Chief Finance Officer



Royal Mencap is dedicated to supporting people with a learning disability to live the lives they choose and to challenge the barriers that prevent this from happening. We are one of the largest charities in the UK, with over 8000 colleagues; 2,000 volunteers and a strong network of partners throughout the UK.

We are now seeking a Chief Finance Officer to join our dynamic leadership team. Our new CFO needs to have experience of senior level financial management and analysis gained in a large, complex organisation. While an understanding of the sector is advantageous it is not essential and we welcome applications from the private and public sector. This role needs an individual who is an experienced and collaborative leader, with the ability to balance the need for commercial acumen with our charitable purpose.

It is a really exciting time to be joining Mencap, as we embark on an ambitious and bold new journey to achieve our vision – for the UK to be the best place in the world for people with a learning disability to live happy and healthy lives.

At Mencap we are very mindful of the importance and benefits of having a diverse leadership team and Board of Trustees. We encourage a wide range of perspectives and would like to appoint someone into this role who will complement our current arrangements.
