Position Summary – Finance Coordinator

Long Live the Kings is looking for an energetic and resourceful professional, someone who enjoys problem solving and has a knack for numbers. If you are a skilled bookkeeper with solid fund-accounting experience in recording day-to-day financial transactions and enjoys being part of a collaborative team and bringing fresh ideas to the table, this may be the fit for you. Your focus will primarily be on accounts payable and accounts receivable with growth potential to handle financial reporting, assist in budgets, and cash flow. The Finance Coordinator will help facilitate the daily financial workings of this ambitious non-profit, with an annual budget of roughly $3 million. The selected candidate will receive hands-on training in the industry’s leading fund accounting software; Abila MIP Fund Accounting and report directly to the Finance Director.

While experience is preferred, we will offer training on the systems you’ll use, as well as a briefing on organizational norms and culture, expectations, etc. In short, our team will make sure you know what is expected of you, and how to do it well. We look forward to welcoming a team member who will bring something new to LLTK through their personhood, talents, lived experiences, etc.

This position is based in downtown Seattle (5th & Union) in our administrative offices. Most staff are still working remotely, though the Finance team is needed in the office on a nearly FT basis, with some flexibility provided. We are planning a return to some in-office workdays for most staff on a voluntary basis this summer. Our hybrid work environment is evolving, and at some point in the future we may create 1-2 “anchor days” where staff are expected to be in the office. The Finance Coordinator will have an office (undetermined if shared or not) and be provided a laptop and office equipment that reasonably accommodates their needs to work at the office and remotely, even if more infrequently. Any time staff work remotely, you will need to provide a reliable internet connection and be able to be reached by phone (LLTK provides a $20/month cell phone stipend, paid quarterly).
