Full Time
Finance Administrator
£17,000 pro rata
Permanent, Part time (18.5 hours to be worked flexibly)

The Wildlife Trusts believe that everyone deserves to live a healthy, wildlife-rich natural world and that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of wildlife in their daily lives.

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims, we are not judgemental, and we are inclusive. Our society is divided, and The Wildlife Trusts want to reduce, not increase, that division. We are aware that whilst our beneficiaries are reflective of our communities, our staff and trustees are less so. Therefore, we are committed to addressing this.

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic Finance Administrator to help provide support to our finance team. You will be responsible for ensuring the accurate processing of transactions in accordance with statutory regulations, standing financial orders and accounting good practice. Processing purchase orders, invoices, expense claims and credit cards, you will work closely with budget holders and other non finance staff. Providing support to our Legacy Admin service is another key feature of the role.

The successful candidate will ideally have some experience of working in finance. Knowledge/experience of purchase ledger, sales ledger, account reconciliation and VAT accounting is desirable but not essential. With a methodical approach to work, you will be familiar with computerised accounts and Microsoft Excel, be process orientated and numerate, with a high level of attention to detail.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who is looking to progress a career in finance, therefore a willingness to learn and develop will be key.

The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement of 800,000 members, 43,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff across the UK dedicated to our vision and driven by our beliefs. There are 36 Wildlife Trusts in England, four in Wales and Trusts for Scotland, Northern Ireland, Alderney and the Isle of Man. The Wildlife Trusts have an unmatched presence on the ground helping to inspire millions of people about wildlife every year and managing nearly 100,000 hectares of land. Being part of The Wildlife Trust movement enables you to make a real difference and we look for people who share our values.

The Wildlife Trusts is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or belief, marital status, or pregnancy and maternity.
