Part time

Racing Welfare is a national charity supporting horseracing’s current and retired workforce.  We are seeking a management accountant with a ‘can-do’ attitude to join our friendly finance team based in Newmarket.

It’s an exciting time to be joining the organisation; our charity has never been more needed by the industry, and after a period of rapid growth we have great plans for the future.  

On a day-to-day basis you will be:

  • Preparing financial information for the board, senior leadership team and budget holders, including quarterly management accounts;
  • Taking ownership of all balance sheet items, ensuring all are regularly reconciled;
  • Helping colleagues across the organisation, including regularly reconciling our accounts system with that of the welfare and fundraising teams;
  • Line managing three experienced accounts assistants;
  • Work closely with (and reporting into) the Finance and Operations Director, including assisting with the annual audit and budget setting;

You will be offered a competitive salary, employer pension scheme, 25 days annual leave (pro-rata) plus bank holidays, tickets to almost all race meetings at Jockey Club racecourses, twice-yearly all-staff training and team building events along with a range of other employee wellbeing initiatives.

As a charity, wellbeing is at the forefront of all we do. We aim to be a leading employer in the industry and make sure everyone at Racing Welfare has the opportunity to thrive.

You will be a proactive and organised individual with a naturally analytical approach and having a strong eye for detail. You will be a fully- or part-qualified accountant with a recognised accountancy body and have experience working in a similar role within a charity along with a good understanding of charity SORP.

The closing date is Friday 10th February. We reserve the right to bring forward the closing date if we receive a large number of suitable applications.

This is a part-time post, based in our Newmarket office with hybrid working options. Infrequent travel throughout the UK may be required.  

Salary: £40,000 FTE
