Brunelcare is a charity providing high quality housing, care and support for older people in the South West. For 75 years we have been at the forefront of developing innovative ways for people to stay as independent as possible, creating great communities to live, work and enjoy being in. The charity has a turnover of over £33million, employing around 1,100 staff.
The last 12 months has seen a refreshment of our Trustee group, including a new Chair, and the recent appointment of a new Chief Executive. This year will see us developing our new 5 year strategy covering 2020-2025. Our Care services continue to be recognised as high quality and we have a healthy financial position across the organisation.
We are now seeking to appoint a new Director of Finance, following the external promotion of the current postholder. Reporting to the Chief Executive as key member of the SMT, you’ll drive improvements across our organisation and play a critical role in helping us secure new opportunities to enable us to continue delivering high quality, sustainable services to older people.
As well as Finance, you will also lead IT, Corporate Governance and act as Company Secretary. Our blend of housing and care means that your work will have real variety - an exciting mix of strategic and long-term planning, capital development, treasury management, commercial partnerships and technological development, as well as the day-to-day operational demands of delivering a high quality care service in a quickly changing environment.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant, preferably with experience within the housing, care or a related regulated sector. You will have excellent leadership skills and a strong focus on business performance, together with previous experience of working at Board level or having had good exposure to Board members .
Brunelcare has a friendly, compassionate and inclusive culture. It is essential that you bring a passion for service delivery and work collegiately across the business. You should relish the opportunity to get out and meet managers, colleagues and service users, and generally be a visible, values-based leader within the organisation.
We will be happy to consider applicants who wish to work flexibly.
