Job Description

About us 

Gladrags is a small, Brighton-based charity that is a unique provider of sustainable costume resources and expertise for projects that are rooted in community, education, wellbeing, and the Arts. We have built a collection of 8000 pre-loved costumes and discovery boxes, 95% of which is donated stock that is repurposed and adapted to benefit the community time and time again through subsidised costume hire and community outreach activities.  

Funding for these services is boosted by revenue from hire to the professional arts sector and to partygoers. We also receive funds via grants and major donors, and on a smaller scale, via public fundraising campaigns and the resale of pre-loved clothing. We have been making a difference in our community since 1994 and are currently operating with a management team of 6 part-time workers and an intergenerational team-pool of 25 volunteers. 

Role Summary  

We are looking for someone with a positive, solution-based approach to their work and an appetite for variety within the role, which ranges from financial management and bookkeeping to support for our customer-facing systems. The role encompasses a broad range of tasks, carried out on a small scale in line with our size as an organisation. These include:

  • attending to all aspects of bookkeeping, accounts payable and receivable and payroll 
  • providing financial information and reports to the management team, Director and Board of Trustees 
  • reviewing and developing financial systems that support fundraising initiatives and customer-based processes 

You will have workplace experience in bookkeeping and financial reporting and the skills to contribute to forecasting, budgeting and policy. Experience of charity accounting is a bonus.  

We offer a friendly, creative and professional working environment in an open-plan space that incorporates both our volunteer team and the broad spectrum of beneficiaries and customers who visit our store. We are committed to equal opportunities and creating an inclusive environment for all.
