£19.00 per hour (up to 20 hours per week)

Deadline: Friday 9th March 2018 - 17.00 pm. Interviews week of 19th March 2018.

The London Irish Centre charity runs the largest welfare service for Irish people outside of Ireland. Each year we work with thousands of people in London to improve their income, housing, access to health, and social inclusion opportunities.

From the outset the London Irish Centre charity has always existed to support the Irish community in London, and while the needs of each generation of Irish people in the city are different, our core mission remains the same.

Each day we work with a cross-section of the entire community, assisting those who are experiencing crises in housing, debt, employment, or health concerns, as well as providing necessary support for both older Irish emigrants, and new arrivals to the city. We provide this assistance through our drop-in advice clinic, online support, outreach and befriending visits, our day centre and wellbeing services, including clubs and social groups across London.

The Finance Officer will take the lead on administering the Charitys accounting operations as well as providing financial and administrative support to the Operations Manager, colleagues, clients and stakeholders. This includes managing accounting activities, including bank reconciliations, account payable and accounts receivable, and assisting with the yearly audit process. The finance officer will also be expected to prepare monthly, quarterly and annual financial reports. The finance officer may also be expected to be involved with the annual budget process.
