Financial Accountant

The Job

Over the last few years, we’ve really grown as an organisation and the great stuff we are doing means we’re getting bigger and better all the time. For that reason, it’s time to bring in a Financial Accountant to help us out with all the exciting work we do! 

If the opportunity sounds good and you become our new Financial Accountant, a big part of your day to day will be financial modelling, budgeting and forecasting, and generally overseeing and preparing management accounts for both Capacity, its subsidiaries and some of the amazing organisations we work with. We need someone who can design and implement internal control policies as well as work closely with the rest of the Finance team to help them progress and develop. This is important for our organisational and financial resilience to make sure we carry on doing what we do best … delivering the greatest impact. 

You will be the right-hand support for our Finance Director which means that sometimes you will have to deputise for them and be confident presenting complex financial information at Executive and Board level. Your role will be varied and include everything from coordinating audit processes, to managing day-to-day operations of the Finance team. You will be a pro at identifying trends and engaging with stakeholders to share your thoughts and learning about us as an organisation. Our organisation is pretty small, and we all share a commitment to getting stuck in and getting our hands dirty to help each other out.

If we do say so ourselves, our team is pretty awesome! We don’t believe in perfection but we do believe in doing. We are on the ground, doing the graft and doing the listening. We’re easy going, we take our work seriously but not ourselves. With this in mind, we’re looking for a real team-player to work across a bunch of diverse projects with Capacity’s existing team.

We’re proud to promote a learning culture where people are encouraged to be open and honest about what’s working and what’s not. Hey, we’re only human, we won’t always get it right, but we want you to feel like you can ask for help and guidance whenever it’s needed. 

Overall, we are looking for a brilliant, hardworking person who’s not just amazing at the important finance work. What’s really important to us is that you’re in it for the right reasons – you’re interested in working with us because you want public services to be the best they can be for the real people at the end of them. And don’t worry if you haven’t worked in the sector before, as long as your heart is in it, we will show you the ropes.
