  • Oversee OHOS’s financial management as a trustee, ensuring financial prudence and integrity;
  • Provide guidance to OHOS administrator who does book-keeping and input into OHOS’s accounting package Kashflow;
  • Work with the administrator and Chair to ensure proper secure procedures for authorising expenses, banking, invoices etc;
  • Prepare quarterly VAT returns, using Kashflow;
  • Prepare cash flow quarterly forecasts, ensuring adequate reserves across OHOS’ bank accounts as an account signatory;
  • Manage future project income and expenditure and its required reporting;
  • Provide financial input into the charity’s business plan: analyse income and expenditure and suggest improvements, advise on income generation;
  • Prepare annual accounts to draft stage and liaise with OHOS’ accountants Kirk Rice to obtain signed annual accounts for submission to Companies House/Charity Commission

An appreciation of contemporary art, an accountancy qualification and broad experience in financial management of a small charity, while not essential, would make you a strong candidate.
