Director of Finance, Governance and Technology

Prostate Cancer UK
Circa £95,000 per annum
We are Prostate Cancer UK. We want a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. So, we work to stop prostate cancer being a killer. We work to stop prostate cancer damaging bodies and lives. Each year, over 11,500 men die of prostate cancer. It’s the most common cancer in men. Affecting 1 in 8 men and disproportionally affecting Black men, who have a 1 in 4 chance of being diagnosed, prostate cancer has hidden in the shadows for too long. And thanks to the breadth and depth of our work over the last 26 years, we’re in the perfect position to sort this. We’re passionate about and committed to reaching men at risk and promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion in everything we do. This includes increasing the diversity of our board and leadership. With this in mind, we welcome applications from a range of backgrounds and experiences.

The Role

We are looking for our next Director of Finance, Governance and Technology to take us to the next stage in our journey of improvement. Ideally you will be a qualified Chartered Accountant who has worked at Executive and Board levels with evidence of contributing to the wider organization. 

We’re looking for a strategic leader who is ACA qualified (or close equivalent) and will embrace our collaborative approach to work across the organisation as a critical friend, enabler, and constructive challenge to the senior team. Commercially astute, with experience of shaping and implementing strategies and business plans to support growth, you will be a rigorous, clear thinker who will help move the organisation forward and lead a high-performing multidisciplinary team.

At Prostate Cancer UK we need the very best people to help us achieve our ambition. If you believe you are a great fit for the job and our organisation, and want to make a difference for men, we hope you will be inspired to find out more. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our senior team and would particularly welcome applications that would help us achieve this aim.
