About the charity

Allergy UK (the operating name of the British Allergy Foundation) is the leading charity advocating on behalf of and supporting the estimated 21 million people living with allergy in the UK.

Over the last 30 years we have provided a range of advice, education, information, and support to those living with allergy, healthcare professionals and the public. We have been successful in achieving changes in legislation at a national level through our advocacy work and gradually raising the profile of the seriousness of allergy. As awareness of allergy increases so does the need to do more for the allergic community and our mission is for everyone in the UK to take allergy seriously.

This is an exciting time to join Allergy UK and albeit we are a small team we have ambitious plans for the future. Our 5-year strategic plan for the Charity is focused on increasing our fundraising activities, diversifying income streams whilst still fostering commercial awareness through our trading subsidiary. We are looking for a Finance Business Manager, preferably with experience in the Charity Sector, to join our Executive Leadership Team and be a part of our success story.

Reporting to the CEO, you will have an integral role in driving change across the organisation, over-seeing the end-to-end finance operations and driving continuous improvements in account processes. This role will over-see the development, use and management of data across the Charity and it’s trading subsidiaries.

The successful candidate will be a fully qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA, etc.) who has led on the production of monthly management accounts and has strong forecasting and trend analysis skills. The Finance Business Manager will also complete preparation for end-of-year accounts and lead on the year-end audit process.

The position requires a proactive and adaptable approach to handle the day-to-day activities, in an efficient and flexible manner, where delivery of high-quality information is key. You should be able to work independently and be able to communicate effectively across the organisation, with stakeholders at varying levels of seniority. You will be able to multi-task and prioritise your work accordingly, whilst producing accurate, complex reconciliations and working to tight deadlines.

We are looking for a committed individual with financial expertise who can support our charity in the successful delivery of key programmes of activity. This is a unique opportunity to play a significant role in an increasingly high-profile charity and we are inviting applications from individuals who can clearly demonstrate strong financial skills including financial, operational business evaluation and analysis.

We offer a competitive salary, 3% employer and 5% employee contribution to a pension scheme, free car parking, 28 days’ annual leave and access to an on-line portal with discounts including high street stores and restaurants.
