Officer, Financial Risk Analysis, Arts Council England

Officer, Financial Risk Analysis

Contract: Permanent, working 35 hours per week

Salary: £27, 668 per annum, plus excellent benefits

Location: Manchester

We are looking to recruit an Officer to join our busy Funded Organisations team based in Manchester but operating across England. The role will be mainly office based and you would be expected to travel to other Arts Council office from time to time, although we are currently operating from home due to the pandemic restrictions. Interviews will be held remotely.

The role will provide expert advice and support to staff at all levels, focusing on National Portfolio Organisations and Music Education Hubs. This will be particularly in relation to financial analysis and risk, but will also involve working more broadly on our funding programmes, including support on assessment, monitoring, and reporting.

It is expected that the successful candidate will have a part professional finance qualification or relevant level of financial experience to analyse detailed financial information, with opportunities in the role to develop this further. An understanding of business models and financial and legal regulations for charities and not-for-profit organisations, particularly in the arts and culture sector, would be beneficial.

The role requires a candidate who is proactive and able to manage multiple priorities and stakeholders efficiently, can interpret and analyse often complex information and present it in a clear and understandable manner, and can communicate with staff at all levels who have differing levels of finance and risk knowledge.

Disabled, D/deaf and/or neurodivergent people, those from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds and people under 30 are under-represented in our workforce so we particularly encourage applications from people in these groups.
