The role

The Raspberry Pi Foundation’s mission is to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world. It’s a deliberately bold statement of our intent. Since launching our first product in February 2012, we have sold more than 14 million Raspberry Pi computers, and helped kickstart a global movement to get more people involved in computing and digital making. Our trading subsidiary is growing rapidly, and diversifying its product line as well as expanding its direct sales function. We have achieved a lot, and grown quickly, in a short space of time.

We have a clear and ambitious strategy for the next three years, and we now need to strengthen our internal operations, financial controls, and administrative capacity in order to deliver on it.

We are looking to recruit an Assistant Accountant who will work closely with the Financial Controller to carry out the day-to-day financial management of the Foundation’s trading subsidiary, Raspberry Pi (Trading) Limited. This is a varied role covering all aspects of managing the finances of a manufacturing company, including transactional work, management accountancy, stock control, and higher-level month-end reporting. This role will suit someone with the analytical skills and attention to detail needed to flourish in accountancy, who also has the communication skills required to effectively translate financial information to the wider organisation.

The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a unique place to work, with a fantastic team and positive work culture, so we are also looking for the right personality to fit in with this small but pivotal team within the organisation.
