Vacancy: Finance Manager

We are looking to recruit a Finance Manager to ensure that KWMC achieves its ambitions and is financially resilient.

37 hours a week
Salary negotiable from £40,000

Knowle West Media Centre is looking to recruit an exciting key role within this growing cultural organisation. We are looking for a Finance Manager who shares our values that include equity, integrity, and collaboration, and can help ensure we achieve our ambitions and are financially resilient.

KWMC is engaged in a diverse range of activities ranging from supporting emerging creative talent and young people, to citizen led housing, and supporting people to learn about digital making and the circular economy. The Finance Manager will be key to ensuring that  sustainability is central to the development of the organisation and that KWMC will continue to grow and move proportionally towards a reduced dependency on grant funding, replaced by self-generated income.

This vacancy has arisen due to the growth of the organisation.  The existing postholder will be staying on in a part-time capacity, focusing on grant funding, and will be available to provide support when required.  The Finance Manager will be additionally supported by two finance officers.
