The Longleigh Foundation is a grant-making charity that was established, five years ago, by the social housing provider, Stonewater. We are dedicated to supporting the individuals and communities served by the social housing sector through the funding we distribute and support we provide.
Our social mission is to support how social housing providers enable transformation in the lives of their residents and communities, becoming the charity partner to the sector.
We are in the minority of funders that provide grants to individuals and organisations. This helps us to enable transformation a life at a time, a community at a time and, via our research grants, to influence change at a wider, societal level.
Over the last few years our work has expanded quite dramatically and we have a plan for the coming years that sees us wanting to develop more partners so our model can support more people and more communities.
As a result, we are looking to appoint a part-time Finance Administration Officer to support the Finance and Operations Manager in maintaining timely and accurate financial records.
This is a home-based role but some travel will be required when it is permitted and safe to do. We need someone who can work well from home and has the drive and motivation for our mission to demand great productivity of themselves. And, whilst you might be home-based, there is lots of ongoing engagement that you'll be able to have with our mission-driven and values-led team to keep you feeling energised and connected to something that has such amazing potential.
We are looking for someone who believes in our social mission and wants to be in a values-led working environment, where our values are truly lived. Our ideal candidate will radiate a personable approach. You'll recognise the importance of accurate data entry and great administrative skills. We are looking for someone who will embrace being a key part of a small team where ideas are welcomed and will certainly be heard. For the right person, we're a place where you can develop and have the opportunity to play a key part in how we continually improve all that we do.
You may not have worked for a charity or in finance before, but to be suitable for this role, you'll need to be self-motivated, willing to learn, have a good attention to detail, have good standard of literacy, numeracy and IT skills and be able to process financial records accurately.
