South Kilburn’s population is talented, creative and driven. It is an area with many different communities. However it does have higher than average levels of unemployment, poverty, and health concerns, as well as typically lower incomes for those who do work. The South Kilburn Trust was founded in 2011 to help address these issues and create new opportunities.
In 2014, the Trust took over the running of South Kilburn Studios, a well known business incubator and start-up space, which subsequently led to our success in winning funding from the Mayor of London, in partnership with Brent Council, to refurbish much loved old building into a community and workspace hub, The Granville, which re-opened in May 2018.
South Kilburn Trust is at an important and exciting stage of its development.
We are a growing charity and wish to recruit a full-time Finance Manager to oversee all income and expenditure and ensure robust and effective systems are in place.
Candidates should ideally have a professional accountancy qualification, but applications from part-qualified accountants with substantial professional experience will also be considered.
A minimum of 3 years’ experience of working in financial management and a minimum of 2 years’ experience at a senior level in a busy organisation are essential.
If you think you have the experience and would like to know more about this role, contact our Chief Executive, Carl Blackburn at email@example.com or 020 7328 1199.

Every Saturday morning a group of local residents meet for a walk around South Kilburn, led by South Kilburn Trust’s very own Nilufer.
This is not a hike or endurance challenge – it is a leisurely stroll whilst chatting to friends and neighbours, and always ends with tea and cake! It’s a great way to get to know more about the local area and the people in it. Especially now that the weather is getting better, there is no excuse not to get out of the house for an hour or two, stretch your legs and make some new friends.
The light exercise, good company and fresh air is good for both body and soul. No need to book – just turn up at 10 am on Saturday at The Granville Reception.
