The Scottish Wildlife Trust is a voluntary conservation and membership organisation, working to conserve all of Scotland’s wildlife through practical management, policy advocacy and campaigning. SWT manages around 120 wildlife reserves and is one of a network of 46 UK wildlife trusts.

Finance Project Manager

Reporting to the Director of Finance & Resources, the Finance Project Manager will be an enthusiastic and capable individual who will be working closely with our finance and broader staff team to help us identify finance system requirements and select a suitable system. You will then work closely with the chosen supplier’s consultants – again with our staff - to design and implement the new finance system.

As Finance Project Manager you will deal with day-to-day activities for the project - this is a hands-on role where you will be the central point for the project organisation and delivery.

You will develop and deliver a work plan with clear milestones, communicating and involving stakeholders and managing project documentation. You will work with the consultants and finance team to create the agreed system infrastructure and reports.

You will be a finance professional, ideally a qualified accountant with all round finance experience, strong process expertise and a talent for IT.

Ideally you will have project management experience but more important are your organisational and analytical skills. You will be a good communicator who is determined, resilient and proactive.

What we offer:

· An exciting opportunity and the chance to get involved with an interesting project

· The chance to work amongst a friendly, dedicated and sociable team

· Flexible working

· Bonus upon successful contract completion
