Is to provide financial control, management and reporting to support our day-to-day operational services, business systems and governance. We are a long-established, caring charity gearing up to grow. We currently have an office in Newick but given the geography of our area the role can be managed remotely with occasional visits only to Newick and to other venues to meet with the team.
The Finance and Business Manager will be a key player in the charity leadership in contact with Trustees and managers and liaising with frontline staff, clients, carers, funders and all partner organisation colleagues. The role requires a dynamic multi-tasker and people-person of integrity who is also keen to deliver a professional client finance service.
We want Headway to be cost-efficient, competitive and 100% client and carer friendly in all financial transactions. This will help us achieve excellent, user-friendly, communications around all aspects of our finance and business.
There is plenty of opportunity to shape the finance and business function and make the role your own whilst helping the charity evidence its financial value. A go-ahead approach to setting and delegating budgets, sharing finance information and securing best value will be timely across our changing team.
There is also scope to work with the Chief Executive to progress business sponsorship, funding development and use of IT as part of business planning and strategy.
