Vacancy-Finance & Business Support 


Strong and pro-active financial management is a pre-requisite in supporting Carers Link to achieve our vision and for the long-term sustainability of the organisation.

As such, the role of Finance & Business Support is a vital ‘cog in the wheel’ through strategic leadership of our financial management, reporting and accounting systems as well as the day-to-day management of our finance functions. You will have responsibility for payroll, financial contracts, invoice payments, expense claims, preparing monthly management accounts and of course working with our auditors at year-end.You will also provide some limited Business Support to the Operational Manager, CEO and Board of Directors, helping when necessary with Governance, HR and Activity/Event Co-ordination.

What we are looking for

We are looking for someone that wants to use their skill with numbers within an organisation that looks to make a difference in the lives of local families. You will have strong numeracy and analysis skills, a keen eye for detail and a high standard of accuracy. Whilst you will work as part of a team, you need to be self-motivated, able to concentrate in a busy office or work alone from home and be able to work to deadlines.

Importantly, we are TRUSTED by local carers so would also like to hear from you if you support our Values (carerslink.org.uk/vision-and-values) and especially if you have a positive, energetic and ‘can do’ approach!

What we offer

The staff at Carers Link are or have been carers ourselves, so we recognise the importance of a good balance between work and home life and will try and support staff in a variety of ways. Most notably, we offer hybrid working with staff working from home (if they prefer) 2-3 days each week as well as flexible working such as compressed hours or other such arrangements.

Staff receive 28 flexible annual leave days plus 4 fixed days at Christmas/New Year. In addition, staff receive 1 day per quarter to support your personal wellbeing, giving a total leave allowance of 36 days. This rises by 5 days after 5 years. (All pro-rata for part-time posts.)

We contribute 5% of salary towards your pension, provide training and development and generally try and be as supportive and welcoming as we can!
