We’re recruiting: Finance and Operations Manager

By Future-Fit

Future-Fit Foundation is seeking an exceptional individual with a passion for changing the status quo to join our team in London. This is an outstanding opportunity to work for a dynamic and entrepreneurial organisation as part of a growing team.

Who we are and what we do

Future-Fit Foundation is a registered charity founded in July 2013 and based in London. Our vision is a future in which everyone on Earth can prosper – and given the urgency and scale of today’s environmental and socioeconomic challenges, realising this vision will demand rapid and radical changes in the way our global economy works. If we are to do business differently, we must value business differently, and our mission is to create the tools that will make this possible.

Our work centres on developing the Future-Fit Business Benchmark, promoting its use, and building a partner ecosystem to accelerate its adoption. The Benchmark is a free-to-use, open source tool designed to equip business leaders and investors with the means to recognise, reward and guide breakthrough actions that create value both for companies and society as a whole.

This role

Supporting the executive team and board, the Finance and Operations Manager will be responsible for all financial aspects of the charity including internal financial procedures and processes, management and statutory accounting, and audit. The successful candidate will also be responsible for our human resources, office services, and contracts and compliance.

This role is flexible and part-time, requiring the equivalent of three days a week, but hours and days can be modified to suit the successful candidate. Currently our team is working from home, but we have an office near Spitalfields Market that the team will be expected to return to for at least part of their week in the future.

Required experience

You must be a qualified accountant with at least 5 years post qualification experience, preferably with a charity or not-for-profit, or else a small business. With experience of developing and managing financial systems and processes, you will also have a track record of leading a wide range of business service functions (HR, office services, compliance and contracts). You will have the ability to think strategically and yet still be prepared to be hands-on while prioritising and coping with multiple demands in a small but dynamic and growing organisation. You will have the ability to research and find pragmatic solutions to ad hoc challenges passed across to you by the executive team and be able to identify areas for development and improvement that you can lead on.

Our ideal candidate would have a degree in a related field, including business management, human resources management or law. A strong interest in environmental and societal change and sustainability issues would be desirable. You should be able to thrive in and contribute significantly to a small, fun, highly ambitious, entrepreneurial team.

Salary

The salary is competitive dependent on experience.

Your application

Please do not apply unless you are already able to live and work in the UK, as this role is not eligible for visa applications.

Applications close on 10th January 2021, interviews will take place in January and the successful applicant should be available to start in February 2021.

Interested candidates should send a CV and covering letter – or an alternative, creative self-descriptor – to: info@futurefitbusiness.org
