JOB: Finance Administration Officer

JOB: Finance and Administration Officer

Midaye is looking for a Finance and Administration Officer.

The post holder will be responsible for management of our busy office and basic finance work. You will undertake a full range of administration, maintaining excellent records. You will oversee our finance assistant, ensuring that Midaye’s income and expenditure is properly documented and authorised.

The post holder will be a central part of our vibrant, committed staff team – supporting our work in the community with e.g. single mothers, people with disabilities, and those with long term health problems. We work with members of all BME communities for whom English is an additional language – Ethiopian, Somali, Sudanese, Eritrean, Iraqi and others. Our clients are usually refugees, and we help them become healthier, better educated and more informed about services. Our activities empower, advocate for and support the most disadvantaged and isolated members of our community.

Midaye, although still a small organisation (16 staff), has grown rapidly over the past 5 years – we have developed partnerships with local authorities, NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups, and other charities; become known for our innovative community work on FGM, chronic health, and educational underachievement; and become valued contributors to local, regional and national policy in our areas of work. At the same time, we have retained our deep community links with some of the most marginalised groups in London.

If you would like to join us in providing our crucial community services, you must demonstrate that you are highly organised and efficient, able to prioritise and manage your workload and function calmly and effectively in a busy office. You will understand community organisations and be experienced in office systems and basic finance work. You will have excellent interpersonal skills and be confident with IT systems.

In return, you will gain the satisfaction of knowing that your work is making a difference to disadvantaged communities in London. Your role will be a crucial one within Midaye, and the work you do keeping us organised and on track will be appreciated by staff, volunteers, trustees and clients alike. You will have the opportunity to grow in your role, and to gain experience in all parts of running a busy charity. You will be part of a warm, friendly staff team who work towards Midaye’s goals with commitment and good humour.

All applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. Midaye is committed to equal opportunities and actively encourages applications from all sectors of the community. We shortlist based on competencies and not on race, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, or age.
