We are seeking an experienced, meticulous and digitally savvy Finance and Administration Officer to join our small, dynamic and friendly team.
This post will be funded for two years. The post is dependent on external funding and any extensions will be dependent on securing future funds. If funding expires, and all other options have been exhausted, the contracts may be terminated earlier.
At DPIA, we have three main goals. We want asylum seekers and refugees to become more confident, more integrated and self-sufficient.
The journey of an asylum seeker or refugee in the UK is difficult. It can be intimidating to engage with a new culture and community, particularly if English or Welsh is your second language. DPIA want to help refugees and asylum seekers gain the confidence they need to feel at home in Wales.
Through empowering people to become self-sufficient, we hope that one day our service users will not need us anymore! They will thrive in Wales, independently joining groups, getting jobs and tackling new challenges confidently, and help their family and friends to do the same!
In the years since we were set up in 2001, we have become specialists in helping asylum seekers and refugees. We have become experts through our experience, having run over 21 successful projects throughout our history. By speaking with Refugees and Asylum Seekers every day and hearing the challenges they face we continually learn and develop how we can be the best we can at providing support. Both our staff team and our Board of Directors include Refugees.
With projects ranging from children’s groups to employability classes and advocacy forums, we really do act on our promise to improve life for refugees and asylum seekers in Wales.
We help people throughout Wales. Though our office is based in Cardiff, our projects spread as far as Newport, Swansea, Wrexham, Torfaen, Caerphilly and Blaenau Gwent.
The Finance and Administrator Officer is responsible for all aspects of financial and administrative management at the DPIA. You will be responsible for the effective management of project finances and financial records and for ensuring that we are compliant with all relevant accounting standards. You will be responsible for producing our accounts and for providing financial information and advice to the Chair, the Treasurer and the rest of the team. You will enjoy operating independently with high levels of autonomy and engaging effectively with external partners, service users and suppliers, and you will take pride in making things run smoothly for the rest of the team.
Our current Finance Officer is leaving us in June 2022, so we are looking to appoint someone as soon as possible. For candidates with up to one month’s notice period there we hope to organise a short handover period with the existing Finance Officer.
