Are you a strong all rounder in Finance looking to have a big impact on a Charity organisation? Do you want to be as much in the detail as involved in the high level of finance? Can you deliver strength in the management accounting process as well as establishing an environment of strong financial control?

My client is a faith-based Not-For-Profit organisation in Central London with a significant reach and a vast impact on the lives of vulnerable individuals. Following recent changes in finance with the appointment of a new Finance Director, there is now a need for an Interim Head of Finance for a period of 6 months with key responsibilities such as:

  • Leading a successful process delivering monthly management accounts
  • Leading on the preparation of financial statements and other financial information
  • Leading on budgeting and forecasting
  • Taking ownership of the accuracy of the general ledger
  • Getting into the detail of hugely complex spreadsheets, being effective with data manipulation in order to add cost centres and produce accurate budgets.

As an organisation with firm alignment to Christian values and ethos, it is essential that applicants are either practising Christians or comfortable working in environments with overt appreciation of Christian practices.

This would be an excellent opportunity for someone with broad finance experience at senior levels to move into the Not for Profit world and have a significant impact in the short term. The role will be based at attractive offices in Central London and a very warm working culture has been developed.

To be considered, you should:

  • Be a fully qualified accountant, or QBE with exceptional IT and Data Manipulation/Excel skills
  • Be a practising Christian
  • Have strong experience leading on the production of management accounts, budgets, forecasts, ideally in complex organisations.

This role can come off the market at short notice – please apply now to be considered.
