The Access Project is an innovative education charity that helps bright young people from disadvantaged backgrounds beat the odds and gain places at top universities. Our volunteers are trained and supported to be effective tutors who work with our students for an hour a week to raise their grades. In addition, a dedicated school-based staff member mentors the students so they have the knowledge and support to make strong university applications. Our results show this approach works.
The Access Project currently works in London, the East and West Midlands and Bradford. We have a growing team (currently c.60 staff) working in schools and regional offices (when lockdown restrictions are not in place).
The Access Project currently outsources its accounting function. In light of recent and planned future growth, we have decided to bring that function in-house from summer 2021. We are therefore looking to recruit a Finance Manager who will join a small finance team and play a key role in the successful transition from outsourced to in-house provision. You will be in a unique position to shape a new role to best support the charity.
The Finance Manager will report to the Finance Director.
Work with the Finance Director to develop a forward-looking finance function that provides accurate data, reports and analysis that can be used inform decision-making across the organisation.
