Independent Financial Support

In line with our policies and procedures to ensure good governance and value for money, we are reviewing our use of independent contractors and suppliers. As a result we are re-tendering for our independent finance support.

The majority of the day to day finance functions are carried out in-house by an employed member of staff. However we use an independent contractor to provide senior finance functions, provide additional support when required and ensure impartiality.

We are keen for the sub-contractor to work with and train our existing Finance Officer to further develop her skills and we will need you to help us develop our social enterprise income streams and to produce monthly and quarterly management reports. We need you to be experienced, personable and responsive, able to respond to our requests and also suggest best practice and improvements. Applicants for this post will need to be skilled in the use of Sage. Reasonable travel expenses will be paid for duties related to this role and will be agreed in advance.
