Job Opportunity: Finance Officer

We are seeking an experienced, meticulous and digitally-savvy Finance Officer to join our small, dynamic and friendly team.


The Finance Officer is responsible for all aspects of the financial management of the Society. You will be responsible for the effective management of LSW’s finances and financial records and for ensuring that we are compliant with all relevant accounting standards. You will be responsible for producing our accounts and for providing financial information and advice to the CEO, Treasurer and the rest of the team.

You will enjoy operating independently with high levels of autonomy and engaging effectively with external partners, Fellows and suppliers, and you will take pride in making things run smoothly for the rest of the team. Our current Finance Officer is retiring in Summer 2022 so we are looking to appoint someone as soon as possible.

For candidates with up to one month’s notice period there will be a short handover period with the existing Finance Officer.

The Society has recently sharpened our focus on equality, diversity and inclusion. We want to ensure that the Society benefits from the widest range of talents and perspectives, and we’re building this in to all our work. We want to be a diverse Society and to reflect a diverse society. We are committed to making the Society welcoming and inclusive and encourage applications from under-represented groups.
