Greensleeves Care is a charitable, social care Trust providing residential and nursing care throughout the Midlands, East and South of England. We believe that ageing should be a continued stage of development and growth, and as a result, our homes are characterised by variety and spontaneity. We pay unremitting attention to care quality and many of our homes have won national and regional awards.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Book Keeper at our new development, The Orchards. The Orchards will provide residential and dementia care for 66 residents, and will be located in the picturesque cathedral city of Ely, Cambridgeshire.

The role of Book Keeper is a key position in the Home which combines preparing and keeping records of financial information for use by the Registered Manager and Head Office. This is an excellent opportunity for somebody with experience of bookkeeping looking to work in the not-for-profit sector.

As a Bookkeeper for Greensleeves Care you will be required to carry out day to day sales and purchase ledger tasks. You will work with the Home manager collating residents information including preparing contracts, managing room diaries and liaising with Local Authorities. In this role you will also be responsible for monitoring and reporting on the budget, and preparing the payroll. Other duties include credit control/debtors reports, bank and credit card reconciliations and month end reporting.

Candidates should have

  • Strong numeracy and communication skills,
  • Experience both of working in an office and of having carried out manual and/or electronic bookkeeping.
  • Experience of using Microsoft applications is essential.
  • Relevant qualifications (in administration or bookkeeping) are not essential, nor is experience of having worked in a care home – although both would be preferred.
