Closing date: 31 March 2017
The finance manager will support the head of finance and resources to manage the day-to-day finances of Local Trust. This includes the Big Local Trust expendable endowment; the grants we distribute; and the social investments we make. You will help ensure the smooth running of financial management and reporting systems to enable Local Trust to achieve its aims.
Come and join our team and help us support people to make their areas even better places to live.
At Local Trust, we have £150m to invest in communities over the next decade, in places that need funding, support and encouragement. But we don’t decide how much gets spent, on what and when. Instead, residents decide how to use the money to meet local needs. Our funding approach means that every community tailors the funding around their own priorities. In coming together to think about solutions, our support structure also helps to build confidence, skills and capacity.
We are increasing capacity in our team because we are ramping up our activity. There are more projects to fund, learning to be shared and policy makers to influence.
Our new roles will suit people who like variety. It’s fast paced but enormously rewarding. When you go and meet the communities we work with, you will see and hear things that are likely to move and inspire you. We are looking for hard workers, those who can bring creativity and can make a difference. We hope that you will appreciate what a unique place Local Trust is. So don’t miss out on an opportunity to make your mark in what could be a career-defining role.
