Location: Broadstairs
Salary: £24,000 0.6 FTE

Social Enterprise Kent (SEK), is a Community Interest Company (CIC) working with individuals and communities all over Kent and Medway.

We are looking for a newly created role, Finance and Compliance Officer to join our team in our Broadstairs office. Working on our Building Better Opportunities contract, and funded by the Big Lottery and the European Social Fund, the role is a part time (0.6 FTE) role with flexibility as to hours.

To be considered for the role, you must have experience of working in a busy financial/compliance environment where attention to detail is paramount. You must be an excellent planner, extremely organised and logical. You will also have empathy with the clients and objectives of SEK. This is a joint role between finance and compliance, and therefore part of the role is reviewing paperwork for accuracy and putting action plans in place for improvement. Experience of working on an ESF programme would be an advantage (but not essential). You may have been an auditor in the past but wanting a change.

SEK supports those most in need. We work with people who are unemployed, have physical and mental health needs, are experiencing social isolation, or those who need some support and training to help them improve their skills and prospects. This means that all of our operational activities are guided by a commitment to maximising our positive social impact for our target market – local people, communities and businesses.

This is a fixed term contract until December 2019 (but there may be scope for this to be extended beyond this with other SEK projects).

To apply, please go to the SEK website,, and look through the detailed Job Description.
