Role:  Head of Business and Finance

Responsible to: CEO

Salary: £37,244 FTE (pro rata)

Hours: 21 hours per week (Though the role is part time initially, there is scope to develop it as new funding and contracts are secured)

Application Deadline: 12pm Midday Friday 4th February 2022

The growth and development of any organisation brings opportunities and challenges and the role of Head of Business and Finance will play a key role in supporting CoLab in navigating change and growth and building towards a sustainable future. 

In January 2022 we launched the CoLab Exeter 2022-2025 Community Life Strategy. It has been designed to guide CoLab Community efforts in rising to the challenges of local and national initiatives to address widening inequalities and complex needs.  The aim is to provide support and opportunity to people who need it most; to improve outcomes and create better conditions for people to lead lives they have reason to value.

The role’s core objectives will align with the strategy to ensure that:

  1. CoLab contributes to a fairer, more equal and inclusive system and city
  2. CoLab is safe, financially secure and sustainable
  3. The Community response maximises expertise, resources and relationships

This is an excellent opportunity to use your professional expertise to provide robust financial management, alongside developing organisational systems and sustainability. The role will be key to enabling us to demonstrate the impact of our work through financial narratives that support a shared understanding and vision to bring about sustainable growth.

This role would suit a qualified accountant with experience or knowledge of charity finance, and an ambition to drive forward financial management, projects, and business sustainability within an innovative and growing charity.

The post holder will manage the Finance and SLT Administrator and reports to the CEO.  Candidates will need to demonstrate a motivation to work in a dynamic fast pace environment with a growing and motivated team, and show innovation for developing financial management in a diverse and socially impactful sector.

To apply, please submit an up to date CV via our website plus a covering letter that is no longer than 2 sides of A4, summarising why you are interested in the role and how your experience, skills, and values align with the job description and person specification.
