The Careers & Enterprise Company was established in 2015 to help link schools and colleges to employers, in order to increase employer engagement for young people. Our mission is to prepare and inspire young people for the fast-changing world of work.

This is an exciting time at The Careers & Enterprise Company. During our first three years, we have worked with Local Enterprise Partnerships to build a national network which now links 2,000 schools and colleges to employers. We have also funded 150 programmes to provide high-quality employer engagement activities to young people where they are needed most.

The Head of Finance will report to the Director of Finance & Investment and be accountable for the effective delivery of the finance strategy. This will be achieved by ensuring the function’s efficient operation and working to improve its value to the business. The overseeing of the finance function will encompass responsibility and operational accountability for financial control, operations, planning and analysis, achieved through driving the function forward and the effective management and development of a team of 3, as well as working closely with internal and external stakeholders.
