We also run a busy venue, café and catering social enterprise.

Therefore, the successful candidate will be a qualified accountant, have extensive financial management experience ideally within the charity sector, strong commercial acumen, whilst being able to demonstrate support for our values.

We would also be interested in speaking to any finance consultants who would like to consider this role on a part time basis (2 days per week), with support from a Book-keeper.
We wish to recruit an enthusiastic and committed project worker to join our youth team and to become a part of one of our core projects – The Broomhouse Youth Befriending Project.
