Job description

Advocacy and Healthwatch are powerful allies for change. As one of the UK’s largest providers of advocacy, advocacy-related and Healthwatch services, this role offers an exciting opportunity to make a real difference, putting people at the heart of what you do.

Are you a financial leader with a heart for advocacy? Do you thrive in a collaborative environment and possess a keen understanding of management accounting principles? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you!

We are dedicated to delivering effective services for those in need of getting their voices heard in the communities in which they live. We’re in search of a Finance Director who can bring expertise, passion, and innovation to our team.

About the Role:

  • Responsible for strategic financial leadership, shaping the charity’s financial direction with direction from and reporting to the Chief Executive Officer and Board of Trustees.
  • Accountable for and leading on the development and implementation of financial policies, procedures, and controls, ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements, including Data Protection and GDPR.
  • Lead on all aspects of financial planning, forecasting, and analysis, ensuring management accounting principles are robust for sound decision making by the Senior Leadership Team.
  • Ensure all budget holders are provided with the relevant training and support as non-financial managers on understanding management accounts, how budgets work, staffing appropriately within budgets and dealing with over/under spending ‘in year’ to provide consistent financial decision-making in Operations.

What We Offer:

A chance to be part of a mission-driven organisation that makes a real difference.

An inclusive and supportive team environment.

A role that is both strategic and hands-on, allowing you to see the direct impact of your work.

Opportunities for professional growth and development.

What we need from you

As the ideal candidate, you are a strategic thinker with significant experience in the non-profit sector, ideally with a recognised qualification in management accounting.

You are someone who has a commitment to transparency and ethical financial practices, you have a collaborative spirit and excel in team environments. You are adept at building rapport and fostering relationships with a variety of stakeholders.

If you have the skills and the drive to make a difference, in what we think is a rewarding role, then we would encourage you to apply today and help us drive change for a better world!

As this role is home based with travel, you must have access to a stable home broadband service, good mobile signal, as well as flexibility with working hours. A full driving licence and your own transport would be beneficial for travel to areas where public transport is not readily available.

What happens next

Anyone joining our team is subject to The Advocacy People’s Safer Recruitment pre-appointment checks.  Applicants invited to interview will need to bring evidence (photographic where possible) of their right to work in the UK and new employee start dates will only be confirmed once other mandatory checks have been completed.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Closing Date:Wednesday 14th August 5:00pm

Interview Date: To be confirmed

Interview venue: MS Teams

If you would like to discuss the role further, please contact Matthew Hilton.
