Charity People are delighted to be working in partnership with Carers Trust to find an exceptional new Head of Finance and Business Support to join their successful growing organisation.

At Carers Trust their people are important to them. Without their people, they cannot ensure that unpaid carers get the recognition, help and support that they need.

The Head of Finance and Business Support is an exciting new role which will act as a key business partner working across the organisation and be a key member of their leadership team and will lead on:

* all aspects of financial and resource planning and reporting
* providing effective, business partnering, analysis and decision support, and
* ensuring that the finance team works as a valued business partner across the organisation in support of their work for unpaid carers.

The Head of Finance and Business Support will provide leadership to the Finance team working as an enabler to the business, through ensuring effective practice and excellence in all areas based on their values.

With seven million unpaid carers in the UK today (an estimated one in ten people), declining central Government funding and increasingly cash-strapped local authority resources, the services that The Carers Trust Network provides have never been more needed. Building on our expertise with policy makers and Governments, plus our 123 Network Partners, we are well positioned to champion the cause of caring. With a presence in over 77% of local authority areas, we have the reach and expertise to tackle one of the UK's biggest challenges.

Anyone could be a carer - a 15-year-old girl looking after a parent with an alcohol problem, a 40-year-old man caring for his partner who has terminal cancer, or an 80-year-old woman looking after her husband who has Alzheimer's disease. Carers Trust works to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for someone who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. With our Network Partners, we aim to ensure that quality assured information, advice and practical support are available to all carers across the UK.

About you

* Strategic understanding, and operational delivery, of best in class practices in financial management.
* Leadership and management experience, of a finance team, with a collaborative and flexible approach.
* Strong team player who will work well with others across the whole organisation
* Excellent technical skills.

Strong experience of financial reporting and preparation of year end accounts is essential, along with proven experience in developing and overseeing the operation of finance systems.

For further information and a detailed job description, please get in touch with Ellen Drummond Regional Director at Charity People.

This role is based in Rugby however there is the opportunity for flexible working including some WFH.

Deadline for applications is 5pm on 11th December 2020 but we will be submitting CV's on a rolling basis so please get in touch ASAP
First round interviews will take place on 16th December.
