About Us

Kick It Out are advocates on behalf of under-represented and minority communities in football, working to increase their representation in every area of the game – from grassroots to the Premier League, from the pitch to the side-lines and from the stands to the boardroom. We do everything in our power to report incidents of discrimination, educate communities, and mentor a new generation of people in the sport.


Football should be a game for everyone, whether they play it, work it in it or support it. But not everyone is welcome. Kick It Out’s mission is to campaign for change to end discrimination and build belonging, so that everyone feels they can be a part of a sport that should be for all.


Job Purpose

We are seeking a part-time Finance Manager to oversee the organisation’s finance function and processes to monitor the present and future financial condition of the organisation.

With an ambitious growth plan in the coming years, we need to build a successful financial infrastructure to enable that development.

Developing financial management strategies will provide overall control of the monitoring and reporting of accurate financial records.

Main responsibilities will include:


  • Overseeing the entire finance function, including ongoing management and reporting to the leadership team and Board of Trustees.
  • Ensuring financial reports are shared with relevant funding organisations; tracking project spend and financial resources for each programme aligned to the strategic budget.
  • Developing the strategic budgets together with the CEO and leadership team.
  • Management of the cashflow forecasting and control.
  • Developing and maintaining sound financial systems and controls appropriate to a small charity.
  • Preparing year-end financial accounts and supporting the financial audit process.
  • Financial analysis and scenario modelling required by the leadership team, Board of Trustees or prospective funders. 
  • Management of an outsourced bookkeeper, maintaining robust financial records.
  • Leading on the banking systems and efficient payroll processes.
  • Present financial updates to Board of Trustees and attend quarterly Board meetings and Finance and Risk sub-committee meetings.
  • Assist the CEO in developing and implementing Kick It Out’s business plans.
  • Proactively assist the CEO in developing existing and new income streams for Kick It Out; these may include grants, funding from government agencies, donations, and commercial sponsorship deals.
  • Maintain good relationships with all stakeholders – in particular, ensuring that Kick It Out complies with the conditions of grants provided by the charity’s core funders (and any other donors or agencies), as well as with the terms of any commercial contracts or sponsorship agreements.
  • Ensure that Kick It Out fulfils its legal and charitable responsibilities, including all filing obligations.
  • Working with the Head of Operations, ensure that Kick It Out has all the necessary and appropriate insurances in place.
  • Efficiently manage the purchasing of charity resources (Kick It Out mainly uses prepaid Soldo cards issued to all staff).


Kick It Out is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.  Kick It Out selects all candidates for interview based on skills, qualifications and experience. Candidates with a disability who meet the criteria will be offered a guaranteed interview.
