AHOY's mission is to change people’s lives through sailing and rowing. From our base on the Thames in Deptford, London we provide opportunities for young people and the local community including those at-risk, disadvantaged or with learning disabilities. The water-based activities we offer using London’s greatest natural resource, the River Thames, are not usually accessible in this area of London. Through sailing, rowing and related learning activities we break down social barriers, develop essential life skills, confidence and pride, and bring people together from many walks of life to work together as a community helping others. Our activities and programmes are focused on teaching transferable and employable skills.
We are seeking a Finance and Charity Services Manager who will play a crucial role as a member of the Senior Leadership Team reporting to the Board of Trustees.
You will be responsible for all financial activities. You will use your experience as a charity finance professional to work with colleagues and trustees to agree and monitor budgets, maintain financial records, provide support for fundraising and ensure effective financial controls and compliance. You will manage the Finance Administrator.
In addition to your financial responsibilities, you will use your analytical skills and charity experience to develop AHOY’s systems and procedures for measuring outcomes and social impact to demonstrate the value of what we do.
You will also be responsible for other administrative support processes.
You will be a part qualified or qualified accountant with experience of charity financial management. You will be well organised, able to work on your own initiative as well as collaboratively and have excellent interpersonal skills.
Whilst this is a full time role, there is also the option to work part-time with some adjustment to responsibilities. Please state in your covering letter if you would like to discuss part-time working.
