The Head of Finance is a pivotal role within Blesma, leading a team that delivers efficient and effective financial support to the Association as a whole. The main purpose is to hold lead responsibility for the delivery of financial as well as some governance and administrative support services to the Association and its staff in order that Blesma can deliver its rolling five year strategic plan.
We need to raise in excess of GBP3.5m each year in order to continue to deliver our activities and adapt to changing needs. As a charity, we are committed to ensuring that every penny we receive is spent wisely and meticulous financial management is essential in pursuit of that objective.
Reporting direct to the Chief Executive, the Head of Finance will play an important part within Blesma as part of the Executive Management Team. This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced finance professional to join an inspiring organisation in an established high performing team where you will have the chance to help shape the charity's financial administration for the future.
Blesma encourages a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society. With an increasingly agile workforce, we are open to flexible working arrangements where appropriate.
