Director of Finance


26th June 2022




The Finance team is also establishing new processes to support the growth of statutory income
from the developing Integrated Care Systems and other healthcare partners. This changing
landscape is necessitating increased reporting of data about many aspects of the care we
provide to our Noah’s Ark babies, children and young people and their families. The successful
applicant will liaise closely with the Business Development (commissioning) manager to streamline,re-design and develop high-quality, timely service reports and management information, for both internal and external use.

To meet this expansion of Finance responsibilities, we are creating a new role of Senior
Accountant. This individual will be responsible for many of the key monthly and ad hoc financial
reporting and analysis for the charity and will have added responsibility for supporting the
implementation of relevant new database packages.




We are looking for someone who is:


  • A fully qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) with previous experience of working in a finance team
  • Able to build effective relationships within Finance and with key stakeholders throughout the organisation
  • A clear thinker with strong communication skills, able to write and present clear and engaging reports
  • A problem solver with a pragmatic and commercially oriented approach
  • Productive and able to work independently
  • An organised professional who can manage competing demands and work to tight deadlines

Charity experience, including time spent providing fundraisers with information for grant requests and ongoing donor reports, is desirable but not essential.


Applicants will have experience and/or proficiency in:


  • Presenting information to senior leadership teams
  • Improving financial processes for monthly management accounts, budget preparation and other regular reporting or processing tasks
  • Ad hoc financial planning exercises
  • Building a strong financial control environment
  • Managing cash flow, liquidity and sundry expenditures
  • The use of desktop IT tools (spreadsheets, presentation software etc.) and standard accounting systems and databases
