The Royal College of Anaesthetists is undergoing a period of exciting growth and change. This new Head of Finance role will manage the RCoA’s finance function and team, ensuring the delivery of a full and seamless financial service, whilst also driving forward key strategic projects. This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced accountant who is passionate about finance and is ready for a fresh challenge.

In order to be successful in this role, you will have well-developed interpersonal and coaching skills, with the ability to manage, motivate and develop a team. You will also be able to demonstrate a track record of producing accurate and timely annual accounts and key financial data.
