Your new company
You will be working for this fantastic not-for-profit organisation which makes a real difference to the lives of individuals and families in Scotland facing financial hardship. The organisation also benefits the wider community in regards to impacting the wellbeing economy. This organisation has gone from strength to strength since it\'s launch less than 10 years ago and now employ over 150 people. The busy finance team have a great opportunity for a newly qualified / qualified candidate to join them on a permanent basis in what promises to be an interesting and varied role.
Your new role
Reporting to the financial controller, you will assist in the smooth running of the finance department, you will manage liaison with external and internal contacts, inc. supply chain representatives, have oversight and control over raising purchase orders and matching process, assist with process development and mapping and undertake finance system work as required.
This role will also enjoy a degree of staff management, and you will look after two transactional finance team members. You will also build good relationships with internal and external stakeholders alike.
What you\'ll need to succeed
You will be qualified via ACCA, CA, CIMA, CIPFA or equivalent and have experience of working across multiple deadlines. You will have great organisational skills, along with attention to detail, and you will be able to work confidently under your own initiative. Good excel and numeracy skills are expected, and you will also have an interesting and developing others, given the line management responsibility within the role.
What you\'ll get in return
Many finance professionals tell me they are looking for flexibility and balance, interesting work, career progression and job security. The role promises all of those things. In regards to flexibility, the organisation offers a hybrid working policy with 2 days in the office and although the norm is a 9am-5pm working pattern, there is flex around this. The work is varied and interesting and the scope of work the organisation undertakes is constantly evolving. There is good career progression within the role, given the sustained growth the organisation has seen, and when it comes to job security, this is one of the few organisations I know of who continued to recruit throughout the recent pandemic.
Benefits wise, there is a matched pension (upto 10%), 34 days annual leave and discretionary bonuses.
What makes this role exciting, is the blend between a commercial and interesting role and some of the balance you would hope for in a not-for-profit organisation. That combined with a great purpose makes this a really appealing opportunity, perhaps well suited to someone looking to make a \'first move\' from the profession.
