        My client is the leading charity stopping the heartbreak and devastation of baby loss and making pregnancy and birth safe for everyone.

        Working across the whole pregnancy journey, the organisation funds ground-breaking research, campaigns for changes to maternity care and provides expert information and support. 

        At present they are looking to appoint an interim Chief Operating Officer to provide maternity cover for the permanent postholder and support the organisation with the implementation of a new and ambitious strategic plan. 

        Key responsibilities: 

        • Ensure the efficient, effective development and running of the organisation’s core operations including finance, HR, IT and facilities. 
        • As a key member of the SLT, support the charity in executing its strategic plan, driving changes needed for the growth and development of the organisation. 
        • Overall responsibility for the management of the organisation’s financial plans, budgets and financial performance providing executive insight into new initiatives and scenarios.  
        • Act as Company Secretary, working with the trustees to ensure compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements. 
        • Embed a true team culture within the finance and business operations unit, ensuring balanced workloads, personal development and colleague engagement are at the highest levels 

        The successful candidate will be a fully qualified accountant and have previous experience of working at board level within a charity. With substantive experience in financial planning and business partnering, you will possess excellent communication skills and be able to convey complex financial information to a diverse range of stakeholders.
