Job description

Role Description

The HR and Finance Co-ordinator will sit at the heart of our Operations Team, reporting to the Operations Manager and playing a crucial function in ensuring the efficient day to day management of the organisation’s finances and HR functions.


For the finance component of the role, you will use our accountancy software (Quickbooks) and our own internal financial spreadsheets to manage the day to day administration of our finances, including recording and tracking the income expected from funders, processing invoices and payments and producing monthly reconciliations for our Operations Manager and Co-CEOs. You will also work with our teams to ensure compliance with our financial policies, process petty cash and expenses and work with our external accountants each year to provide the information needed for our accounts.


To help High Trees manage our HR functions, you will work with our Operations Team to induct new staff members, coordinate staff CPD training, support notetaking at HR meetings and work with the teams to ensure compliance with our HR policies, procedures and HR paperwork. You will use our online portals to record staff data, manage online HR functions and train new staff in its use. You will also work with the teams on the recruitment of new staff including organising interviews and collecting references.


You do not need to have specifically used Quickbooks before, but will have at least two years experience using some form of accountancy software or finance system, and be proficient in managing financial admin using excel. You will be a highly organised administrator, be methodical in your approach and be a good and clear communicator. You will have the skills necessary to balance the various functions of the role and will be enthusiastic about working with a charity to improve their systems and processes.
