Job Role
Finance Manager
Contract Type
Full Time
MLC Partners are pleased to be partnering with Morden College to recruit their new Finance Manager.

An organisation rich in history, the charity has been at the forefront of supporting older people’s lives for more than 300 years. They have more than 250 older peoples in alms house accommodation in Blackheath and Beckenham and have a small 28-bed care home on their Blackheath site. Morden College are committed to providing services that support their residents to live independent and healthy lives.

The organisation is embarking on a finance process review, in order to improve their ways of working. With plans in place to upgrade their finance and CRM systems the role would suit a change-focussed individual.

Reporting into the Finance Director, the role is a key member of the team with responsibility of three staff, and the involvement in the strategic vision of the finance team. With their main base in Blackheath, the role is hybrid and strives to offer as much flexibility as possible, including a wide-ranging benefits package.

Main responsibilities of the role:
  • Ensure the completion of all month end processes and the timely delivery of the monthly management accounts.
  • Liaise with key stakeholders to provide a responsive and compliant finance management operation.
  • Support the improvement of processes and systems, ensuring robust policies are in place so the organisation can be fully digitised.
  • Lead and manage a team of four, quality assuring their work, and guiding their careers and ensuring their continued development and nurturing great team culture.
  • Support the Finance Director with the production of the annual financial statements, project managing the team to facilitate a smooth audit delivery across the main organisation as well as subsidiary accounts.

The successful candidate will:
  • Be a fully qualified accountant, likely with experience from within the not-for-profit sector.
  • Have experience driving change and improving processes and broader cultural change in a finance team.
  • Be able to flex up and down from a hands-on perspective to also offer strategic insight to the Finance Director.
  • Have significant experience working in a finance function with the knowledge of ‘what good looks like’.
  • This is a great opportunity for an ambitious individual looking for a high impact role, with the ability to help shape an organisation for years to come.

As part of the Morden College team, you will be committed to challenging ageism, promoting healthy ageing, and combatting loneliness while promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion within communities. You will be comfortable with using technology to deliver consistent, equitable, and sustainable services at all times across the charity. You will be a role model for their values and be committed to a purposeful, responsible community that is a great place to live and work.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday 22nd May and first interviews will be held on the 4th and 5th of June. Please contact Jamie Elliott at MLC Partners for an informal discussion about the role.
