Sufra NW London is a Community Food and Advice Hub that provides a lifeline to people in crisis – including families living in extreme poverty and people who are vulnerable, homeless or socially isolated. We provide them with the food and support they need to survive, empower them to learn new skills and improve their wellbeing, and help them to find work and become financially stable.
We are recruiting a Finance and Administration Manager to help scale-up the charity’s financial and administrative infrastructure in line with the growth and development we have experienced in recent years. The postholder will work closely with the Director and the Senior Finance Advisor to prepare and manage budgets, monitor income/spending and prepare management accounts for the Board of Trustees. Among other responsibilities, they will line manage the Administrative Officer and oversee the charity’s digital infrastructure and HR systems.
We are seeking someone with at least 3 years’ charity finance experience who can take responsibility for ensuring financial procedures are maintained in line with the charity’s policies and can identify/make improvements to systems and processes, as necessary. This is a hands-on role in a grassroots charity where you will be working closely with the existing part-time Senior Finance Advisor (who works remotely) and members of the Management Team to re-shape how we manage all aspects of our financial administration.
The candidate will be a confident communicator and an organised self-starter. You will have experience managing staff and be capable of prioritising urgent tasks and working under pressure. The ideal candidate would be interested in taking on additional finance responsibilities as the charity continues to grow in the years ahead.
This is an immensely rewarding role working in a dynamic charity built on an ethos of sharing, hospitality and inclusivity. We are looking for an exceptionally committed individual who is willing to go the extra mile and has an adaptable and flexible attitude. Through your activities, you will be able to convey the charity’s passion and commitment to supporting vulnerable people and help the charity transform the lives of beneficiaries.
Flexible working hours/days are available to fit around childcare or other needs, including some home working.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
