About The Job

The Head of Finance and Business Support is a pivotal role, sitting at the heart of the organisation and facing outwards to support our varied mix of programmatic, grant-making, fundraising and policy and marketing teams.

As such, the role is challenging and varied, with the postholder expected to transition with ease between a wide variety of activities, such as working on the financial aspects of programme design, modelling financial risk or developing reports for our Board of Trustees. The successful candidate will need to be flexible, have a ‘can do' attitude, be able to juggle balls, whilst always acting as a source of calm professionalism within the charity.

As our new Head of Finance and Business Support, you will be expected to spend time in both our Rugby office and our London office to participate in the wider leadership activities of the charity.
