Chief Financial Officer & Executive Director for Corporate Services

Teach First

Competitive Salary

Teach First is the leading national charity working for equality of education in England and Wales. Our vision is a country where no child’s educational success is limited by their background – where every child, wherever they live, whatever the wealth of their parents, has the opportunity to fulfil their potential. Teach First is transforming education by providing schools with great teachers and leaders. Our strategy is aimed at three areas: getting more teachers in the schools where they’re needed most; supporting school leadership so our teachers and pupils thrive and providing schools with strong networks and a positive policy environment.

The Chief Finance Officer is responsible for the financial management of the charity, now over £52m annual income, including the development of a financial and operational strategy. This is a critical leadership role for Teach First, working with the Chief Executive and the Executive team to drive the vision, set corporate strategy and provide professional and people leadership to the organisation, fostering our culture and inspiring confidence in staff, the Board and key external stakeholders, including our primary client the Department for Education. As the Executive Director for Corporate Services, this person leads those functions which enable colleagues to excel in their own work and which ensure we comply with the highest standards of conduct, performance and transparency.

We are looking to attract a talented CFO with significant experience in progressively more senior financial roles in complex organisations; a seasoned leader with a strong commercial mind-set and ideally with experience leading support functions. Overall, we are looking for an ambitious leader who shares the values of Teach First and who will excel in balancing long term strategies to improve performance while ensuring the robust day-to-day delivery and development of the vital services on which colleagues rely.

Closing Date:  Monday 29 April 2019
