Head of Finance, Coventry

Are you looking to work for an organisation with aims and ambitions beyond that of satisfying shareholders? We are a membership organisation, and everything we do is focused on our members and investing back in their Club.

We have a membership of over 300,000 households, our highest ever numbers and with over 250 employees in our modern Head Office (rising to 800 seasonally with our site staff), we're definitely not a small operation; although our culture still retains that friendly, 'family' feel that so many companies seem to have lost. Being a not-for-profit gives us a different approach from purely commercial organisations, and means corporate hierarchies and unnecessary red tape aren’t part of our make-up.

We are recruiting for a Head of Finance. The role will lead a Finance Team of 13 talented employees and take responsibility for all aspects of the Finance function, providing a high quality and professional service to The Club and its stakeholders.

  • Work closely with teams to produce annual budgets and budget packs

  • Work seamlessly with HMRC, bankers, auditors and advisers

  • Manage the external audit process
