The successful candidate will be CCAB qualified and ideally have a charity accounting qualification or considerable experience in a similar role. Proficiency in the use of accounting software (preferably Sage), database/reporting software and Microsoft Office is vital.

Strategic thinking will come naturally to the successful candidate and will be applied to all aspects of their work.
