The Donaldson Trust (“Donaldsons”) is Scotland’s leading charity for neurodiversity. We pride ourselves on our person-centred approach and expertise, recognising the importance of tailored, flexible support services so we can truly meet the individual needs of neurodivergent children, young people and adults.

We are on a journey to excellence with the purpose of promoting and encouraging neurodivergent people to realise their potential and are looking to recruit into the business critical role of Finance Manager. Overseeing the finance function, you will directly support the strategic decision making process through the provision of meaningful financial information and analysis, ensuring the organisation operates sustainably and efficiently meeting key organisational objectives. Developing and maintaining effective relationships with key budget holders across the organisation, our new Finance Manager will oversee the preparation of both monthly management and annual statutory accounts and support our future growth plans through the provision of accurate cost models and financial forecasts.

A qualified accountant, or finalist, you will have a proven track record of robust financial management including the ability to get “behind the numbers” and present information and supporting analysis to both finance and non-financial audiences to allow well-informed decisions. An accomplished communicator with the ability to ‘talk finance’ in a language that the business understands, the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate direct previous involvement in developing effective relationships with internal budget holders.  Direct experience of continuous improvement, developing robust financial controls, systems and procedures and embedding best practice as appropriate would be beneficial, but not essential.

For more information on this role please contact Harry Thomson at Rutherford Cross, our retained recruitment advisors on 0131 603 8111 or [email protected]

Donaldsons is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably  qualified  and  eligible  candidates  regardless  of  sex,  race,  disability,  age,  sexual orientation, gender reassignment, religion or belief, marital status or pregnancy and maternity.
