Wasps is looking for an enthusiastic and proactive Finance Manager, who shares its core values, to join our small team. Wasps’ staff is composed of 28 people, many of whom are part-time, but they support an expansive nationwide network of around 1000 creative people, with space across their estate of 21 characterful properties.

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, and supported by two Finance Officers, the Finance Manager has full oversight of the full financial operations and management of the Wasps Group (Wasps Trust, Wasps Ltd and Wasps Creative Industries CIC). This is a newly created role, and is a key part of our Senior Management Team who are collectively responsible, alongside the wider team, for the successful delivery of Wasps Vision and Mission.

The Group has an annual turnover of approximately £2m involving over 30,000 SAGE transactions per year. Our core operations are self-funded from our rental income, although we regularly apply for and manage capital grants to support major development projects.  This has amounted to £12m in the past 7 years. The seamless management of our finance function, along with transparent and meaningful reporting, are therefore integral to the success of the organisation.

The role will also act as Company Secretary, and provide regular reports to our highly experienced Board of Trustees at quarterly Board and Sub-committee meetings.

This is a varied role working within a hands-on staff team, supporting a diverse network of over 1000 artists and makers across Scotland – we strive to embed a supportive, values-driven culture in everything we do, and we are looking for candidates who share our ethos.
