The Church of England operates through 43 dioceses, or administrative regions, each under the care of its own Diocesan Bishop.

The Diocese of Derby consists of the County of Derbyshire except for a small area of Staffordshire. The Church offers its ministry to all members of the community, in this case covering a population of around one million. Within the Diocese there are 250 parishes and 330 church buildings served by approximately 150 paid clergy. There are also 110 church schools within the Diocese.

A new permanent post is being established within the Finance Team. This is a great opportunity to join a dynamic organisation, with prospects to use your accounting experience and develop new skills in a company and charity setting.

The Finance Officer will assist with the effective management of financial resources, maintain accounting records and management information, and deliver annual budgets, quarterly forecasts, reconciliations and controls and full audit trails.

We are looking for a candidate with an AAT qualification - or equivalent accounting experience - and a strong grasp of relevant legislation and reporting standards.

It is anticipated that one day a week will be spent visiting our parishes and deanery offices, so there will be an opportunity to develop your relationship skills and get out and get to know the Diocese.

Salary: £27,270 per annum - Full time, 35 hours per week

From time to time there will be the requirement to attend meetings during the evenings and at weekends. Time off in lieu will be given for any hours worked.

Closing Date is 30 September 2018.
