A newly created role for an individual who is looking for an opportunity to build on existing bookkeeping and administration skills, support a growing organisation and be part of a small and dynamic team at the heart of global sustainability.


Bonsucro is a not for profit organisation comprised of over 500 members from across the global sugar supply chain - farmers, millers, retailers, end buyers of sugar and sugarcane by-products, agri-business and civil society groups. We manage the most credible global performance framework for sustainable sugarcane production. We use this to inform, improve and inspire a membership community of change. The Finance and Administration Assistant role is core to Bonsucro´s operations and will be based at the central office in London. Reporting to the Finance and Risk Manager, you will provide pivotal support across the areas of finance, administration, payroll and basic accounts management, as well as supporting the CEO and teams with other administrative requirements as needed. While the key focus of this role will be on finance activities, the position offers a diverse range of responsibilities, including maintaining and improving the effective functioning of the London office space and supporting the organisation of logistics in regard to meetings, workshops and team-building events. As such, the role will offer good opportunities for development and growth. As ideal candidate, you are confident and communicative with experience in bookkeeping and use of finance systems, as well as general office procedures. You have a proactive and positive approach to work and demonstrate a keen eye for detail and accuracy. Extremely well-organised, you are able to juggle a variety of tasks while sticking to deadlines. You are also adaptable and responsive when it comes to dealing with requests from colleagues and are comfortable providing administrative support. The role would suit someone with an interest in sustainability who thrives on taking ownership over processes.
