The Wildlife Trusts are working to bring wildlife back to our land and seas and make nature a part of life, for everyone. We’re helping to make life better – for wildlife, for people and for future generations.

Our vision is a world where people are close to nature, with land and seas rich in wildlife. But the climate and the natural world are in crisis. Much of our wildlife has disappeared and our wild places are becoming smaller and disconnected from each other. This contributes to the climate emergency and, at the same time, means wildlife is less able to adapt to the changes in climate that we are already seeing. Across society, people are suffering from lack of access to, and connection with, nature. We urgently need nature to recover.

We are determined to reconnect people everywhere to the natural world and empower people to take action for nature’s recovery.

The Wildlife Trusts is a federated movement of charities dedicated to this vision and driven by our beliefs. Together we have 850,000 members, 35,000 volunteers and 2,000 staff across the UK, Alderney and the Isle of Man. We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility.

We are currently looking for an experienced Accountant to join us on a fixed term contract to cover maternity leave.

The post holder will be responsible for the preparation and analysis of management accounting information and financial support to budget managers and Trustees. You will also prepare budgets and forecasts.

We are looking for someone with the following:

Experience in a similar role, ideally within a charity.

CCAB (part-qualified) or AAT qualified, with experience of preparing management accounts and compiling budgets.

Strong numeracy skills with the ability to analyse and explain complex financial information.

Strong IT skills, specifically using Microsoft Excel.

Good time management skills and the ability to prioritise workloads.

The Wildlife Trusts are wild about inclusion! We know wildlife will benefit from our people being as diverse as nature is, so we particularly encourage applications from people who are underrepresented within our sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities.

As a Disability Confident employer, we are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post. Please let us know if you require any adjustments to make our recruitment process more accessible.

Closing date: 24 June 2020
