We’re Recruiting! Finance Manager

LASS (responding to the challenges of HIV and health) is 30 years old this year. In that time, it has seen the environment around HIV treatment and prevention change radically.

The task list includes:

  • Maintain financial procedures and financial controls
  • Ensure finance reporting and accounting is managed in a timely manner and in keeping with all necessary financial protocols
  • Administer and monitor bank accounts and payments
  • Income management – invoicing, record keeping
  • Payroll
  • Assist with the financial aspects of bids, grant applications and project proposals
  • Annual returns
  • Prepare accounts for audit or independent review at year end and liaise with the external company providing these services
  • Use appropriate finance software packages to produce report and manage accounts – we use SAGE

There is the opportunity to work flexibly and to work-from-home on occasion.
