Full Time

Head of Finance required by a York based not for profit organisation.

Client Details

A well established organisation based in York with a great working environment and staff benefits as well as the best holiday entitlement I've seen in the market 35 days plus statutory holidays and Christmas close down.


In this newly created Head of Finance role within this not for profit organisation based in York, you will use your accountancy skills to lead the finance team to ensure a high service is delivered across the organisation and all key business decisions are backed up by robust financial information.

You will work closely with the senior management team and advise strategically on how to improve the financial standing of the organisation and achieve value for money.

Other key areas of delivery for the head of finance include:

  • Overseeing the production of both the statutory and management accounts
  • Improvement of financial policy, processes and procedures
  • Budget setting and working with key stakeholders across the organisation
  • Contract negotiation


Candidates must be qualified accountants ( ACA / CIMA / CIPFA or ACCA ) with a strong track record of leading teams and projects across both core finance areas, but also ideally outside of finance in areas such as HR. Experience within a not for profit or education type industry sector would be an advantage.
