Part time (3-4 days per week)
£44,220 FTE (includes London Weighting) pro rata
Women in Prison (WIP) is a national charity that delivers support for women affected by the criminal justice system in prisons, in the community and through our Women's Centres. We campaign to end the harm caused to women, their families and our communities by imprisonment.
Reporting directly to the Chief Executive you will be responsible for taking the lead on financial management, technology system developments and innovations, as we move to a more agile working model.
As expected for a role at this level you can expect the usual areas of responsibility including managing a small team, operations, IT, facilities, governance, in addition to acting as Company Secretary and leading on the annual audit.
The successful candidate is likely to have a formal qualification e.g. ACA, ACCA, CIMA and bring demonstrable experience of working within the charity sector, ideally a grant funded organisation, and working at both strategic and operational levels.
There has never been a more challenging and exciting time to join us as we seek to diversify our funding base and demonstrate that community alternatives to prison are cost effective and sustainable.
We actively encourage applications from women from a variety of backgrounds, and with a range of skills and experiences. We are particularly interested to hear from women from Black, Asian and minoritised communities and women with lived experience of the criminal justice system who are under represented in leadership positions in our sector.
The role is only open to women, in accordance with the sex-based exemptions of the Equality Act 2010 pursuant to Schedule 9, Part 1. In line with legal requirements and the nature of WIPs work, this post is:
restricted to women only as a genuine occupational requirement under Schedule 9 paragraph 1, Equality Act 2010;
subject to a Right to Work check;
subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service check (basic)
subject to ID verification vetting
