Finance and Fundraising Administrator

SCM is looking for a well organised and friendly Finance and Fundraising Administrator to join our team.

SCM is a community of students, past and present, and it is community that is at the heart of who we are and how we do things. Wherever students find us and however they engage, they are our purpose; supporting them to be, and, where they are open to it, to grow in their lives and faith.

We are deeply committed to an inclusive, progressive and radical approach to the Christian faith and we are a movement for today, which means campaigning on current issues of concern such as the refugee crisis, the arms trade and food injustice, and modelling LGBTQ+ celebration and pushing the church to do the same.

SCM is a small charity with a strategic plan for growth and sustainability, of which effective fundraising and financial management is a key part. We are looking for a Finance and Fundraising Administrator who will provide high quality administrative support for the fundraising work of SCM, helping to ensure that strong relationships are built with donors and supporters. The post holder will also support the Operations Manager in monitoring the financial performance of the charity by ensuring that financial records are kept up to date.

The ideal candidate for this role will be someone who is well organised and has a keen eye for detail, with experience of working or volunteering in a similar role. You will need to show, in addition to the skills and experience listed in the person specification, that your values align with our values, and that you share our commitment to safeguarding. A willingness to learn and a positive attitude are as important to us as qualifications and experience, so do please get in touch even if you don’t think you meet all of the criteria quite yet.

You would be joining a small but dynamic staff who are deeply committed to the values and work of SCM, and who are excited to welcome you the team and work with you in your role. We can also offer you a competitive salary, a generous annual leave entitlement, pension contributions, enhanced sickness and family leave pay, and flexible working.

We actively encourage people from structurally disadvantaged backgrounds and underrepresented groups to apply. This includes, but is not limited to, people from communities experiencing racial inequality, migrants, refugees, women, non-binary people, people who identify as LGBTQIA+ and/or people from an economically deprived background.
