Chief Finance Officer

Nene Park Trust
£71,600 to £78,000 per annum

Originally established by the Peterborough Development Corporation during the late 1970s and 1980s, Nene Park Trust, the charity that now looks after the Park on a 999-year lease, was established in 1988. We are responsible for over 700 hectares of land comprising one of the most visited country parks in the UK at Ferry Meadows, as well as significant areas of farmland, woodland and open water. Nene Park is also the venue for a broad range of recreational activities which are set to be enhanced. The Park is a haven for wildlife and provides the community of the City of Peterborough, and its fast growing region, with a wonderful series of high quality green spaces and recreational venues which benefit the environment, health and wellbeing, education and the local economy.


The Trust is in a strong financial position at the beginning of new, ambitious five year business plan phase and we are now seeking an outstanding candidate as our new Chief Finance Officer. You will be a qualified accountant with a strong track record of strategic financial leadership and experience of operating as part of a collaborative and fast paced senior leadership team. Growth is high on our agenda and you will be central to this, bringing a commercial approach to explore and develop new opportunities within the context of a robust and secure financial strategy and systems. With Investors in People Gold under our belts, our people are incredibly important, and you will be responsible for a capable team who will look to you for inspirational leadership – your strategic insight and leadership experience will enable them to flourish.

This is a particularly exciting time to join us. We are a fast growing organisation which has undergone a period of major change and development in recent years, culminating in the launch of a new 5 year Business Plan which continues to build on our successful Master Plan and strategy launched in 2016. This is providing the Trust with an exciting future that combines commitment to improve the quality and consistency of our impact, with the confidence to grow and develop new projects.

Nene Park is visited and loved by an incredibly diverse range of people. We are actively encouraging applications from people of all backgrounds. If you believe you offer the skills and qualities we are seeking for this appointment, we very much look forward to hearing from you.
