Finance, Operations and Communications Officer
Access works to make charities and social enterprises in England more financially resilient and self-reliant, so that they can sustain or increase their impact.
We do this through supporting the development of enterprise activity to grow and diversify income, and improving access to the social investment which can help stimulate that enterprise activity.
Access is a spend-down foundation and will be around until the mid-2020s, but the need for this work will continue well beyond that. So we want to create partnerships which can outlive us, test and learn from new approaches, and generate knowledge which improves the work of others seeking the same goals.
We also want to reach as deep as possible into the charity and social enterprise sector. Therefore our approach is to work through other organisations to deliver our programmes and investments. These include social investment funds, community foundations, sector infrastructure organisations, grant managers, social investment advisors and researchers.
Access is at an exciting time in its development, we are entering the second phase of our ten year life. We have a new focus on supporting enterprise development and are developing a new £10m blended finance programme with funds from dormant accounts.
We are recruiting a Finance, Operations and Communications Officer. This role will include responsibilities across finance, communications and staff and governance support. This is a unique opportunity to join a small team of seven in a pioneering organisation. You will also benefit from Access being co-located with Big Society Capital and have the opportunity to participate in learning and development opportunities within both organisations.
