Do you have skills and experience in finance? And a passion for environmental and social projects?
Are you interested in joining a creative, innovative and committed team working to support the international Transition movement and amplify stories of community-led change?
Could your financial skills help support our non-hierarchical organisation as we explore and seek to model the changes we want to see in the world?
This is a 17-hours a week home-working role supporting our small team of 11–13 staff, and a number of international and UK-based contractors. Our annual turnover is in the region of £500,000.
You will be responsible for all aspects of finance: including payments, bookkeeping on Paxton, finance procedures and systems, and supporting project budget management and reporting. You will work closely with the treasurer to help trustees fulfil their statutory roles, prepare annual accounts and liaise with the auditor/ independent examiner.
As a Transition Network Team Member, we can all be assigned to roles according to the needs of the organisation and where our experience, knowledge and creativity will have the greatest impact. However, in this recruitment round we are seeking to appoint someone to fill our specialist Finance role, ensuring that Transition Network maintains an effective and efficient finance system which meets statutory obligations and supports frontline delivery.
While our team is mainly UK-based at the moment, we support an international movement and are actively seeking opportunities to distribute power, influence, resources and opportunities as widely as possible.
We are actively seeking to recruit individuals whose background or lived experiences will bring extra depth and/or a diversity of perspectives into our team. This might include: people from a range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, from working class backgrounds, people living with disabilities, a range of ages or sexualities, and/or those who have experienced disadvantage in society or their lives.
