Who are we looking for? Needless to say, a candidate with a background in not-for-profit or charity accounting would be high on our clients wish list. But it’s a desirable, not an essential and this employer recognises the value in having a commercially astute, confident and technically experienced Head of Finance at the helm, whatever their background. The successful candidate will likely hold a professional qualification (ACA/ACCA/CIMA/CIPFA), but again an individual that can demonstrate close matching vocational experience wouldn’t be disregarded. The incoming Head of Finance will certainly require sound management/supervisory experience, excellent IT aptitude and the ability to work with and communicate effectively with colleagues across all areas of the organisation. The role works as part of a motivated, passionate and energetic management team whose enthusiasm for the future the charity is infectious - a like-minded, team playing attitude would work exceptionally well for this appointment.
