Location: Bath

Salary: £ 35,310, pro-rata 0.6 FTE

Term:  part time 22.5 hours/week, permanent

Start Date: September 2018

We are looking for an experienced Finance Manager to join RICE at an important and exciting time of growth for the organisation and to support the charity in all aspects of financial planning and management. Our current Finance Manager is retiring.

This role will be key to achieving our strategic growth through 2019 and beyond. You will lead on all aspects of financial planning, management and reporting at RICE. You will also be responsible for processing all day to day financial transactions including a small monthly payroll.  As a member of the senior management team you will work closely with colleagues across the organisation to deliver strategy and will participate in Board of Trustee and Finance and Audit Committee meetings.

In particular, we are looking for proven experience in a senior finance role, ideally in a small charity/not-for-profit company (c. £1m turnover). You will have both a strategic and operational ‘hands on’ approach and will enjoy working cross-organisationally with a multi-disciplinary team, and will have the ability to work on your own to deliver to deadlines. Your interest in health and research charities and/or previous experience of working with people with dementia or in the older age group will be an advantage.

RICE is an independent charity and an internationally renowned centre for dementia research, diagnosis and treatment. Our research aims to improve life for people with dementia and their families and carers, and to find drug and non-drug treatments for people with conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other diseases predominantly affecting older people; our Memory Clinic and allied services also provide support to patients, families and carers. In 2015 we embarked on an ambitious new phase of development that includes plans to significantly increase our clinical and academic research programme. We work closely with the Universities of Bath, Bristol and other research institutions, both nationally and internationally.

Applicants must have the right to live and work in the United Kingdom, and all employees of RICE are required to undergo a DBS check.
