Finance & Operations Manager

Finance & Operations Manager

Hubbub is doubling our customer numbers and quadrupling our impact, year on year. Our core business is to provide awesome fundraising and engagement technology for universities and charities. In 2020, we will more than double our customer numbers again. In order to meet increasing demand, we are now looking for a Finance & Operations Manager, or a Finance specialist keen to branch out into a broader operations role as part of a small team. 

We anticipate that you may have an unconventional career path, a head for numbers, who enjoys joining the dots and making systems and processes work. Great finance and operations people are problem-solvers, thinkers, do-ers, fantastic communicators, not afraid to get their hands dirty but with a clear vision for overall direction and the insight for what change is going to matter. Value alignment, culture fit, and being able to showcase your skills - these are the things we’ll be looking for.

A bit more about the role

We have a lot of data, a decent finance function, and a fair few disparate systems across the company with a desire to join up, improve, automate (to catch up a little with the growth we’ve had), and prepare for the rapid growth that is yet to come. You’ll need to be confident and able managing a finance function - primarily in terms of processes, controls, data and metrics reporting. There is, and will be, plenty of opportunities for you to suggest and innovate in this role.

You’ll be:

  • Assisting with preparation of monthly management accounts, journals and balance sheet & bank reconciliations 
  • Preparing and submitting Quarterly VAT returns
  • Track and manage operational income and expenditure
  • Manage the accounting system to ensure consistency, accurate entry, and accurate reporting of all accounts
  • Raising sales invoices, debt collection, sending statements and chasing clients for payments.
  • Maintain customer contracts and update accordingly to services purchased
  • Ensure consistency of existing accounting systems through creating, maintaining, and enforcing standards and procedures
  • Assisting VP Operations with the development and implementation of systems and processes company wide
  • Assisting with, and responsible for Internal CMS - data / contracts / documentation / process
  • Ensuring compliance register is kept up to date, and that any relevant dates are met by the relevant person / team
  • Other ad-hoc reporting and finance / operations / office management tasks

Bonus points

  • Experience with U.S. and Australia accounting requirements
  • Experience with Xero

About you

It’s likely you have a strong ability in finance, some history with legal/contracts, a desire to establish, measure, iterate and improve processes, and strong communication skills. If you have startup experience or fast growth experience that’s likely to help - especially if it was in an operations or finance role. 

Why does Hubbub exist?

To power the good causes of the future. Because only they can ensure we all live our lives to the fullest, and humanity has a future we can all be proud of.

How do we achieve this?

To do this, we create communities around those causes, centred on all forms of giving.

We work locally and globally, with individuals, movements and nonprofits, to build the technology, deliver the programmes and create and grow the communities and the impact those communities have.

About us

We are a 50% London, 50% remote team. We operate with weekly OKR meetings against quarterly objectives, with weekly all-hands meetings - and the whole team gets together twice a year. There’s a dog in the office most of the time. He’s cute. Our people are giving of their time, energy and attention, we take our ability to have fun seriously, and we have an awful lot of grit. We all care deeply about our shared mission; we expect you to, as well.

Reporting to/Based in

You’ll be reporting to the VP of Operations, joining all the all-company meetings. On a day to day basis, you’ll be working actively with the VP of Operations and Commercial Director, and sometimes the leader of Technology & Product.

We anticipate that you’ll be based in our offices on Old Street, London. We’re open to flexible working both in location and times, but for this role, we don’t think a fully remote hire is going to deliver what’s needed.
