Job description

We are currently seeking a Head of Finance for an 18-month fixed term contract, to provide strategic management of the Finance department and the finances of the charity, oversee financial systems and maximize the use of technology for effective financial management. This role can either be based at home, or 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 and in return, you will receive up to £71,152.00 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 2021 we helped 137,000 cats and kittens. That's the equivalent of around 375 cats a day!

The existing Head of Finance will be undertaking a new temporary role within the directorate with the focus on change, so this post will be relied upon to ensure that the business as usual work such as budgeting and year end is not unduly affected by the change.

As our Head of Finance, you will lead a highly skilled team of 20 employees, covering financial accounting and transaction processing, management accounting and reporting and Payroll. The Charity has an annual revenue budget of £75m and operates a trading subsidiary with income in excess of £2m per annum. The team processes around 5,000 supplier payments and 150,000 neutering vouchers per year. Running a payroll for over 1,000 staff and supporting over 220 branches and their volunteer treasurers, they also provide financial advice and support to the 36 Centres and a chain of over 100 shops.

Reporting to the Director of Finance and Strategy, this is a senior position within Cats Protection. As a Leadership Group member, this role contributes to the leadership of the charity and works closely with the Executive Management Team on corporate financial issues. The job is varied, ranging from advising Trustees, supporting the Audit and Investment Committees, coordinating the Charity risk register, working with internal and external auditors and contributing to the long-term financial planning of the Charity in line with its strategic objectives.

Responsibilities of our Head of Finance:

As well as providing accurate and timely financial reporting including financial and management accounts, cashflow reporting, forecasting, budgeting and all statutory reporting, you will assist the Director of Finance and Strategy to ensure that Trustees are able to discharge their governance function and add value to Cats Protection’s performance. You will lead on managing the tax affairs of the charity and coordinating the risk management processes and have a key role to support, develop and empower employees and volunteers, particularly Branch Treasurer volunteers, to reach their full potential in delivering the best possible services in support of strong financial management.

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

  • a CCAB qualified accountant with several years’ experience leading a multi-functional Finance Team.
  • a good understanding of the charity SORP will be required to produce the statutory accounts
  • the ability to present complex financial information to a variety of audiences in oral and written reports and in webinars and face to face meetings
  • a supportive leader, who develops the team and colleagues
  • a team player and able to work independently on high level financial information

What we can offer you:

  • Up to £71,152.00pa 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 Head of Finance and know you are helping to make a real difference to cats and kittens across the UK!
