A message from the Director of Finance

Thank you for your interest in this exciting new role at St Luke’s. We have evolved and expanded quite rapidly over the last few years and this new role is an important step in making sure that St Luke’s is fit for the future as we continue to grow in scale and complexity.

We have a turnover of £10m, around 250 employees and 750 volunteers, and operate on 17 sites across Sheffield. In the coming years we will be developing our internal audit systems and controls, potentially increasing our bookkeeping and management accounts offer to other charities, and significantly growing our lottery operations which are administered by the Finance Team.

To support us with delivering our strategy we have created a new Financial Controller role in order to give technical, managerial and strategic leadership to the team. Prior experience at senior management level is therefore essential.

This is a full time position for a qualified accountant who has the range and depth of skills needed to support the future growth in the work of the department, and proactively support the wider organisation with strategic leadership and sound financial advice.

With the need to develop our financial and internal audit systems as we grow our services and adopt new technology, we are looking for candidates with the knowledge and skills to implement such changes.

This is a great opportunity to lead an established and skilled Finance Team who are well respected and deliver consistently high quality financial services that are vital to the smooth-running of the organisation.

The newly appointed Financial Controller will also take on the line management and strategic responsibilities relating to our IT services in due course and so experience in this area would also be desirable.

Good luck with your application and best wishes

Tony Saunders,
Director of Finance
