Effective financial management is central to our strategy and operating model. The Head of Finance and Resources will be crucial to managing our finances and resources while embedding a culture of financial efficiency and effective controls.
Reporting directly to the CEO, and working with the Finance and General Purposes Committee, the Head of Finance and Resources will lead on financial and resourcing matters and will be expected to provide critical financial information, insightful analysis, and timely reporting to facilitate the development of the organisation.
The role oversees a close-knit team of three part-time members of staff. The postholder will therefore have a degree of autonomy, but will be expected to ensure operational tasks are completed whilst contributing to the wider development of the organisation.
The role’s main functions are to:
- Ensure the efficient and effective financial planning and management of UKCISA’s resources
- Support the effective functioning of the Finance & General Purposes Committee and Board of Trustees
- Contribute to the development and implementation of UKCISA policy and strategy
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant who has had wide exposure to financial reporting and processes. The ability to influence and communicate with a range of stakeholders will be crucial to the role as the postholder will be reporting to the Finance and General Purposes Committee as well as the Board. The role would therefore suit a dynamic and progressive individual who can thrive in a supporting and collaborative environment.
Our office is very close to Angel underground station, but our staff are currently working remotely. When conditions allow, we would expect working from the office to resume. However, we can be flexible about home working. Our preferred working pattern is four days per week, but there is flexibility around this and the role can be adapted for other working patterns for the right candidate. Working patterns and home working can be discussed at interview stage.
