We are an £8M turnover organization with 150 staff.

We also provide a range of community and health and wellbeing provision, including the youth services, community hub at Tarling Road, the Harringay Club, a range of gym and fitness provision, and childcare activities. In addition, we run annual community events across London.


This role holds responsibility for developing financial strategies, plans, policies and procedures in conjunction with the Director of Corporate Services that support the delivery of overall organisational strategy and business plans.


Leading and managing the Finance team of 8, you will ensure a culture of high-quality and business focussed service provision. A team of 8 staff members.

Among your leading priorities as our Financial Controller you will drive the post-merger review of financial systems, policies and processes, looking for high quality and cost-effective service provision using scenario planning for various cost saving initiatives, and engaging the staff in the creation of a one-team culture.
