Trust for London
£68,948 - £80,513
London EC1 with hybrid working
Trust for London is a large endowed charitable foundation that exists to reduce poverty and inequality in London. We work on some of London's most pressing social issues, trying to improve the lives of Londoners by increasing their pay, helping reduce costs of living and supporting community groups to thrive.
London has the highest rates of poverty in the UK, and pressure on the people struggling the most is only increasing and we are committed to working to tackle the systemic causes of the stark levels of poverty and inequality that exist in our city. We do this by funding organisations working on the issues identified as being most important, as well as by producing data and insight and supporting research.
Our Finance Director is a key appointment for us at an exciting time for the Trust.
Building on a proud legacy but with a new senior management team the Trust is embarking on the next phase of its journey, staying true to its causes but shaped for today's pressing priorities.
In the next 18 months we will develop a new funding strategy as well as revamping our systems to be more automated, more digital, and delivering a better experience for grant-seekers. We will also continue to step up our efforts as a responsible investor, ensuring our endowment achieves a positive social and ethical return, alongside a financial return.
The Finance Director role is critical to the success of this dynamic programme of change and to our wider mission.
We seek a key partner to the Chief Executive, and a strong finance leader who knows how to empower those around them to achieve, can reflect and identify opportunities for improvement, and can be an ambassador for our work amongst our peers.
