This position is now closed to applications.


As one of the largest voluntary sector providers of Social Care in Scotland, the history of CrossReach stretches back 150 years to the formation of the Church of Scotland Committee on Christian Life and Work in 1869. Throughout this time CrossReach and its predecessor bodies have worked in communities all over Scotland believing that for many people in our society life is difficult but with the right support, at the right time, every person can flourish and every life can be fulfilling. 

Crossreach are now offering an exciting opportunity to be part of that legacy and join their team as Director of Finance and Resources. At a time when CrossReach is taking an opportunity to become a more autonomous organisation they are looking for an individual who has operated at a Senior Leadership level and has a proven track record of supporting other organisations to achieve financial success. The Finance and Resources Director will report directly to the CEO and have a close working relationship with senior colleagues on the Corporate Management Team, providing sound financial advice on CrossReach’s overall strategy. The Finance and Resources Director will be responsible for facilitating the whole Finance and Resources department to bring forward creative solutions to financial challenges, as well as taking overall responsibility for planning, implementing, managing and controlling all finance and IT related activities including the development of financial and technological strategies to improve organisational performance.

The successful candidate will be a fully qualified Chartered Accountant, with vast experience at a Senior Strategic level. They will be able to communicate the finances and finance strategy to non-financial people, in a clear and concise manner and will have extensive experience of building strong working partnerships within the financial sector.

A knowledge of the Third Sector and/or Social Care would be desirable but is not essential. You must also have worked with and developed a finance team, providing leadership and mentoring colleagues to achieve their full potential.

In addition, you are required to have a Christian faith and be able to work within and uphold our Christian ethos. This post is subject to PVG Scheme Membership.
