A small Energy & Consumer Advice Charity based in central London is seeking an interim Systems / Project Accountant for an interesting new role.

The role is likely to last 6-8 months and will be for 3 days per week.

The charity currently outsources their accounts to an LLP, of which the charity is a member, and the main task of this role is to successfully transition the accounting function and all accounting procedures back in-house to the charity.

The role will involve:

-Overseeing bringing the charity’s accounts function in-house

-Completing the metrics for the accounting system. I.e Transaction volumes, capabilities (including matters such as VAT, payroll input, payment options, BACS, credit card receipts, bank file input for reconciliation etc)

-Improving the Management Reporting capability

-Assessing the chart of accounts, analysis structure and coding to reduce spreadsheet preparation

-Recommendation and implementation of an appropriate accounting system with help from the IT department (Most likely Sage, SUN, Quickbooks etc)

-Training of new staff prior to the go live date

The successful candidate will:

-Be a fully-qualified accountant (ACCA, ACA, CIMA etc)

-Have prior experience in similar project and systems focused accounting roles in a comparable organisation

-Be highly technical, analytical and flexible by nature

This would best suit an experienced charity accountant with a strong history of interim project and systems work. Applicants who are available at short notice would be ideal.

Please send your CV for immediate consideration.
