Established in 2009, Dementia Adventure is a UK charity that is changing the way people think about dementia.
We believe in thinking differently about dementia. Our positive focus is on the individual and not on the condition. We look at what people can do, not what they can’t, concentrating on ‘the possible’. With the right support, people can continue to do the things they have always enjoyed, keep active and remain a valued member of society.
Our work aims to enable people living with dementia to get outdoors, connect with nature, themselves and their community, and keep a sense of adventure in their lives – whatever ‘adventure’ may mean to the individual.
We do this by offering supported dementia holidays, free training for friends and family supporting somebody with dementia, training organisations and through research.
We are seeking a Financial Accountant to join our small team on a part-time basis, working 15 hours per week. We are a national charity but are based in Essex so we are happy for you to work with us in the office or from home.
You will be responsible for analysing and managing the growing income and expenditure at Dementia Adventure, ensuring we are financially sustainable and that we have robust, effective and efficient systems and financial practices in place, which meet our needs and the requirements of regulators, customers, donors and funders and are in support of Dementia Adventure’s charitable mission and objectives.
We are interested in finding the right person for our team and in particular are seeking the following skills and experience:
An understanding of charitable organisations and the regulations and law associated with charity finance
Knowledge of VAT legislation with regard to the provision of holidays and the implications of business/non-business income would be useful
Strong practical experience in financial reporting, forecasting, cash flow management, budgeting and controls
Excellent maths and computer skills, particularly with Excel and Xero accounting software
Analytical and logical problem-solving skills
A ‘solutions-focused’ approach
A good understanding of business and charity accounts
2-3 years’ experience in a similar role for an organisation of similar or larger size and turnover
