Head of Finance and Corporate Services

Contract Type
Full Time

The dictionary definition of "inspire" is: to make someone feel that they want to do something and can do it. That is exactly what Inspire, partnership through life, sets out to do by empowering the life choices of adults, young people and children with learning disabilities and additional support needs in the North East.

It’s the biggest organisation of its kind in the region providing 400 people with services based on their individual need. It employs over 500 members of staff across 50 services. These include residential care, housing support, day service, outreach, respite and employability schemes. It has an annual turnover of more then £10 million.

The charity will not stop there. It has ambitious plans for the future which include a growth strategy which could result in expansion to areas beyond the current geographic area of Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.

It needs an experienced Head of Finance and Corporate Services to oversee all the finance functions and operational elements of the business. You will also be instrumental in shaping the future strategy of the organisation which is currently reviewing the 5 year business plan up to 2022. The post will also support a shift in internal practices where the finance team becomes more embedded in the projects by providing stronger support to the Service Managers.

This role requires someone who is more than just a finance professional who is used to sitting behind a desk. You will be driving change by providing inspirational leadership. You will be responsible for critical arms of the business on which Inspire will rely for success and you will have direct contact with service deliverers and users. Personality will be as important as professional skills. If you have at least 10 years of experience in a senior finance role, a strong empathy with this cause and think you have the character, drive and finance background to help Inspire reach its goals, please contact us now.
