Job description

If you are a qualified accountant looking to give something back, this is a brilliant opportunity to support the success of a charity that connects communities and creates local greenspaces.

The Finance Manager will provide financial administrative, accounting and bookkeeping support to ensure the smooth financial running of The Orchard Project. They will produce regular management accounts, coordinate the preparation of the statutory accounts, lead on charity budgeting and forecasting, produce financial documents for funders, and report to the Finance & Compliance Committee (a sub-committee of the Board).

The Orchard Project is the national charity for community orchards. Our vision is that everyone, in cities across the UK, is within easy reach of a thriving community orchard. Our mission is to bring orchards into the heart of urban communities.

Orchards were once a significant part of the UK’s natural environment, but many have been lost to urban development. We want to remedy this, and bring the magic of orchards into cities and areas of urban deprivation, where the environmental and social benefits of greenspace and community growing can make such a big difference.

We inspire and train communities across England, Scotland and Wales to create, restore and maintain community orchards for the benefit of people, communities and the environment. We have been around since 2009, supporting about 600 community orchards in our time.

We provide ongoing support for groups as well as running accredited training programmes in orchard management and forest gardening. Our project work is varied and we work in a range of settings including prisons, schools and in the diverse communities that we serve.

Our total annual income is around £600k, and we have a staff team of 18 people.
