The Role

The appointment is for a period of 3 years with an option to reappoint for a further 3 years.

The Candidate

We are seeking an individual to provide long term planning, guidance and board level oversight to our executive finance and management team.  The team includes our Deputy Director of Operations, Finance Manager and five Finance Officers.

Why you should apply

We are a registered charity with a turnover of £7.5M, circa 100 core staff and over 300 support staff.  We have a comprehensive range of services and offers which include representation, clubs, societies, sports, events, bars, restaurants, advice services, meeting rooms, hang out spaces, transportation fleet, volunteering, a busy shop and a cinema.

Our Union President, Alex Hovden, says, “The Union is now at quite an important stage financially speaking. We are looking to increase our cash reserves over a number of years, with a view to ensuring that financing our ambitious goals is not an issue in the future. This requires some high level financial input and we are keen to ensure that our Trustee Board is best equipped to deal with whatever challenges may arise.”

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced individual to make a significant impact in a high energy environment, in an organisation that has the potential to make huge strides in the very short term.
