Committed to helping us improve healthcare?
Imperial College Healthcare Charity is looking for an exceptional Finance Director with an interest beyond “just” the numbers.

You will need to be a qualified chartered accountant with commercial acumen, and ideally be very familiar with charity accounting.
You will assume a wide remit including the development and implementation of finance, investment, IT, risk management and performance measurement strategies, policies, procedures and controls. You will act as the Chief Executive’s number two, assisting with business planning, and providing advice on the Charity’s longer term business strategy.
