Crimestoppers is a charity which gives people the power to speak up about crime targeting them, their communities and the most vulnerable people in society. Our reporting line and website gives the public the confidence and ability to pass on vital information in total anonymity. Every day approximately 1800 people contact us about crimes including knives, drugs, child exploitation and fraud.

We currently have a vacancy for a Part-time Finance Assistant (20 hours per week), £12,000 per annum (plus benefits), Wallington, Surrey.

This role is part of a small Finance team, who are responsible for managing the organisation's accounts. The post holder, while having their own duties, will be required to work closely with and support the other members of the Finance team to ensure the accounts are accurate, timely and helpful to colleagues throughout the organisation.

The primary responsibility for the post holder will be to manage the purchase ledger, ensuring invoices are recorded accurately and authorised on time to meet our regular payments to suppliers. Additionally, the role will also involve undertaking periodic reconciliations of supplier ledger accounts, investigating variances, assisting with the preparation of the Charity's quarterly VAT returns and accounting for all bank transactions related to supplier payments.

The ideal candidate may well have experience of working in a Finance function, preferably with accounts payable. However, we are open to applicants who are numerate and comfortable working with figures. Just as important for the role is that the applicant is a team player who is willing to help with any task, will support colleagues with whatever needs to be done, has a curious mindset and enjoys the idea of working in our charity.

The role requires someone who is able to demonstrate excellent 'attention to detail' and high levels of accuracy when undertaking work such as data entry and the preparation of financial reports. The successful candidate is likely to be a good communicator who is approachable and can build strong working relationships based on a commitment to customer service.

Crimestoppers is committed to equal opportunities and encourages anyone to apply if they believe they have the skills and experience required to carry out the role.

This is a part-time role allowing the post holder to work flexible either over 5 days or 4 and one day working from home.

The successful applicant will be required to complete a DBS check.

No agencies please.

TO APPLY: Please submit your CV and a covering letter, outlining how you meet the requirements of the role
