Your new role
You'll be acting in a varied 'Head Of' role, not only leading a small, established finance team but providing some leadership to non-finance within the organisation.
You'll act as a key ally and business partner to various department heads, ensuring finances are well managed and that provision of technology resources are maintained to the highest standard. Given the charitable status of the organisation, financial oversight is key, and where additional enterprise activities exist, you'll play a key part in maintaining their financial viability through stringent analysis and strong financial leadership.
The role will require strategic input to the SLT and Board around financial governance and guidance, as well as managing the external audit process. You'll be heavily involved in developing and implementing financial policies, procedures and controls, as well as managing the annual budgeting process, providing regular reports to support decision-making.
There will be good opportunity for you to get involved with revenue generation opportunities as well as cost-saving initiatives, allowing you to demonstrate your entrepreneurial flair, whilst overseeing and leading the technology team internally, especially around the reporting around stakeholder data.
With various sites which are not only unique to business but to the sector, this is a unique and interesting role for a suitably interested and experienced candidate who is keen to make a difference.

What you'll need to succeed
You will ideally be a qualified accountant with significant leadership experience, but individuals who are QBE or part-qualified will also be welcomed to apply subject to suitable experience and background.
You must be adaptable, comfortable in an ever-changing environment, enthusiastic and willing to make a difference. You will be comfortable using Excel extensively and ideally have good experience of a variety of finance systems (Xero is used here).
Please note: This organisation operate in a regulated environment so the successful applicant will be subject to additional checks relevant to the industry and role.
What you'll get in return
You'll be joining an organisation who truly make a difference.
Alongside the intangible benefits of working for this organisation, you'll benefit from:

  • Salary up to £55,000 p/a
  • Holiday entitlement of 30 days + statutory, rising with duration of continuous service
  • Pension 3% employee/5% employer
  • Westfield Health scheme
  • 3x life assurance
