Civitas Recruitment are proud to be working with a growing, innovative charity working with refugees and asylum seekers. Spearheaded by a dynamic and passionate CEO, the charity looks to assist with the cost of transport which often is a barrier to integration and mobility for those on very low income and means. The charity looks to alleviate this issue by matching refugees and asylum seekers with reconditioned, abandoned or donated, old bikes around the country. The charity is in its 10th year and is in the process of donating their 10,000th bike.
An opportunity exists for a talented Head of Finance to join the team. This is a senior management role working closely with the CEO to ensure that the charity has exciting growth plans whilst maintaining great governance. The Head of Finance will oversee reporting and look to ensure robust systems and policies are in place.
Who are we looking for?
Ideal candidates will be a fully qualified Accountant (ACC, ACA or CIMA) with previous experience of managing a small finance function. You will have experience of developing strategies as well as be comfortable with transactional work. You will be a comfortable communicator with experience of working with a SMT and board level colleagues as well as manage external stakeholders. Good knowledge of charity financial reporting as well as developing systems will be a key requirement.
