Job Description

UEL Students' Union is an educational charity which supports almost 15,000 students to make the most of their education, to prepare for future employment by developing new skills, and to have a fund time while doing these things. However, we don't operate any bars, shops or nightclubs.

We're seeking a head of finance and admin to improve our financial management, operations and governance. It's a great opportunity to re-build a finance function.

The head of finance and administration will lead the strategic and operational finance function to ensure effective financial management. This will involve modernising the service offer, systems, policies and procedures, including bringing back in house the accounting and payroll functions. The postholder will play a key role in developing the financial literacy and skills of staff, student officers and student groups.

The successful candidate will be CCAB/CIMA qualified or CCAB/CIMA part-qualified with significant experience in a finance role including accounts receivable/payable and preparation of budgets, monthly management accounts, forecasts, year-end financial statements and other reports. This will ideally include a charity/not-for-profit organisation, but this is not essential. Experience of students' unions is not required.

This is a part-time role: three days per week (0.6FTE).

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
