There are over 900,000 people with dementia in the UK. This will increase to over one million by 2025 and 1.6 million by 2040.
Dementia UK is the specialist dementia nurse charity. Our nurses, called Admiral Nurses – who we continually develop – provide life-changing support for families affected by all forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Over the last two years we have increased what we can deliver for families living with the effects of dementia by significantly expanding our clinical services, increasing our income and our national awareness.
We are now in the position to expand our leadership team and develop the infrastructure to maintain the level of growth throughout the next three years of our strategy and beyond.
Director of Finance and Corporate Services
Up to £85,000 per annum
Hybrid: London/Remote working – with an expectation to be in the London office two days per week
This is an exciting time to join Dementia UK. Over the past nine years, Dementia UK has grown from 24 to 200 staff, from £1million to a £17million charity, and from 84 to 356 Admiral Nurses. Firmly rooted in our values, this sustainable growth has meant making a real difference to families living with the effects of dementia and the complexities it can bring and continuing to increase the number of Admiral Nurses is a central part of our current five-year strategy.
In order to reach our strategic goals, we are now building the infrastructure of our charity with two new Director positions.
The Director of Finance and Corporate Services will lead on all strategic financial and compliance aspects of the charity’s business. The Director will hold overall responsibility for internal and external audit, risk management, IT support, facilities, procurement and overseeing the financial governance within the charity.
Leading a team of committed staff and working closely with the CEO/Chief Admiral Nurse, Executive team peers and with the Board, the Director of Finance and Corporate Services will ensure statutory and regulatory compliance and play an active role in developing the long-term view of financial operations in order to deliver financial stability.
We are seeking:
- A values driven, financially qualified leader
- A strategic thinker, with experience of developing and implementing financial strategy and financial planning in a senior role
- A collaborative and supportive leader, who enjoys developing others and working closely with colleagues
