Self-employed Bookkeeper (Part-time)

Scottish Ensemble £15-20 per hour, dependent on experience Closing date 19 February 2021
In an unprecedented year for the world and the arts sector, Scottish Ensemble has successfully maximised its flexible and innovative model, responding to the new urgent needs of its audiences. Adapting its work for the digital sphere (as it looks to find a bold new filmic language for classical music), developing its programmes in Music & Mental Health, and continuing to connect its artistic plans with relevant contemporary issues, the group has stayed resilient and ambitious through this unpredictable period. Regular Funding support from Creative Scotland and a successful 50th anniversary fundraising campaign which culminated earlier in 2020 has also increased stability.

SE is looking for a part-time, self-employed bookkeeper to join its small team and manage the organisation’s accounts on a weekly basis, assisting with quarterly management accounts as well as end of year accounts and annual audit. The successful candidate will have strong experience in an accounting environment, preferably within the arts or charity sector and ideally will be available to start within two weeks of appointment.

Deadline for applications: Friday 19 February
Salary: £15-20 per hour, dependent on experience
Start date, working hours and term: From Monday 15 March, up to 10 hours per week on a freelance basis; hours can be flexible to suit candidate
