Job Description

Oedipa is a small, registered Charitable Incorporated Organisation (no. 1171656) founded in 2017. It was set up to deliver arts projects for audiences and participants.

Oedipa is currently working on a large-scale contemporary opera, in partnership with universities and health groups, which is being created in collaboration with adults with communication disabilities.

We are currently urgently seeking a volunteer accountant who can assist us in the proper formatting of our first set of annual accounts. An accountant sits on our board of trustees, and had given the impression that they were taking care of our accounts, but had in fact been taken ill and has now left us with a long overdue submission in an incorrect format.

Our turnover is comparatively very small (and well below the £250k threshold), and we have very limited funds as we work on a project-by-project basis. Nonetheless we are now late with our first set of accounts and are seeking help in order to resolve the matter as soon as possible.

We would be grateful to hear from any registered accountants who might be able to provide this service to us free of charge. The books are well-kept and up-to-date, and all the data exists in a spreadsheet. Ourr financial activity is limited and this should be a small undertaking. We are happy to do everything we can to make it as easy as possible!
