£27,069 - £30,090 + generous pension scheme
Location – Bootle, Liverpool
Work at the Charity Commission and you’ll make a difference every day. To the 167,000 charities of all shapes and sizes that we regulate across England and Wales. To the trustees we partner with and advise. And to the people and causes that benefit from the £10bn generously donated each year by the public.
About the role
These are leadership roles with the opportunity to make a big impact. You’ll join us in one of three teams: Registration, Charity Services or Regulatory Compliance. But as we’re building a flexible workforce that can ultimately work across all of these areas, you can expect plenty of variety and the chance to build a deep understanding of every aspect of our work.
You might be a driving force within the team that helps new charities with the registration process, making sure they follow the right processes and comply with regulations in order to achieve the right outcomes. You could be liaising with existing charities to help them operate more efficiently. Or you might find yourself investigating apparent misconduct, mismanagement and abuse in charities – anything from fraud to money laundering and safeguarding issues.
We’re looking for people who are passionate about improving how we do things; people who can see the big picture whilst helping their team gain that same appreciation of their impact on our work. People who want to make a real difference every day.
Leadership skills are important and you’ll be motivated by the rewards of helping to manage a high-performing team. You’ll need to be calm and positive in your approach and enjoy grappling with complex issues and queries. Previous experience of successfully managing demanding caseloads, analysing sensitive information, understanding risk and making appropriate decisions – even when they’re difficult or unpopular - is vital too. If you’re well-versed in the work of regulators and up to speed with charity law and appreciate the range of difficulties charities might face, so much the better, although we can support you to develop this.
As well as managing your own complex and diverse caseload, you lead, coach and mentor your team, helping them to make sound decisions. You’ll be a role model, actively encouraging, advising and developing those around you and ultimately empowering them to deliver a responsive, high quality service and to meet their KPIs.
About the Charity Commission
We help charities working in every community and across the world to meet their legal requirements and give the public confidence that their money is put to good use. It’s a huge responsibility – and one that gives every member of our workforce enormous influence and impact. Now, as the sector comes under increasing scrutiny, so the scope and profile of our work is growing and changing. Fast.
About the rewards
You’ll be working in a role that that gives you real responsibility, plenty of variety, challenges and a close-knit team to work with. This is your chance to make a contribution that really matters and to make an impact in an organisation where your voice will be heard and your hard work noticed.
As well as a generous Civil Service pension scheme and a flexible, family-friendly environment, you can look forward to other great benefits via our ‘Perkbox’ scheme. These include everything from an interest-free season ticket loan and bicycle loan after two months to free mobile phone insurance and discounts on gym membership, cinema tickets and restaurants.
