Job Description

We have an excellent Finance Officer who leads on much of our day-to-day finance activities up to Trial Balance on SAGE 50 and, increasingly, to Management Accounts level. Our Finance Officer (FO) works on a full-time basis variously from our two galleries and from home. We need additional expert support to our FO's on-going development while holding the high-level Finance brief and bringing fresh thinking to our management team.

The Specifics:

  • Overview of management accounts and guidance and support for the Finance Officer in all aspects of the FO's work
  • Lead on budget planning
  • Filing quarterly VAT returns and any matters around partial exemption
  • Work with the Finance Officer on Arts Council England quarterly and annual returns
  • Prepare papers for our five-a-year trustee board meetings and attend as required
  • Year-end review and assembly of documents and support for the audit process
  • Making Museums & Galleries tax relief claims annually and supporting on Gift Aid claims
  • Be our first point of contact for our auditors
  • Sound and clear business advice to the operational and commercial team at the gallery

The Successful Tender will:

  • Quote for services on an hourly and daily rate price
  • Describe availability of time to devote to supporting the FO and the gallery
  • Describe how availability of time can flex with key reporting cycles: Arts Council England returns; board meetings; year-end; budget-setting
  • Describe how the brief will be fulfilled - remotely and at premises
  • List the experience and qualifications that are held by the tenderer and that are relevant to supporting the in-house finance function of a small visual arts charity
