UKI-based Football for Future are looking for an experienced administrator to help with bookkeeping, invoices, taxes, VAT returns, board meeting preparation, minute-taking and other tasks.

About the role

We are already working with a professional accountant regarding Corporation Tax, VAT and PAYE but we need help with preparing our accounts and relevant receipts for them, including updating them on Xero.

Additionally, although FFF is currently registered as a Community Interest Company (CIC) we still operate as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). The Board of Trustees meet every quarter to review financial spending, priorities, safeguarding and our risk and conflicts of interest registers. This means we often need help with minute-taking and writing up the meeting agenda. CIO registration is a top priority for the organisation so experience with CIO administration is also appreciated.

As a remote team, you need to be a self-starter, although you will have weekly virtual meetings with Barney Weston, one of FFF’s two Co-Directors - and regular interaction with our small team of permanent staff, freelancers and volunteers. You should be based in England and be willing to occasionally travel to London for in-person team meetings (at least once a month).
