Director of Finance and Corporate Resources

Versus Arthritis
London or Chesterfield
£110,000 per annum

The charity was created in 2018, following the merger of Arthritis Research UK and Arthritis Care and from the beginning, our driving ambition was to better understand arthritis and its consequence so we could deliver the change people with arthritis need to live the lives they choose. We’re proud of everything we’ve achieved so far, but there is so much more to do.


Our new Director of Finance and Corporate Resources will, as a key member of our leadership team, perform an essential role in leading our work to improve the financial resilience of the charity and ensure the charity has firm foundations for the future. Areas of priority will include strengthening our data and digital systems and leading our work to mature our impact and performance measurement. You will provide meaningful and strategic oversight of our considerable assets including our reserves and evolve and deliver our ten-year financial strategy. You will be a visionary and engaging leader with strong roots in finance and corporate resources. Commercially astute, collegiate and driven to succeed, you will work closely with me and the wider leadership team to lead the charity toward sustainable success with innovation and creativity.

We are looking for a strategic leader with exceptional interpersonal skills and a transparent, accountable and compassionate style. You will have experience of inspiring integrated, multidisciplinary teams to succeed. Importantly, we are looking for someone with a strong commitment to our work, our values and our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) principles. 

If we are to create a future free from arthritis, we must be ambitious and brave and find ways to scale up our impact and reach. We are looking for someone who shares our ambition and who has the skills, experience and values to help us achieve our important goals. It that’s you – I’d love to hear from you.
