Full Time

My client is one of the UK’s leading youth charities that fundamentally changes the lives of some of the most disadvantaged young people across the country. At the very forefront of their market, they look for the same innovation and excellence from their back office operations. At present they are looking to recruit a Senior Head of Finance to lead them through year end and provide additional project support to a new Director.

Key duties:

To lead, manage and motivate a team of 12 staff to deliver the financial accounting services to the organisation and its other entities.

To ensure compliance with all statutory reporting requirements completing the annual reports and accounts.

To ensure policies and procedures are in place across the organisation to promote effective financial control and ensure compliance within the regulatory framework.

Assist with a programme of change throughout the department including systems development, process review and staff engagement.

To provide ad hoc support to the Finance Director.

With a strong academic background, the successful candidate will be a fully qualified accountant. Although you will already have delivered in a technical finance role, previous sector experience is not essential and commercial candidates are encouraged to apply. This role requires someone who is technically able but also ambitious, proactive and sees finance as an integral part of the business.
