What the job involves

We have an opportunity for a confident and motivated individual to lead our Finance Business Support and ICT team. You will provide an effective support service for financial decision-making across the charity, delivering insightful business analysis, value for money procurement and strong budgetary control to all Directorates. You will lead the strategic business planning process, providing support and challenge from a financial perspective.

What we want from you

An ACA, CIMA or ACCA qualified chartered accountant or equivalent, with proven business support experience in a multi-directorate environment, you will be able to lead the annual budgeting/forecasting exercise, developing financial rigour with a focus on value for money. Your knowledge of procurement will enable you to support and challenge activities across the charity. We are also looking for experience of managing and developing an ICT team, as well as managing an ICT budget and supplier relationships.

A strong team ethic and first class communication skills are important, along with the ability to influence effectively across the organisation. Proven knowledge of business planning methods and taxation issues affecting charities are also required for this exciting role.

Why work for us?

We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer.
Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, we can make prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.

At Prostate Cancer UK, we’re a vibrant, energetic and open organisation. This is a great opportunity to join us at a critical point in our journey. If you have the skills, experience and qualities we are looking for then I hope you will be inspired to find out more.

The support we’ll provide

Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance, child care vouchers, and season ticket loan – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
