Job Details

I'm working with an established not-for-profit organisation based in Leicester who are looking for their new Director of Finance & Governance. The role joins a high performing team and continues an ongoing change programme, after a reshuffle in the responsibilities of the SLT. With a strong leadership team and a new 5 year strategy soon to be rolled out, it's an exciting time to join a growing organisation which still has a family feel. As with many charities, it is a challenging time as the pandemic has dented their income streams but has increased demand on services.

Reporting into an experienced COO, who places a high priority on personal development in the team, the main responsibilities of the role are:
  • Lead and develop a broad team of 23 across Finance, Governance, GDPR and a newly formed Contracts Management division.
  • Ensure continuous development of the organisational governance structure, becoming a champion of this area both internally and externally.
  • Nurture and build on the current team culture, expanding this to the newly created teams which has been given increased prominence with the change to home working.
  • Ensure board confidence in the execution of the business plans by providing analysis and modelling during the decision-making process
  • Manage relationships with external stakeholders, such as banks and investment partners to ensure continued growth and return on investments.

The successful candidate will:
  • Be a fully qualified accountant who has an excellent understanding of the governance requirements at a senior level.
  • Have experience managing and developing a multi-functional team in a director level position.
  • Enjoy working in an environment where continuous improvement is ingrained and enjoy making improvements to processes and policies.
  • Have a commercial mindset and have demonstrable experience of developing strategic objectives alongside the business aims.
  • Thrive when working in a high performing team where the culture is valued as much as output.

The organisation has an excellent flexible working policy with an option to work at least 50% at home. The closing date for applications is the 27th January, although applications will be reviewed on a continuous basis, so please don't delay in applying.
