        Refuge Council – Executive Director of Finance and Resources

        The Refugee Council is a leading charity working with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK founded in 1951.

        Allen Lane partnered with Refugee Council to secure the Executive Director of Finance and Resources.

        The brief

        Refuge Council was looking for a permanent Executive Director of Finance and Resources to join a newly formed senior leadership team at a time of organisational growth and profile raising. The back office of the organisation was in need of modernisation and the new Executive Director of Finance and Resources would be tasked with leading a transformation programme across corporate services, ensuring the organisation be fit for future purpose.

        Refugee Council needed an inspirational, collaborative and inclusive leader with excellent interpersonal skills, energy and ambition.

        The challenge

        We needed to strike a fine balance in our search between candidates with the ambition and drive to step up to the challenges of the role, whilst also being experienced enough to effectively lead the organisation during a time of change. Given the organisation’s mission, it was key we provided a diverse and inclusive shortlist of high calibre talent

        Approach

        We utilised our broad networks across the charity sector and created and oversaw a targeted media campaign. This resulted in us being able to provide the client with a broad and diverse shortlist of candidates, 40% of which was made up of individuals with protected characteristics.

        Results

        The new Executive Director of Finance and Resources joined the organisation in July 2022, joining from her former position as Finance Director of The Children’s Society, and is off to a flying start.
