£60,000 - £65,000

Full-time, permanent

London, hybrid working

Wellbeing of Women is an established charity, saving and changing the lives of women, girls, and babies, through research, education, and advocacy.  

Many of the treatments taken for granted in health care today came about thanks to research we have funded to find cures, treatments and preventions in women's reproductive health and childbirth over the last 55 years.

Over recent years Wellbeing of Women has expanded our charitable activities, which include a successful high profile campaign requiring employers to take positive action to make sure everyone going through the menopause is supported.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a strategic and commercially minded Director of Finance to join the team at Wellbeing of Women at a time of growth and development. The role offers the post-holder the scope to work alongside colleagues to develop services and propositions that will win the support of funders and partners alike and that will enable us to increase our impact.

Key to our future success is the efficacy with which we use our resources to best effect and evidence excellent value for money in order that we can continue to win support for the vital research we fund and our advocacy work.

As Director of Finance you will be responsible for the management of the charity’s finance in compliance with regulation and ensuring that the organisation is meticulous in meeting its statutory duties. You will have one direct report and another indirect report.

You will have oversight of the entire governance arrangements for the charity in liaison with colleagues responsible for the effective operation of the organisation in pursuit of its charitable objectives and to ensure that its assets are both protected and utilised to best effect. This includes acting as Company Secretary, providing the secretariat support to the board and submitting the annual return to the Charity Commission.

The role affords the post-holder the opportunity to play a key role in a small and dynamic team making a real difference to the health and lives of women and their babies.

Application is by way of CV with a Supporting Statement that should set out your motivations for applying and how your work experience to date meets the scope of the responsibilities. As a general guide, your Supporting Statement should be around two sides of A4.

Closing date: Sunday 5th December
