Every day, in the UK, over 160 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and over 30 die of the disease. Prostate cancer has rarely been out of the news, having become the most commonly diagnosed cancer in 2018, and having then suffered the biggest drop off in referrals and treatments of all cancers since the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
We have a bold strategic ambition that informs everything we do – we want to see a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. Today, Prostate Cancer UK is leading the fight against prostate cancer by funding ground-breaking research, supporting men with advice and information and influencing for change in UK policy and health services. We are also starting the conversations that need to happen across the UK so that people become more aware about prostate cancer and their personal risk.
As Director of Finance, you will play a critical role within Prostate Cancer UK, working alongside our Chair, Treasurer and wider Board of Trustees, together with our new Chief Executive and vibrant Leadership team. You will be instrumental in making sure that we are in the best shape to realise our ambition; and you will help us uphold the highest standards of governance; taking the lead in bringing together our approach to business planning and future strategic development.
We’re looking for a strategic leader who is ACA qualified (or close equivalent) and will embrace our collaborative approach to work across the organisation as a critical friend, enabler and constructive challenge to the senior team. Commercially astute, with experience of shaping and implementing strategies and business plans to support growth, you will be a rigorous, clear thinker who will help move the organisation forward and lead a high-performing multidisciplinary team.
At Prostate Cancer UK we need the very best people to help us achieve our ambition. If you believe you are a great fit for the job and our organisation, and want to make a difference for men, we hope you will be inspired to find out more. We are committed to increasing the diversity of our senior team and would particularly welcome applications that would help us achieve this aim.
