Currently over 10 million people are living with arthritis in the UK. Too many of them experience the pain, fatigue and isolation it can cause on a daily basis. We, at Versus Arthritis are committed to changing that and to working towards a future free from arthritis. 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.
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 transform the charity into a financially resilient, efficient, and even more impactful organisation. Areas of priority will include ensuring the charity is at the leading edge in its use of digital and data with effective systems to underpin all that we do. You will also lead 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.
