Fairfield Environment Trust (FET) is about to enter a new and exciting phase of development. Earlier this year our trading arm (Fairfield Recycling) won a new recycling contract that has seen us grow significantly. We have also completed a series of mergers and now our family of organisations includes activities as diverse as farming and building management.

With an increased workforce has come additional responsibilities and the resources to enable us to become one of Greater Manchester’s most impactful environmental charities. We are therefore seeking an individual to join a growing, youthful and dynamic team who are taking on the mantle of our retiring founders, offering a unique job opportunity to shape and grow our businesses and charitable work over the next decade.

The full-time FET Finance Officer will be responsible for the day-to-day financial management of the Fairfield Group which includes a charity and a number of social enterprises, working along side and supported by our part-time Finance Manager.

As well as being supported by our Finance Manager, you will work alongside Fairfield Recycling’s Business Development Manager, FET’s HR Officer (who we are recruiting for at the same time) and key staff at the Kindling Trust & Bridge 5 Mill.

Over time it is envisioned that this post will evolve into a more senior one and you will take on the responsibilities of our Finance Manager who will be retiring in a few years time. Training and on-the-job learning will be a key part of this post in the first six months.

Your responsibilities will include: Financial Controls & Reporting; Book Keeping; Payroll; recording Social Impacts and Key Performance Indicators; helping with Business Risk Management and Compliance of various regulations.
