Role: Finance and Compliance Officer (BBO Let’s Get Working)
Hours: Monday to Friday (37.5 hours per week)
Location: Herne Bay/Thanet/Ashford
Salary: £24,000

Would you like the opportunity to join Social Enterprise Kent (SEK), a Community Interest Company (CIC) working with individuals and communities all over Kent and Medway? SEK supports those most in need. We work with people who are unemployed, have mental health needs, are experiencing social isolation, or those who need some support and training to help them improve their skills and prospects. This means that all of our operational activities are guided by a commitment to maximising our positive social impact for our target market – local people, communities and businesses.

Does this sound like something you’d like to be involved with? SEK has a fantastic role available for someone to work on our Let’s Get Working, Building Better Opportunities contract as Finance and Compliance Manager. This project is funded by the Big Lottery and the European Social Fund. This full time role will involve working 60% on this project, and 40% on other SEK projects. You will need to be flexible, working in our Thanet, Herne Bay and Ashford locations, and therefore will need to have access to a car and a driving license.

To be considered for the role, you must have at least AAT level 3 (or equivalent), experience of working in a busy financial/compliance environment where attention to detail is paramount. You must be an excellent planner, extremely organised and logical. You will also have empathy with the clients and objectives of SEK. This is a joint role between finance and compliance, and therefore part of the role is reviewing paperwork for accuracy and putting action plans in place for improvement. Experience of working on an ESF programme would be an advantage (but not essential).

You will be using Sage for finance, and therefore experience of this package is preferred.

This is a fixed term contract until December 2019 (but there may be scope for this to be extended beyond this with other SEK projects).

To apply, please go to the SEK website,, and look through the detailed Job Description.
Please fill in the Equal Opportunities Form and send it with your CV and covering letter.

Closing date: 18th July 2017
