VACANCY: Finance, Administration and Operations Manager


Community Led Action and Savings Support (CLASS) and Greater Manchester Poverty Action (GMPA) are jointly recruiting a Finance, Administration and Operations Manager. This is an interesting and varied role with attractive benefits and the opportunity to contribute to two innovative and growing organisations.

CLASS is a community development agency that works in alliance with Community Savers – a network of majority women-led and neighbourhood-based community groups – to reduce poverty and inequality in our neighbourhoods, towns, and cities.

GMPA is a not-for-profit organisation that works to prevent and reduce poverty across Greater Manchester. GMPA’s vision is of a Greater Manchester free from poverty where all residents can realise their potential and access the benefits of living in a diverse and vibrant city region.

You will have a significant impact on the growth and development of both organisations by ensuring they have the financial and operational systems in place to remain agile and effective.

You will work closely with the CLASS Director, the GMPA Chief Executive and leadership teams at both organisations to plan, manage and monitor annual and project budgets, prepare management accounts and manage our day-to-day administration and operations including policy review and implementation.
