The Rivers Trust is the umbrella organisation for a network of 65 Rivers Trusts, each delivering improvements to rivers at a local scale for the benefit of thriving communities and wildlife throughout the UK and the island of Ireland. Rapid expansion of the organisation in the past two years has created the need for a larger team to manage its finances.
The finance team is loosely based around an office in Stoke Climsland in East Cornwall, but have become accustomed to working from home and so we would welcome applications from candidates anywhere in the South West of England or further afield. Both roles below would require attendance at the office once or twice a month, and the Finance Director would also need to attend board and committee meetings in London up to 8 times a year, but they will both be based at home.
Finance Director. Circa £70K.
Our current part-time (0.6 FTE) Head of Finance is leaving us in December after 3 years in post because the role needs someone who can commit to working full time, after two years of rapid growth in turnover, head count and complexity of projects. The Rivers Trust is seeking to appoint an experienced accountant with knowledge of the not for profit and charitable sectors, who is a very able manager, communicator and team player. Our charity is growing very rapidly and we are seeking a leader who can play a central role, working alongside the Chief Executive and Operations Director, to develop the organisation and enable it to grow sustainably.
