The Directors of the Companies and the Trustees of the Charity are each developing their respective areas, evolving the culture and working styles. We are looking for an experienced individual who will positively contribute to this change, who has successfully developed and delivered financial strategy within a family owned business, but with a high degree of empathy and interest in the charitable sector. You will be forward-thinking individual, aligned to the purpose and values of this unique organisation with strong leadership abilities, and the capability to inspire, energise and empower others.
