Alex TLC are looking for candidates who can offer robust, strategic financial analysis incorporating extensive experience in charity sector accounting, alongside astute business acumen. The Chief Financial Officer will work closely with the Chief Executive Officer to lead the charity through the Covid-19 crisis and initiate further opportunities for growth. He/She will also be responsible for all financial functions and policies, Board reporting, ensuring efficacy and efficiency of accounting systems, supervision and training of relevant staff.
As a rare disease charity, income opportunities are limited, however, Alex TLC has successfully diversified income streams to grow from a tiny volunteer-led support group, to the "go to" charity supporting sufferers of all genetic leukodystrophies in the UK, recommended and supported by NHS professionals. Our ability to innovate has led to a small charity shop chain supporting charitable core costs, a Social Enterprise Support Funded e-Commerce viablity project, significant Covid-19 emergency grant funding, increased corporate support and a pioneering Digital Support Strategy for our beneficiaries.
The position will suit experienced charity finance professionals seeking involvement in a fulfilling role to improve outcomes for those affected by devastating and often terminal neuro-degenerative conditions.
The role is part time, 3 days per week, based at our head office in Peckham, London SE15. During the Covid-19 situation the ability to work from home is essential, although some Covid-safe visits to the office may be required for supervision and training purposes.
