This is a key voluntary role on the Board of Trustees helping to ensure that The Charity remains on a sound financial footing as the organisation moves forward through a period of growth and change. This is a unique opportunity for an individual to play a pivotal role in ensuring the success of the organisation as well as to make an impact on the lives of those affected by brain tumours.
Supporting the Chair of the Board and the Chair of the Finance Committee, and in partnership with the Director of Finance and Governance and Chief Executive you will ensure that The Charity is run on a sound financial basis and act as a high level representative for The Charity.
The Brain Tumour Charity wishes to encourage applicants from a wide variety of backgrounds who will bring considerable senior leadership experience. They will be an experienced qualified accountant. They must be able to provide oversight and a balance of support and challenge as well as ensure high standards of probity and governance for the Finance team.

A strong track record in finance roles within leading complex and growing organisations.
