Interim Chief Financial Officer

Circa £100,000 (depending on experience)

Humankind is one of the UK’s largest drug and alcohol treatment charities. We employ around 1,500 people and support around 85,000 people each year. Humankind creates services and support to meet people’s complex health and social needs, helping them to build healthier lives that have meaning and value for themselves and their families. We support local people to create stronger, better-connected communities. We are committed to fair chances for all and to making sure that everyone can access the help and support they need to realise their potential. By joining our teams of passionate individuals, you will be contributing to making this happen. You can really make a difference by believing in our service users and their ability to make positive changes when they don’t always believe in themselves.

The Role

We have seen significant growth in the last five years, growing from c£25 million turnover to now £75-80 million. This growth has inevitably led to some stretch for our corporate centre. At this stage in our development, we require additional strategic financial support to enable us to pursue new strategic ambitions, and to create a new financial plan and strategy to be able to resource these ambitions. We also need to continue the development of our IT infrastructure and service support for our staff. Over the last five years we have achieved most of our strategic aims, we have weathered the bite of austerity, adapted and responded to COVID and we have continued to grow and prosper. Our overall financial health is strong; however, we want to ensure that we have a greater impact and operate more effectively going forward. We are seeking an experienced Interim CFO to assist us on the next stage of our growth journey.
