Full Description

How would you like to lead an accountancy team and use your financial skills to assist voluntary organisations across Merseyside with their accounts?

For over a century, LCVS has been working to improve the well-being of individuals and communities in Merseyside through supporting and encouraging charitable giving and voluntary action and by bringing people, organisations and resources together.

In recent years, LCVS has supported thousands of organisations by delivering practical and accessible services to the voluntary sector including financial, accounting and payroll administration services.

Main Purpose of the role:

• As Lead Community Accountant you will oversee the delivery of community accountancy services to boards and executives of voluntary organisations.

• You’ll maintain financial records, prepare year-end financial statements and collate funding data on behalf of LCVS’s charity clients.

• You’ll directly support LCVS’s accountancy clients by delivering financial advice, information and guidance.

• You’ll manage the members of the community accountancy team, develop standardised systems representing best practice and deliver training as required.

Who we are looking for:

LCVS are looking for someone to lead the team in their next phase of delivery and development; the role will require up-to-date technical knowledge and an ability to schedule the work of the team to meet external deadlines.

The role would suit someone with a practice background who is looking to apply their skill and experience in a new direction, working closely with clients and assisting them to achieve the goals of their organisation.

Alternatively, candidates may have extensive experience of working in the sector, having gained technical expertise which they feel could be applied to this exciting role.
