Job description

Could you carry out the financial and administrative tasks that keep this busy charity running?

If you are highly organised, with an eye for detail and great Excel skills, then this could be the role for you.

About us

At Community Impact Bucks, we are passionate about helping people to get involved and make a difference in their communities.

  • We support hundreds of communities and causes across Buckinghamshire by helping charities and voluntary groups to be the best they can be – perhaps by helping them find funding, run their organisation or find volunteers.
  • By helping local residents to find volunteering roles, we support people who want to give back to their communities while at the same time help local charities to find the volunteers they may need to support vital services.
  • And through our community services, we help to build strong, resilient communities and directly help people – the elderly, vulnerable and socially isolated – where we see an unmet need.

We are advertising a number of new roles that will take the charity into the exciting next phase of development and ensure we’re strong, focused and better placed than ever to respond to our communities’ changing needs and adapt to new opportunities and challenges, while making the best use of our resources and developing ambitious services for the future.

Our office in Monks Risborough has free parking and good bus and rail links. Our team is currently working mainly from home, but with access to the office when needed.
