Job Description

Are you a senior finance leader that is passionate about making an impact in the charity sector? We’re looking for an exceptional individual with a strategic approach to join our Senior Leadership Team and help deliver the mission of the Bone Cancer Research Trust.

Our five-year strategy, The Biggest Ever Commitment to Primary Bone Cancer, sets out our ambition and priorities until 2022 as, together with the bone cancer community, we continue to lead the fight against primary bone cancer. Since the launch of our strategy in 2017 we have made great progress, awarding 14 brand new research projects totaling £1.3million, supporting more patients and families than ever before, equipping them with the vital information they need and raising national and international awareness of primary bone cancer to aid earlier diagnosis.

We have successfully adopted a leadership structure without the need for a Chief Executive. Our Senior Leadership Team (SLT) runs the charity on a day-to-day basis and takes responsibility for the development and implementation of the charity’s longer-term strategy, working closely with the Board of Trustees. SLT comprises the Head of Research and Information, Head of Fundraising and Communications and Head of Finance. The Head of Finance plays an integral role in the SLT with the following key objectives:

  • To lead the finance team within the charity, managing all accounting and finance activities, and ensuring ongoing financial viability.
  • To contribute to the daily running and future strategic direction of the charity as a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
  • To manage key administrative functions within the charity, including risk management, health and safety, safeguarding, premises management, CRM database and HR. 

For a full list of all roles and responsibilities, and a detailed person specification, please see the job description.

The closing date for applications is Saturday 8th June. Telephone interviews will be held w/c Monday 10th June, and full interviews will take place w/c Monday 17th June.

For an informal chat about the role, please contact Liz Eatock (current Head of Finance) at the Bone Cancer Research Trust.
