Head of Finance
£45 – £50k plus benefits

I am looking or an experienced Finance Manager to join dynamic, fast paced charity based in central Birmingham.

The Role
Reporting to the CEO and an integral part of the senior management team you will take charge of the entire Finance function for one of the UK’s foremost charitable organisations.

Based from their head office but with responsibility for 10 other sites across the UK you will oversee a small team that has responsibility for the day to day financial functions like ledger management, bank rec, credit control and payroll.

This leaves you to concentrate on the strategic side of the role with a specific focus on reporting (to board level), systems, analysis, budgeting and planning, cash flow and audit. Some of this will require liaison with 3rd parties and in that instance you will be responsible to managing that relationship.

You will also oversee the IT function too – not as a techie but as a manager of a 3rd party support function and organiser of service provider as and when required.

The Candidate
The ideal candidate will have worked in a finance manager type position before – ideally but not necessarily in a charitable or care based environment.

You will need to meet the usual criteria associated with a post of this nature including being someone who can operate strategically whilst working tactically and have fantastic communication and interpersonal skills.

What is important here though is that you are someone who can bring a level of general business savvy to the role. Along with the CEO and 2 other senior managers you will run things on a day to day basis and as such must have the required gravitas.

In terms of qualification it would be ideal if they were fully qualified but part qual from any of the CIMA ACCA, ACA type accreditations will suffice if you have the right experience.

The Company
They are a leading UK charity working in partnership with a range of backgrounds, situations and environments. They continue to win awards for their innovative, ground breaking and specialist services.

If this sounds like someone you want to work for, meet the criteria and are looking for a new challenge in an environment where you can make a difference then I would urge you to apply via the link below.

Confidentiality is assured.
