The Woodland Trust is the UK's leading woodland conservation charity. We want to see a UK rich in native woods and trees, for people and wildlife. The Trust aims to engage and inspire people about woods and trees to help us meet our vision of creating, restoring and protecting woodland.
The Management Accountant will be responsible for the preparation of the Monthly Management Accounts, working within the budgeting and forecasting process and ensuring reporting is completed on time and distributed to the correct people.
Partnering key stakeholders across the Trust, the Management Accountant will advise budget holders in the preparation of annual budgets and ongoing forecasts challenging future financial decisions and the impact on the organisation as a whole.
There is the prospect that this position will become permanent at the end of the maternity cover.
You'll be CIMA qualified or part qualified at final level, with substantial experience in the development, production and review of monthly management accounts. With collaborative and pragmatic approach you'll be skilled at challenging and influencing budget holders, senior leaders and directors, explaining complex financial principles to improve budget management and working in partnership with them in the preparation of budgets and forecasts.
