About us. Pilgrims’ Friend Society’s vision is to have a significant evangelical Christian impact alongside churches in all of those communities where we operate and to grow in response to accelerating gospel need as our population ages. We are a leading Christian provider of residential, dementia care and housing for older people, tracing our history back to Wilberforce, Shaftesbury and Spurgeon. With 15 schemes throughout England, caring for around 450 people, we also provide resources such as books, other publications, conferences and seminars on Christian perspectives on caring for older people.
About the role: Pilgrim’s Friends Society has ambitious plans to grow over the next few years and we are looking for a Director of Finance who can help us achieve those ambitions. Working as a key part of the Executive Leadership Team, you will use your experience and commercial acumen to lead the charity through the financial challenges of investing in our Renewal Programme designed to build 6 new homes over the next twelve years to replace smaller and older operations whilst overseeing the day to day financial management of the charity.
About you: You will be an experienced finance professional looking for their next big challenge with experience of working in an organisation of similar scale or larger to PFS (500 staff and £11m turnover) and within a growth environment. Given our expansion plans, knowledge of (or capacity to develop knowledge of) charitable and social investment fundraising is key and knowledge of funding sources such as bank and social investment is highly desirable.
