Current vacancies

Finance and Administration Officer

We are looking for a dynamic Finance and Administration Officer to join our small team to support the day-to-day running of both Rafiki Thabo Foundation and its trading subsidiary ACACIA UK. Working closely with Rafiki’s Director and ACACIA’s Shops Coordinator, you will undertake a wide variety of administrative tasks to ensure the smooth running of the organisation. There are three main dimensions to the role:

  1. Administrative support to the Director of Rafiki Thabo to ensure efficient programme delivery;
  2. ACACIA shops: ACACIA UK currently has three charity shops (and are hoping to open a fourth) and much of the administration will be relating to the shops. As such, the Finance and Administration Officer will also work closely with ACACIA UK’s Shops Coordinator; and
  3. Fundraising support: Rafiki Thabo organises a range of fundraising activities, including large scale and smaller scale events, virtual challenges etc which require administrative support.

The hours for the role will be 30 per week (can be four full-time days or spread over 5 days). The role can either be undertaken from home or from ACACIA’s office in Abingdon, depending on the preference of the person we appoint, but at least one day a week should be spent working from the ACACIA office so you will need to live within a reasonable distance from Abingdon.

Closing date for applications is 27th May 2022. Read more about the role and how to apply in the Job Description.
