An excellent Financial Controller is sought to join one of the largest dioceses in the Church of England.
This is a complex role and rewarding opportunity to use your skills and experience to influence a diocese that serves 2.4 million people (growing rapidly) with a proactive strategic agenda that has emerged from the needs and opportunities of our communities. The diocese has over 600 parishes and 281 schools and its strategic agenda includes work on climate, poverty, children and young people, new congregations and much more.

These have a turnover of about £27 million p.a., investments of about £130m and over 100 staff.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant, with considerable experience in financial and management accounting, ideally within a not for profit organisation. You will be self-motivated and think analytically when maintaining robust financial controls and have staff management experience.
We offer a range of benefits including an on-site café, free parking and an opportunity to work with skilled colleagues in an attractive modern office environment.
