Community Foundation for Merseyside require a committed experienced Interim Finance Director to lead the financial activities of the charity. This role will focus on maintaining the management accounts and forecasts, managing financial operations such as grant payments, cash flow, investment reporting.
CFM is one of a network of 46 community foundations across the UK; we manage endowment investments currently valued at £15m (built from an initial pledge of £130,000 in 2007/08) and these funds we use to ensure sustainable community investment in small grassroots charities across Lancashire and Merseyside. In 2017/18 this was achieved through £2.5m of grants with an average award of £3,924. We are a small team of 15 and operating costs amounted to £446k in 17/18.
The role will include reporting on Financial Management and Control to Board (held quarterly) and compiling the financial statements for the financial year ending 31 March 2019. It is hoped that there will be a 3 month handover period with the incumbent FD during which time support and guidance can be shared. You will also contribute to the overall management of the organisation as a member of our Senior Management Team (SMT), alongside the Development Director, and working with and reporting to the Chief Executive.
