  • Leadership experience and ability to take a strategic view across all aspects of the charity’s work in terms of its financial efficiency, effectiveness, and viability.
  • Experience of using the Xero software finance package.
  • Experience of using computer databases.

We are seeking a strategic and operationally impactful individual, with excellent interpersonal and relationship management skills, and with the ability communicate effectively with a wide range of people.
