Our client, a social enterprise commercial property business, providing affordable workspace in and around SE London, is looking for an exeperienced finance professional to join their small team. The business is a true lifestyle business, and offers the opportunity to continue to do interesting, valuable work, and still have time for the other important things in your life. The role is 3 days p/w, but there is great flexibility around how that is structured (school hours are possible, for example). The role will largely be office based (in Greenwich) - there is some scope for working from home for at least some of the time. 

This is a hands on and broad role, which will work closely with the managing director, as well as the property management team, to manage and lead all financial matters.

  • Preparation of Annual Accounts (audited externally annually)
  • Company Secretarial Duties, including board meeting minutes
  • Supplier management and cash flow oversight 
  • Set up Direct Debit collection monthly starting point being an excel spreadsheet
  • Maintain DD system including set up of new instructions
  • Responsibilty for financial management of properties - eg issuing monthly/ quarterly rent invoices, new tenant documentation
  • Issue of monthly and quarterly rent invoices
  • Payroll
  • Working closely with the Property Manager to cover all financial aspects as necessary eg. utilities, calculation of periodic recharges 

The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant, with the ability to operate independently and flexibly. They will have excellent attention to detail and be motivated by working as part of a small values-driven team. They will be hands on, and able to multi-task across a variety of areas, covering ad hoc queries as they arise.
