Job description

The Trust is delighted to have secured grant funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to invest in improving the impact and resilience of our finance and information systems.

Reporting to the Director of Finance & Resources, the Finance Project Manager will be an enthusiastic and capable individual who will be working closely with our finance and broader staff team to help us identify finance system requirements and select a suitable system. You will then work closely with the chosen supplier’s consultants – again with our staff - to design and implement the new finance system.

As Finance Project Manager you will deal with day-to-day activities for the project - this is a hands-on role where you will be the central point for the project organisation and delivery.

You will develop and deliver a work plan with clear milestones, communicating and involving stakeholders and managing project documentation.  You will work with the consultants and finance team to create the agreed system infrastructure and reports.

You will be a finance professional, ideally a qualified accountant with all round finance experience, strong process expertise and a talent for IT.

Ideally you will have project management experience but more important are your organisational and analytical skills. You will be a good communicator who is determined, resilient and proactive.
