We are working with One Small Thing, who are looking for an experienced Finance Assistant to join their busy, collaborative team. Initially part time this role could grow to full time as the organisation expands.

One Small Thing has a commitment to systemic change for women and their children in the justice system, which has inspired them to build Hope Street, a brand-new, purpose-built residential community-based service, designed in collaboration with women, for justice-involved women and their children in Hampshire, and offering them access to education, practical and therapeutic support in safe, respectful trusting environment.

This is a great opportunity to be part of a brand-new team working closely to bring this new and exciting provision to life, and a vital role providing essential administrative support to the finance team, the facilities team as well as office management support across the wider team. 

With previous experience in a busy office environment, your experience will include:

  • Purchase requisition, purchase orders and invoicing, reconciliation of supplier statements, bank reconciliation and preparing journals, payroll support expenses and preferred supplier account set up.
  • Rent management including documenting resident moves and posting receipts paid by local authorities.
  • Managing office supplies, and provision of facilities support in line with relevant Health & safety standards.
  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to work under pressure and to tight deadlines, you will be able to manage a varied workload and prioritise activities and responses in order of importance. 
  • A knowledge and understanding of the Data Protection Act 2018 and GDPR Regulations 2018 to ensure the appropriate management of personal and sensitive personal data. 
  • An understanding of trauma and its long-term effects on a person’s behaviours, self-esteem, confidence, and ability to trust others, plus knowledge and understanding of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

This is an exciting opportunity for an organised Finance Assistant who has exceptional IT skills including databases, excellent Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint experience and ideally with case management systems for data and outcome recording, you will have outstanding attention to detail and accurate record keeping.

Please note that there is a requirement for a standard DBS check for this role.
