Myeloma UK is the only UK charity focused on myeloma and its related conditions. We ensure people affected by myeloma get the support, information and treatments they need and fund essential research towards a cure. We are here for people affected by myeloma, for healthcare professionals and researchers – and anyone who wants to be part of the cure, to make sure no-one faces myeloma alone because together we are the cure.

It is an exciting time to be joining Myeloma UK having recently launched our new strategy. We have the ambition to double our income over the next five years, allowing us to significantly increase both our reach and impact so that those affected by myeloma can live longer and have better quality lives.

To support our vision for a world where myeloma doesn’t exist, and due to an impending retirement, we are looking to recruit into the business critical role of Director of Finance. With accountability for the financial stewardship of the charity, encompassing effective financial control and reporting, you will also play a major role in shaping the strategic development and future direction of Myeloma UK, working with colleagues at the cutting edge of myeloma research, advocacy, and support. As a member of an experienced Executive Leadership team, you will work collaboratively to develop Myeloma UK’s strategies, goals, priorities and outcomes and report progress to Board.

The role requires a qualified accountant who is an inspiring and solutions-focused leader, able to demonstrate relevant experience of having supported the ongoing development and strategic growth of an organisation, either within the voluntary or private sector. The successful candidate will also bring well-developed business/commercial skills and the ability to get “behind the numbers” and carry out complex numerical and financial calculations and analysis to allow well-informed commercial decisions.
