cycle) to join our award-winning team. 

Due to continued organisational growth, we need to upgrade our finance function to ensure accurate and timely accounting and effective decision support to operational management. We have recently recruited a qualified accountant to head the Finance team and are now recruiting for a second part-time Finance Officer.

The division of duties between the two Finance Officers is flexible, but it is envisaged that this post will have particular responsibility for the income cycle, our trading company, VAT and Fixed Assets.

What we are looking for

We are looking for a Finance Officer with good technical skills, accurate double-entry bookkeeping, a good grasp of VAT and the ability to work with a wide range of colleagues across disciplines and levels of the organisation.  You must be self-motivated, organised, a good communicator and be supportive of colleagues. 

The post may suit a part-qualified Accountant or fully –qualified Accounting Technician, but we will consider someone qualified by experience providing you have good technical skills.

If this vital role in a growing and ambitious social enterprise and charity is the opportunity you have been looking for, please apply by sending a copy of your CV and a covering letter by midday Wednesday 4th September, 2019 for the attention of Philip Bonnier.

Please use your covering letter to demonstrate how your skills, qualities and experience meet each of our requirements listed in the Person Specification and how they have helped you achieve relevant, positive results, as this will give you the best possible chance of being shortlisted.
