Full Description

For 40 years, homelessness charity Four Square has worked tirelessly to ensure that Everyone has the opportunity to have a home and a place in their community.

Known for its innovation in homeless accommodation and incredibly successful social enterprises, Four Square offers a range of services across four main themes: accommodation, advocacy and advice, training and employment, enterprise and sustainability.

Under the leadership of a new CEO, there is a new strategy, vision and ambition for the future. The sky is the limit both in terms of expanding the offer to people who need support and in taking the social enterprise models beyond Edinburgh.

Key to the success is a recent re-structure of the charity, which has created a new leadership team and some new supporting roles.

If you are driven, dynamic and want to be part of a charity that has a strong reputation and is really going places, then this could be the organisation for you.

This role will work under the new Deputy CEO and will support the financial management of the charity. There are no specific qualifications required for this role beyond National 5 level Maths and English but you need to have experience of producing basic financial reports and exceptionally good attention to detail. You should have financial data entry and knowledge of SAGE in your skills set.

You will have lots of variety to your day, fulfilling a range of duties, from producing financial reports to organising the collection and recording of housing benefit and service charges across residential services. You will be the point of contact for both internal and external enquiries and so will be a strong communicator with excellent organisational skills.

If you’re a great team player and negotiator with a passion for the cause of homelessness, this could add up to be a fantastic career move for you.
