Charity Finance Jobs and Accountancy from director level to administration – UK wide
Every charity needs strong financial controls if it is to be a successful organisation. It is also essential that charities are financially transparent to win the trust of the public. Trust and transparency for all charities is more important than ever and finance staff have a key role to play in making sure that happens.
Strong financial controls improves people’s lives
Finance may be about the bottom line, but the bottom line in a charity can mean less homeless people on the streets; stronger environmental laws; or more children in developing countries going to school.
Working for a charity
Types of positions in the sector are listed below. In smaller charities a finance professional may be expected to carry out many of these tasks. It is also worth pointing out that working for a charity will mean carrying out jobs you wouldn’t normally be expected to do for a company. For example, attend fundraising events, meet and greet HNWI donors or Trustees from Foundations. However, the variety of work and people you will be dealing with makes a charity finance job an extremely appealing alternative to working for a company. The pay is pretty good too, although again this does depend on the size of the charity.
