Head of Finance
The Institute of Physics (IOP) is a leading scientific society. We are a charitable organisation with a worldwide membership of more than 50,000, working together to advance physics education, research and application. Our work encourages people to develop their interest in physics, whether in the classroom, in colleges and universities, in businesses, or at home. We do this by breaking traditional boundaries and crossing into the arts, sport and innovation.
We are searching for a new Head of Finance, based in the London IOP office. You will work collaboratively across our London and Bristol teams, being a key part of the finance management team. This is a high-profile role in the organisation and you will be operating at finance director level, partnering with the CEO and COO to ensure good governance is in place over all IOP’s financial affairs, including our investment portfolio, stewardship of the pension fund and investment in a major property relocation project.
You will work in collaboration with a range of key stakeholders, from end users of finance services, operational managers and budget holders, through to directors, non-executives and trustees. As part of the charity management team you will bring business/commercial acumen to decision-making and will be a key member of the management team in that respect.
You will come with excellent finance/business skills and carry experience of supporting and developing strategic financial planning processes in complex environments, whilst simultaneously being able to switch to being hands-on. You will have a proven track record in high-level engagement, with the ability to influence, coach and motivate to achieve the very best for the IOP, and ultimately, for the memberships with whom we represent.
