Job Description

Talking Money is a Bristol-based money advice charity with a vision of ‘Communities living without poverty’. Our team provides free, independent, specialist debt and benefits advice, and general money guidance, information and support to local citizens. We have provided high quality, effective and innovative advice services in Bristol and the surrounding areas for nearly 30 years.

We are seeking a confident and experienced finance officer to be responsible for the day-to-day administration and maintenance of our financial records and bank accounts, ensuring that our financial rules are followed and that we use our accounting software (currently Sage) to the best of its ability.  

We are looking for someone on a part-time basis for between 15 and 24 hours (split over 2 to 4 days, depending on your preference). There are points within the year where additional hours would be helpful; overtime arrangements could potentially be agreed for these times were that convenient for you.

The role can be either home-based or office-based, or a mixture of the two.

Your main responsibilities would include (but are not limited to):

  • Processing all transactions (currently through Sage)
  • Monitoring expenditure, processing and raising payments to partners agencies, contractors and suppliers
  • Monitor grant income and pre-payment accounts held
  • Preparation and processing of monthly staff payroll and expenses
  • Preparation of submission of returns to HMRC, including VAT and gift aid
  • Preparation of management accounts for the leadership team and trustees
  • Monitoring cash flow and preparing projections as required
  • Monthly bank and cash reconciliation

You will be a confident and experienced finance professional with experience of using accounting software, ideally Sage; raising and processing invoices; reconciling bank accounts, and running a payroll system. As well as strong planning, organisational and problem-solving skills, you will have a proactive, methodical and flexible approach to your work. With excellent time management skills, you will have demonstrable experience of managing a heavy workload and working effectively as part of a team.

Closing Date: NA. This is an open-ended recruitment; we will close the advertisement when we have met our recruitment needs.
