Retreat Charity Seeks Finance Assistant

Opportunity for a Bookkeeper

Are you well organised with good attention to detail? Penhurst Retreat Centre is looking for a Bookkeeper to process sales and purchase invoices, bank and petty cash reconciliations, month end accounts, process gift aid and other bookkeeping tasks. Candidates should have a good knowledge of Xero accounts software and Excel spreadsheets. The post is for 8 hours per week and can be worked flexibly to work around other work or family commitments.

We are a small non-denominational Christian trust offering ‘a place of rest with a heart for mission’ just outside Battle, East Sussex. We provide a warm welcome and hospitality to all guests, whether staying residentially or visiting for the day. Our passion is providing a safe place where people can encounter God and be strengthened in their journey of faith. We are open to all, but also specialise in supporting mission partners, cross-cultural workers and full-time Christian ministry workers, through specific led retreats and opportunities for debriefing.

Applicants need to be in sympathy with the Christian ethos and culture of the charity and committed to the charitable aims of the trust. Appropriate bookkeeping qualification(s) or proven track record and minimum 5 years’ experience required.
We will consider both employment at up to £15 per hour or self-employment at up to £20 per hour, depending on experience.
