Finance & Organisational Administrator


WWOOF UK are recruiting a part time Finance & Organisational Administrator for 2.5 days per week on a permanent contract.

For this varied role which is key to the running of the charity, we are seeking a confident, resourceful, self-starter with a proven track record in finances and organisational skills.  The role will involve some aspects of focused working alone (e.g. more finance related matters) and others of working more closely with the staff team. The role covers bookkeeping and all finance-related matters, data protection, pastoral care and pensions, policy development and many other aspects of administration. As such, the role requires excellent interpersonal and time-management skills, attention to detail, confidence in using online resources and plenty of initiative to effectively solve problems.
