Beloved Rabbits are entering a new phase of ambitious development, that seeks to improve the charity’s financial strength as we work towards a three-stage plan that will culminate in the opening of a new purpose designed rabbit welfare services centre. We've launched a Fundraising Strategy for the period 2022 - 2024, and our success in securing the financial stability we need to provide for the rabbits in need in Scotland is underpinned by reliable financial reporting and budget management - especially against the challenges of a cost of living crisis.
We are looking for new members of our management team to take on voluntary roles to help us with this.
The Financial Manager is a critical role as part of these plans.
As our Financial Manager you will:
- work closely with our Bookkeeper volunteer to record all our income and expenditure correctly via recognised Bookkeeping methodologies using online accountancy software (Intuit Quickbooks)
- assist the Board of Trustees with some simple monthly finance reports.
- assist with the collation of OSCR Annual Returns
- develop financial forecasting and budget plans
- assist our Fundraising Trustee and Fund Action Co-ordinators with the provision of financial details for grant applications.
