AboutUEL Students' Union provides advice, representation and activities for more than 13,000 members studying at two campuses in Docklands and Stratford. Both campuses have excellent transport links and a free inter-campus bus. We're currently undergoing a major transformation which has resulted in a restructuring of our staff team. We're currently recruiting eight new staff.
It’s a challenging but very exciting time to join UEL Students’ Union. We’re part-way through a journey towards being a more effective and more relevant students’ union which truly represents and supports our hyper-diverse membership. After a restructuring exercise, we’re hiring staff for nine new posts.
The head of finance and administration will lead the strategic and operational finance function to ensure effective financial management. This will involve modernising the service offer, systems, policies and procedures, including bringing back in house the accounting and payroll functions. The postholder will play a key role in developing the financial literacy and skills of staff, student officers and student groups.
The successful candidate will be CCAB/CIMA qualified or CCAB/CIMA part-qualified with significant experience in a finance role including preparation of budgets, monthly management accounts, forecasts, year-end financial statements and other reports. This will preferably be in a charity, but this isn’t essential.
