This is an exciting opportunity to join our highly motivated and supportive team as Head of Finance & Resources on a temporary basis. The successful candidate will be taking on a diverse role with two distinct functions - financial management and HR support.

We are looking for an experienced Head of Finance and Resources with an understanding of charity accounting and the ability to work with charity budgets. You will regularly report to the Senior Management Team (SMT) and contribute to the quarterly Board meetings with support from the Chief Executive.

The successful candidate will have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills, and experience of financial management and HR support within a charity. You will be at least part qualified and a proficient user of Sage 50 Accounts.

You will have experience in a wide range of financial processes and reporting with the ability to present financial information clearly to non-finance people. Above all you will be committed to lead the finance and HR functions within Sarcoma UK.


It is hoped that there will be a one-month handover period with the incumbent Finance & Resources Director, during which time support and guidance can be shared.
