We are currently seeking a Finance Manager to join our small but very busy team!

the company to achieve its’ goals.

with small companies and/or charities. An interest in the arts is desirable, but we’re also
interested to hear from those bringing relevant financial knowledge and experience from other

the macro and micro pictures simultaneously, and who is keen to make a difference.
