SBA The Solicitors’ Charity was founded in 1858 and is focused on solicitors, former solicitors and dependants who are in personal financial need (often as a result of ill-health). In recent years, the charity has distributed over £1m annually in grants and interest-free loans to its beneficiaries.
The team is six strong, consisting of both full-time and part-time employees, plus a national network of volunteer caseworkers, all of whom are solicitors. The charity owns its own premises, beside Wandsworth Common railway station, which is served by a frequent service from Victoria (12 minutes) via Clapham Junction (3 minutes). There is also private parking available.
We are seeking a new Finance/Compliance Manager & Company Secretary on the retirement of the existing job-holder at the end of March 2017. This is a part-time post, 21 hours a week. We are flexible on how this is spread through the week, but working from home is not envisaged.
This is a small office and a willingness to share in general office duties, especially when colleagues are absent, is most important.
Salary: £42,000-£47,000 (pro-rata) depending on experience, with a generous contributory pension scheme and 6 weeks paid annual leave plus public holidays (all pro rata).
Deadline for applications: 10am on Monday 9 January 2017, by way of a CV and covering letter which should illustrate how you fall within the person specification and should not exceed one page. Hard copy or email are both acceptable but must arrive before the deadline since the sift will take place immediately. Selected applicants will be called for interview, at SBA’s offices, on Thursday 3 or Friday 4 February 2017.
