Khulisa is an award-winning, highly effective national charity that specialises in preventing and reducing crime by addressing the root causes of a person’s behaviour. Having worked in the UK for 10 years, and in South Africa for over 25, we are experts in resolving conflict and reducing violence in some of the world’s most volatile communities.

Our programmes empower at-risk youth, prisoners and ex-prisoners to develop their own alternatives to violence and crime, improve their futures and create stronger and safer communities. Our trained therapists deliver one-to-one and interactive group programmes in schools, prisons and community centres that use creative techniques to develop emotional literacy and resilience. We also provide mentoring and ongoing support for ex-prisoners upon release from prison. To date we have helped over 3,500 people to live heathy, crime-free lives.

The Finance Manager is an integral member of our team and will work closely with the Chief Executive and Senior Leadership team. This role is responsible for the day to day accounting and financial management of the charity, including budgeting, reporting on the financial performance. The Finance Manager will also contribute to developing and embedding a sustainable funding model for the organisation, supporting the development of bids and proposals led by the Fundraising team.

Khulisa is midway through their 2017-2020 growth strategy; the current turnover is £0.6m (raised predominantly through grants from trusts and foundations and a small proportion of contracted income). By 2019/20, Khulisa will raise over £0.85m from a more diverse range of sources, including delivering commissioned services to schools and prisons, and donations from corporates and major donors. The Finance Manager will play a key role in supporting the organisation through this growth period, providing both operational and strategic support to the team and Senior Leadership team.
