Why work for us

St Luke’s is a special place for Sheffield and our values run through everything we do – whether at Little Common Lane, in the community, at our shops or at Clifford House.

We are looking for people who really care about the work they do and have the energy and resilience to be with an organisation which is specialist in nature, seeks to be a change leader and treats everyone as individuals.

This a full time role, working 37.5 hours a week, Monday to Friday with occasional need to stay beyond these hours to attend evening meetings or external events. In return for your flexibility, we offer our employees a flexible approach to working their hours so that a sensible work–life balance can be maintained.

We are recruiting for a confident and skilled Financial Controller to provide strong, visible strategic leadership to our Finance and IT Teams, as well as effective management and expert professional advice to ensure high quality, robust financial management across St Luke’s and a small number of other charitable organisations.

Successful candidates will have significant experience in developing departmental strategy whilst leading on the delivery of all aspects of finance, ideally with experience of leading teams from other disciplines too.

You will have a rich and varied experience, working at a senior level in a commercial or charitable organisation, along with proven skills in service development as we will be looking for individuals who can actively support our Executive Team to deliver our vision and strategic aims.

Your inclusive management style will ensure successful leadership on the development, implementation and monitoring of standards, policies and procedures which ensure the delivery of high quality Finance, IT and lottery services.

Your ability to provide scrutiny and challenge on all financial matters will mean that you can introduce internal audit systems that support process improvement and the mitigation of risk.

If you are a qualified accountant with the drive to develop new services through your sound knowledge and influential nature then you will enjoy an autonomous role which is key to the success of St Luke’s.

The clear communication and presentation of information will be a vital part of this leadership role so your ability to engage with colleagues, the Executive Team, the Trustee Board and external organisations will be as important as your skills in analysing data and producing high quality reports.

If you have a proven track record in leading and motivating teams, respond positively to a complex work environment and look forward to managing a broad portfolio of work, then we would be delighted to hear from you.
