Mermaids has been supporting trans and gender diverse children, young people, and their families since 1995. Mermaids has evolved into one of the UK’s leading LGBTQ+ charities, empowering thousands of people with its secure online communities, local community groups, helpline services, web resources, events, legal support, policy and stakeholder engagement and residential weekends. We also seek to educate and inform wider society on gender identity by helping professionals accommodate and reassure gender diverse young people. Over the years, we’ve seen many changes in the language and understanding surrounding gender issues but one thing remains the same: transgender children deserve the freedom and confidence to explore their gender identity wherever their journey takes them, free from fear, isolation and discrimination.
This is both a challenging and exciting time for Mermaids, as we continue to grow. This includes the ongoing rise in demand, and we need to manage that growth as well as fulfilling the support needs of our service users. The Finance Director will be a highly capable accountant bringing strategic financial leadership to all aspects of the role, with clear systematic thinking and previous charity financial management experience. These will be essential to map out and implement the system changes needed to support financial management in an increasingly complex and growing organisation.
