The Scotland Malawi Partnership is recruiting for a Finance Officer to assist its work inspiring the people and organisations of Scotland to be involved with Malawi in an informed, coordinated and effective way for the benefit of both nations. The post-holder should have demonstrable prior experience in bookkeeping, statutory reporting, financial management and oversight, have experience supporting organisational administration, and be agile and responsive in their work.

The post-holder will assist the Chief Executive and Deputy Chief Executive in the management and maintenance of office, administrative and financial systems within the Scotland Malawi Partnership, in order to sustain the ongoing smooth and cost-effective running of the organisation. This will include: management of all accounting/bookkeeping/financial and management reporting; managing all receipts and payments of funds; preparing for annual accounts; managing annual returns; managing the independent examination of accounts; managing the budgeting process; servicing the Audit and Finance Committee; supporting SMP’s sister organisation MaSP with financial reporting and budgeting; taking responsibility for health and safety systems; and maintaining general office administration systems.

The Partnership is an equal opportunities employer. This is a flexible post, with the post-holder able to choose his/her hours, working around other commitments wherever possible.

This is a fixed-term position in the first instance, running to March 2023. However, as with all SMP staff positions, it is conditional on continued Scottish Government SMP core funding. We will have indicative core funding for 2020-23 but this is finalised in annual contracts.

The post-holder is required, at the time of application, to have the right to work in the UK
