Advance exists to transform the lives of people with a disability or mental health condition. By providing the best quality housing and support services, we enable them to live the lives they choose, achieve their personal goals, feel valued and know their voices are heard. We support thousands of people at home and in the community – people who start from a position of disadvantage due to their health or their disability and who want more choice, more control and more opportunities.
We are now seeking an Executive Director of Finance and Technology to join our executive leadership team. We cannot deliver our priorities without effective infrastructure, sound financial management and good governance. In this reshaped role, we are therefore looking for a finance leader with breadth who will provide strategic leadership of all of our finance, business assurance and technology functions. This is an outstanding opportunity to join a truly pioneering organisation and go on to make a lasting, tangible difference to society.
You will be a qualified accountant, with in-depth knowledge of finance and technology. Commercially and digitally astute you will bring experience of engaging with a Board to ensure that we have a clear financial strategy in place that ensures our future sustainability. You will work closely with the Chief Executive and the wider leadership team to lead Advance towards sustainable success with innovation and creativity.
Importantly we are looking for someone with a strong commitment to our work, our values and a transparent, accountable and compassionate leadership style. We need someone who will be able to lead across the whole organisation, model excellent leadership behaviours and work as an engaged and collaborative colleague committed to our vision.
Experience of working in social care is not essential. Wherever you are working, you will value the important role that Advance plays and will be as energetic and personally motivated as we are by the opportunity to support people with learning difficulties and mental health conditions.
