Job description

We are currently seeking an interim Director of Finance to join our team. Although this role is currently working from home due to Covid restrictions, it is based at the National Cat Centre, Chelwood Gate, on the edge of Ashdown Forest. This is a remote location and public transport is limited. You will join us on a full-time basis until May 2022 and in return, you will receive up to £80,000pa plus excellent benefits.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity with a nationwide network of adoption and homing centres, volunteer-run branches and charity shops. During 2019 we helped around 191,000 cats and kittens, an average of more than 520 per day. The Charity has an annual revenue budget of £75m and operates a trading subsidiary with income in excess of £2m per annum.

As our Director of Finance, you’ll lead a highly skilled team of employees, covering financial accounting and transaction processing, management accounting and reporting, Payroll and Procurement. You’ll be the accountable executive for all the finance activities of the Charity including planning, budgeting, forecasting, decision-making and monitoring through 2021.

Reporting to the CEO, this senior position will share in the collective accountability and responsibility for leadership of Cats Protection. This includes leading the development of strategies, policies and plans to discharge Cars Protection’s purpose; monitoring the performance of the Charity to ensure it meets its strategic objectives and targets, and promoting high standards of propriety, best practice and the efficient and effective use of people and resources.

Key responsibilities of our Director of Finance will include:

  • Ensuring the EMT and Trustees are able to discharge their responsibilities in overseeing compliance with regulatory requirements
  • Overseeing procurement activities of the Charity, ensuring service excellence and cost-effectiveness so that budget holders spend the Charity’s money wisely
  • Driving the development of financial management methodologies for 2022 to meet organisational needs, support change and ensure robust financial management
  • Ensuring appropriate and effective overall management of risk for the charity
  • Ensuring the development of financial aspects of the Cats Protection strategy and transition planning
  • Overseeing the implementation of effective and useable project, portfolio and programme management across the charity – including the implementation of a new finance system
  • Supporting the Audit and Investment Committees and internal and external audit functions
  • Leading the Directorate teams and managing the above reports

What we’re looking for in our Director of Finance:

  • A fellowship of a Professional Accounting Body (ICAEW, ICAS, ICAI, ACCA, CIPFA, CIMA), educated to level 7
  • Significant knowledge of cross-section legislation, regulations and financial issues relating to the not for profit environment
  • Experience of leading a finance function within a regulatory environment – preferably within the Third Sector
  • Significant experience of developing and implementing successful organisational and financial plans
  • Substantial senior management experience, including monitoring, evaluating and improving organisational performance
  • The ability to evaluate data, including financial and other numeric data, in order to make systematic and rational high-level judgements
  • The ability to motivate, empower and develop people, paid and unpaid, at all levels in a complex, multi-location organisation

What we can offer you:

  • A competitive salary plus excellent benefits
  • Generous annual leave entitlement
  • Contribution pension scheme
  • Life assurance scheme
  • A range of health benefits
  • Employee Assistance Programme… and more!

Join us as our Director of Finance and know you are helping to make a real difference to cats and kittens across the UK!
