Finance and Governance Relationships Partner

  • Organisation: Active Partnerships
  • Salary: £40,000 - £45,000
  • Closing Date: 15 May 2022 | Finance

We are looking for someone with a specific focus on finance and governance. Reporting through to the Chief Executive Officer, you will help our vision to become a reality through 2 main roles:

  • To ensure effective management and development of the Active Partnerships company financial, non-financial and governance controls and procedures.
  • To support and promote the highest standards of financial management and governance across the Active Partnership network.

We need to be outward looking as well as inward facing. We need high-quality financial controls and processes as an organisation, but we know we can also make a difference by supporting the network and our partners to develop strong financial expertise and practice. The same goes for our governance. We need to ensure we maintain the highest standards of compliance, eg. with the UK Code of Sports Governance, and provide a strong level of support to our Board and sub-committees. There is also space and opportunity to support national and local colleagues in developing and influencing effective governance approaches which promote purposeful, inclusive and forward-looking ways of working in support of our vision.

Being a Qualified Accountant isn’t an absolute must but is highly desirable. We need someone with a proven track record in financial and risk management, payroll and tax administration, as well as strengths in fiscal budgeting, planning and reporting. A good understanding of the charity sector, sports funding and it's governance is desired but if you don’t have this experience then show us how your strong corporate governance knowledge could be applied to the role.
