Job description

We are seeking a Finance Manager to manage the charity’s finances ensuring good financial controls are in place and that sound and appropriate practices are maintained. The post-holder will advise the leadership team on all matters relating to the financial performance of the organisation and provide management information for the Heads of Department and Board of Trustees.

You will have:

  • Experience of managing charity finances, and be qualified in any of the following:
  • Experience of sound financial management and budgeting and monitoring performance through financial reports and key performance indicators.
  • Highly effective people management skills – able to manage, develop and motivate staff, both individually and in teams, to achieve a high level of performance
  • A management style which is empowering and supportive

Designability is an independent charity that enables disabled people to live with greater independence. Our expertise is in user-centred design, creating products with and for disabled people to improve and enrich their lives. All of our work is funded by voluntary donations.

The number of disabled people in the UK is growing each year and our products are now needed more than ever. We deliver choice by involving disabled people across our organisation and throughout the design process to create innovative product solutions not available elsewhere.

You will be joining a small team which includes mechanical and electronics engineers, workshop technicians, product designers, occupational and physiotherapists, fundraisers, researchers and administrators.

Designability was recently awarded second place in the ‘Best Charities to Work For 2020’ list by Third Sector which is a reflection of our team highly rating the fact that we encourage activities that create strong teams and foster good personal relationships. Our staff also stated their confidence in Designability’s leadership and strategic planning.

This role will initially be home working until circumstances allow working at our office in Bath.

The University of Bath provide us with recruitment support and applications are made through the University of Bath Jobs website. We choose to follow many of the University of Bath’s human resources policies. However, Designability is a fully independent charity and our staff contracts are not with the University.
