Head of Finance & Operations


Continue the centuries of success by managing our significant financial resources and operations at a unique charity at a particularly unusual time in our national and Anglican stories. Following a decade of outstanding service from the current postholder, we are looking for a key member of the four-person Senior Leadership Team.

Founded in 1655 and with assets of over £120m, the charity provides financial grants and other forms of support to serving and retired ministers, ordinands, and clergy families. In 2020 we supported more than 1,300 individuals to the tune of over £2.6m. With a new brand and strategy in place, and a newly-appointed Chief Executive, the Trust is at a hugely exciting juncture, as it seeks to develop more and better programmes and partnerships, serving and supporting those who are, in their daily ministry, called to serve and support others.

The growth of our programmes depends significantly on the success of our operational functions, including finance, IT, HR, data protection, health & safety, and asset management, all of which will form key parts of this role. In particular, the postholder will be responsible for both the strategic and day-to-day management of our significant financial resources, for oversight of the charity’s Westminster premises and our portfolio of investments (both funds and properties), and for efficient, creative leadership of the entire support function for a historic, highly-regarded charity during an important period of development.

Please send your CV, a covering letter setting out why you are interested in the role and how you meet the person specification, and your completed criminal record declaration form (found at ), to Chief Executive Ben Cahill-Nicholls, on by 1pm Monday 26th July, 2021
