Job description

The Listening Place (TLP) was conceived in 2015 and set up in 2016 in London, by a group of volunteers with a great deal of experience in supporting people struggling with suicidal thoughts and feelings, led by Sarah Anderson CBE.

They had recognised that there is little on going face-to-face support available for many people with chronic suicidal feelings, and that some of this support can be given by well trained and professionally supervised volunteers.

TLP’s Vision

Anyone who, for whatever reason feels life is no longer worth living, can find a place with a warm and open listener who will give them time.

TLP’s Mission

To provide those who feel life is no longer worth living with a safe place to come and talk freely and confidentially to warm, non-judgemental volunteers who are willing to engage with their feelings and support them through their darkest times.

TLP’s Values

Caring, Collaborative, Courageous, Resolute, Respectful

The charity now seeks to appoint a Head of Finance & Operations who has a strong affinity with TLP’s aims and objectives to help take it forward in the next stage of its evolution.

Background to the Role

From the initial concept eight years ago, TLP has expanded rapidly. It now operates out of three sites in Central London (Meade Mews in Pimlico, Hunter Street in Bloomsbury, & Shepherd’s Bush Road, which is also the Head Office). There are plans to open a fourth site in the City (ideally close to Liverpool Street) within the next twelve months. Income for the Financial year to March 2024 is expected to be in excess of £1.5m.

The back-office functions have expanded to reflect this growth, and the Board now believe that an experienced Head of Finance & Operations is needed to help realise the ambitious plans they have for TLP. This is a newly created role.

The Role

TLP has recently appointed an experienced, and dynamic COO, who is responsible for the day-to-day running of the charity to support the Volunteer CEO & founder. As a result, TLP is well-positioned to continue its progress in providing face-to-face support to even more Londoners who feel that life is no longer worth living.

The Head of Finance & Operations will support the COO in professionalising TLP, laying the foundations for its future growth and overseeing the commissioning of its fourth site.

Candidate Profile

  • Leader. Enjoys developing and moulding a group of diverse individuals into a team.
  • Communicator. Has the ability to produce robust financial information that can be simply explained to all levels of the charity.
  • Uniter. Experienced in operational change and improvement, including bringing staff and volunteers with them on the change journey.
  • Self-starter. Someone who can spot opportunities and take the initiative to move projects forward.
  • Advocate. Has a strong connection to TLP’s vision, mission, and values and wants to help make a difference to the lives of others.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement financial strategies to support TLPs goals and objectives.
  • Manage the day-to-day financial operations, including budgeting, forecasting, and financial reporting.
  • Ensure compliance with all regulatory requirements, including the Charity Commission, and financial regulations.
  • Lead and mentor the team, fostering a culture of accountability and continuous improvement.
  • Collaborate with the Senior Leadership Team to develop and execute operational plans that align with the organisation's mission and vision.
  • Identify opportunities for process improvements and efficiency enhancements across all operational areas.
  • Ad hoc financial & operational support and advice to the Board of Trustees.
  • Build and maintain relationships with external stakeholders, including donors, vendors, and regulatory agencies.
  • Ensure TLP’s IT infrastructure is fit for purpose, including ensuring Business Continuity plans are in place.
  • With the support of the Volunteer HR adviser, manage the HR requirements for the organisation, including drafting and updating policies.


  • Professional accounting qualification (e.g. ACA, CIMA, ACCA) preferred, but not essential. If not qualified, then experience in financial management is essential.
  • Minimum of 2-3 years of experience in a senior operational and/or finance role, preferably within the non-profit sector.
  • Strong knowledge of financial principles, budgeting, and financial analysis.
  • Experience with property renovations, fit-out and operations for a multi-site organisation.
  • Proven leadership skills with the ability to motivate and inspire teams.
  • Excellent communication and people skills, with the ability to collaborate effectively with colleagues at all levels.
  • Strategic thinker with the ability to translate financial data into actionable insights.
  • Commitment to TLP's mission and values.


Salary: circa £45,000

Benefits: 3% employer contribution towards pension, 20 days annual leave, with one extra day’s annual leave for each year of service up to five years, Employee Assistance Programme, access to Medicash health insurance and critical illness cover.

If you would like to apply, please download the Briefing Pack for more information. 

Interview Process:

Initial screening interviews will be held with Matt Emerson of Quarsh, ideally face to face.

Once the shortlist as been agreed, the next stage will involve an in-depth interview with Ben Ingber (COO) & Craig Morley (Treasurer), plus one other team member to be determined. It is unlikely that there will be a third stage.

Interviews will take place in March, with a view to making the appointment by end of the month.
