Closing date: 24 June 2021
Job Type: Paid
Location: Home-based with occasional meetings in Basingstoke/Oxford/Warwickshire area.
We are an agile social enterprise looking for a qualified Finance Manager to manage and operate our existing finance function. Working flexibly from home, you will perform a core role in our small, friendly team helping to maintain financial stability and control as we focus on our mission to deliver successful projects across a range of settings globally. You will report directly to the CEO, and work closely with the Business Operations Manager, who sit within a wider management / operational team of seven people. The role is advertised at 15 hours per week and the preference would be for these to be worked over 3 or 4 days, however this can be flexed in line with the cyclical nature of some of the finance activities.
About Primary Care International (PCI)
PCI was launched as a social enterprise in 2014. We are a small and friendly ‘virtual’ team comprised of a team of committed part-time staff supported by a Board of Directors.
PCI provides training, learning and consultancy for healthcare workers in low- and middle-income countries, working in partnership with the WHO, UNHCR, Ministries of Health and NGOs. To date we have worked in more than 20 countries across Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Central America in a diverse range of settings with a focus on quality of primary healthcare for all whether in a busy urban setting or a fragile humanitarian or refugee setting.
This is a new role created to split out activity from our existing Finance & Operations Manager whose role will be evolving. This new role will have full management & operational responsibility for all finance processes including budgeting, cashflow, VAT, Payroll, and overall management of our bank accounts and treasury. The Finance Manager will also manage the relationship with our outsourced bookkeeping team, as well as coordinating with the outsourced audit team for the completion of our annual statutory accounts. A key part of this role will also be to provide financial advice & guidance to our CEO and board of directors, seeking input from our non-executive Finance Director when necessary.
Whilst you will be well supported by the CEO and be able to access technical advice and inputs from our non-Executive Finance Director and from our Accountants, this role performs a stand-alone finance function (as reflected in the job description below). The role will therefore suit a proactive self-starter who is confident and happy working independently on their own initiative. Back-up support and absence cover will be provided by the Business Operations Manager. This is a rewarding role in a busy, complex and evolving operating environment which calls for a quick thinking and adaptable individual with excellent attention to detail and rigour.
Bookkeeping, invoicing, expenses and treasury (approx. 25% of role)
Payroll (approx. 5% of role)
Budgeting, reforecasting, cashflow, ad hoc financial reporting (approx. 45% of role)
Statutory accounts (approx. 10% of role)
Finance strategy (approx. 15% of role)

Please note that you must have the right to live and work, and be resident, in the UK. With regret we are unable to accept applications from non-residents and this role must be performed from the UK.
Equality and diversity are at the core of PCI values.
