Job:             Director of Finance & Resources

Reports to:  Managing Director

Location:     Flexible, can be based anywhere in the UK

Salary:         £52,460 - £63,976 + 5% pension

Hours:          35 hours/week (28 hours will be considered for the right candidate)

Contract:     Permanent



We’re looking for a Director of Finance and Resources who would love to join an entrepreneurial organisation to help look after all of SSE’s assets; its people, its finances, its technologies, its facilities and its services contracts.


We can’t fix issues like poverty, climate change and ill-health alone. That’s why the School for Social Entrepreneurs exists. SSE helps 1,000 people a year develop the skills, strengths and networks they need to tackle society’s biggest problems. We run courses that equip people to start, scale and strengthen organisations that make a positive difference. But we are not a traditional school. Learning with SSE is inspiring, action-based and accessible.


As Director of Finance and Resources you will build on SSE’s existing operational capabilities and harness the potential of the finance and resources function in support of SSE’s strategic ambitions.


The role will be best suited to a collaborative leader who is comfortable working in a dynamic organisation across a number of workstreams, and who is as motivated thinking strategically as delivering operationally.


Our commitment to inclusion


Diversity is a fact of life. Inclusion is a choice and a practice – for organisations and individuals. At the School for Social Entrepreneurs, our aim is to drive inclusion into every area and activity of what we do: from access to programmes, to grant investment, to board, staff and partnerships.


However you identify, we would like to hear from you. In our commitment to continue to diversify our teams, freelance staff and programmes, we are particularly keen to hear from those who identify as: being from black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds; LGBTQ+; and those with disabilities.

To apply, please see details in enclosed application pack.


Closing date: Midday on Friday 17th July
