Closing date: 5 September

The role: 

We are looking for an outstanding candidate to provide a key role in the finance team for National Numeracy. You will work closely with the Head of Finance to manage the financial procedures for the charity, building relationships across the organisation to help ensure that the financial systems are robust and understood by all. You will be involved with helping teams across external relations and projects understand how the finance function can help them deliver the best value interventions and campaigns for our beneficiaries.
