The Ocean Conservation Trust is a global ocean conservation charity that exists to restore and protect the Ocean. Our work is centred around people and positive action through pro-ocean behaviour and habitat restoration. We’re committed to conserving the marine environment and inspiring others to do the same.

The Finance Assistant role is integral to day-to-day operations and so is an excellent opportunity for the right person with accounts office experience and a strong work ethic looking to work in a fast-paced environment. A key player in all aspects of our financial processes, you will be responsible for processing all supplier invoices and payments including staff expenses, as well as cash management within the building.

This is a role suited to a confident individual with a head for numbers, high attention to detail and excellent administration skills. The role will require you to work to deadlines, be confident in dealing with people and be a positive and supportive member of the organisation.

The nature of the organisation and the role would require the hours to be spread across all weekdays (Monday to Friday) but can be flexible therein.
