About Jimmy’s Cambridge

Jimmy’s Cambridge is one of Cambridge’s leading providers of support and accommodation to people who are and have been experiencing homelessness. We aim to help people get people off the streets and into their own home, backed up with all the support we can offer from our talented and committed team of staff, volunteers and partners.

The Role

The organisation’s focus is to use as much of our time, funding, and resources on supporting people who are experiencing homelessness. To do this well, we need efficient, excellent services that support the organisation and support the teams.

This role will lead on managing Jimmy’s finance operations, in conjunction with the Chief Executive.

At the moment we do not have a Finance Manager. The Finance Officer is going on maternity leave from the end of October. Therefore, we have decided to recruit a Finance Manager for 1 year, and to contract out the core financial processing to our accountants who are currently and will continue to produce our quarterly management accounts.

Ideally the person will be available to start in October or early November. The post will suit someone who can work a mix of both office and home. 

About You

The new person will come with experience and a working knowledge of charity finance and accounting, ideally with a finance qualification or where finance is a core component of a relevant management or business qualification. They will understand some of the legal and governance requirements relevant to a charitable organisation. We need someone with great communication skills, who can build relationships with people. They will be very well organised and have the right people and project management experience and skills. Overarching this, the person will come with a genuine interest in supporting people who are experiencing homelessness.

How to Apply

To apply, please send us your CV, a supporting statement on no more than 2 sides setting out how you meet the requirements set out in the Person Specification, and an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form. Closing date for applications is 25th September 2020 at 12 noon. We will be holding first stage interviews virtually on 30th September or 1st October 2020, with a second stage in person on 5th October 2020. The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
