CHICKS is a national children's charity providing free respite breaks to children aged 8–15 from all over the UK who would really benefit from a break from their home lives.

The charity began in 1992. In 2017 we celebrated our 25th anniversary year! Since 1992, we have provided over 15,600 children with a much needed break.

After an incredibly exciting period and an imminent move to a new office location in Buckfastleigh, we are seeking a Finance Manager for a new role within an expanding finance team.

Our ideal Finance Manager is someone who can:

Monitor the day–to–day financial operation of the charity, such as payroll, invoicing, and other transactions.

Prepare monthly profit, loss and balance sheets for trustee reports.

Prepare and maintain rolling 2–year budgets and forecasting

Tax and VAT reporting and processing.

Preparation of year end and statutory accounts.

Conducting internal financial audits.

Analyse accounting activity to identify inaccuracies and opportunities.

Manage the payroll process including provisions for workplace pensions.

Understand and adhere to all financial and accounting regulations and legislation.

To be successful you will need to be:

Either CCAB qualified, AAT qualified or qualified by experience

A self–starter who is proactive and with a can–do attitude.

A team player who can build relationships across the team and be adaptable.

A good communicator who can work under pressure, prioritise and adapt to change.

Analytical with an attention for detail.

Deadline orientated with the ability to stick to time constraints.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced person with a strong work ethic looking to work in a fast–paced environment. Due to the location of our office and retreats, a full UK Driving Licence would be beneficial.

What's important to us?

We believe every child has the right to make positive childhood memories. A CHICKS break inspires new confidence and gives children the chance to have fun, enjoy new experiences and relax. More than anything, it gives them the chance to just be children.

Why would you want to work with us?
