Bowel Cancer UK

Head of Finance

Kennington, Central London

This is a great opportunity to join Bowel Cancer UK as Head of Finance at an exciting point in time. After years of being a neglected disease, bowel cancer is now quite rightly at the forefront of the cancer agenda, but sadly remains the UK’s second biggest cancer killer.

Following the merger of Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer in January 2018 and a recently launched rebrand, this is a truly exciting time to join the charity. Reporting directly to the Director of Finance and Resources, the Head of Finance leads the running of the charity’s finance operations, to provide an efficient, professional, accurate and robust service to maximise the use of resources and achieve the charity’s strategy, supporting a growing charity, and the vision to make a direct difference for people affected by bowel cancer.

This involves working closely with the Director of Finance and Resources and the rest of the leadership team, as well as being part of the charity’s management team, to act as a finance business partner, supporting and advising where financial decisions are required.

Key priorities for the role include the following:

  • Work closely with senior leaders and managers to provide support, insight and advice on decisions with financial or commercial implications
  • Work with the Director of Finance and Resources to ensure annual accounts cycle is managed to prepare annual reporting of accounts to meet required deadlines
  • Lead on the annual budgeting and business planning cycle, ensuring involvement and communication with Directors and Heads of all teams
  • Providing clear communication and in-depth support by building and maintaining excellent relationships with the business and ensuring budget holders are supported on all financial issues;
  • Quality and timeliness of financial information, both to budget holders and senior management.
