Are you a proven change leader, known for getting the best of teams and driving through change?

My client is a membership body based in Leicestershire with an excellent reputation around the world as a leader in its field. Its substantial membership base has steadily grown over the years, and this is set to continue. They are now looking for a new Director of Finance and Governance to lead a substantial team forward.

This is a wonderful opportunity to join a prestigious organisation that has its members at its heart. The organisation proudly boasts an excellent culture, with attractive benefits packages and flexible working policies post-Covid.
