This is a fantastic opportunity for a proven Finance Director to join a wonderful charity at an exciting time. Reporting to the Chief Executive, the Finance Director will play a key strategic role, overseeing corporate functions and developing and implementing a new fundraising strategy to grow the organisation in line with its aims and objectives given the promising new platform the recent merger has created.
The Aspens goal is to contribute positively to a world which accepts and understands that people on the autistic spectrum, or with learning, physical or other disabilities, have opportunities to experience a better quality of life, increased independence and self-esteem. The recent union of Pepenbury and Autism Sussex has created a larger and more sustainable charity ready to grow and thrive - and ultimately, better support provide a wider range of specialist support services across London, Surrey, Kent, East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton & Hove.
The Finance Director will oversee corporate functions and will develop and implement a financial strategy and plan which supports the effective and smooth consolidation of the two charities. The post holds a key and broad remit, advising and updating the committees and Board on strategic direction and implementing Board decisions to ensure long term sustainability of the organisation. The successful candidate will also interact with Business Development and external contacts with other external agencies to ensure the long term financial security and stability of the organisation.
The successful candidate will be a commercially-minded, strategic leader with full CCAB qualification; and, whilst you will need to demonstrate a relevant proven track record of delivering in a similar role, we are open to outstanding 'progressive’ candidates applying too.
It is important to note that you will need to be able to travel to locations not easily accessible by public transport across Surrey, Sussex and South London.
