The Women’s Equality Party is a collaborative force in British politics uniting people of all genders, ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, beliefs and experience in the shared determination to see women enjoy the same rights and opportunities as men – so all can flourish. WE challenge other parties through our campaigns and policy proposals as well as at the ballot box.
The Finance and Compliance Manager will report to the Chief Operating Officer and will work at a senior level to ensure the effective management of the Party’s finances and will have lead responsibility for the Party’s compliance with electoral law and other regulations. This will involve working with the Party Treasurer, central office staff, other Party officers, including Branch Officers, and suppliers to enable and ensure their actions in relation to the Party are compliant. The Finance and Compliance Manager will also oversee central office management, including systems and processes and will line manage the Administration Officer.
WE are looking for someone with bookkeeping and financial management experience and a passion for financial issues and contexts combined with an affinity for rules and regulations, and either experience of managing finances within a political party or a proven ability to quickly acquire the required knowledge. Our preferred candidate will have critical problem-solving ability, strong attention to detail and an investigative nature. They will be adaptable, able to work within the unpredictable environment of UK politics, committed to equality and excited by the prospect of changing British politics.
