Rutherford Cross Retained by NHS Credit Union to Appoint a Part-Time Head of Finance

Rutherford Cross is delighted to be partnered with the NHS Credit Union in order to appoint a Part-Time Head of Finance.

NHS Credit Union (NHSCU) was established in November 1998 by NHS staff for NHS staff, to promote a culture of savings and grow the financial resilience of the NHS workforce. NHSCU is a financial co-operative, owned by its members. It currently has over 24,000 Members and £47 million in assets. Today, it is one of the largest and most progressive Credit Unions in Scotland.

NHSCU’s mission is to promote financial resilience, reduce financial stress and indebtedness, while providing ethical financial assistance. NHSCU welcomes NHS staff and their families into their staff-owned credit union and strives to be their first choice for savings and ethical lending.

Their core objectives are:

  • The promotion of financial resilience among its members
  • To offer credit for the benefit of its members at a fair and reasonable rate of interest
  • The use and control of Members’ savings for their mutual benefit
  • The training and education of Members in financial wellness and the management of their money


This role has previously been outsourced for three years, however as the NHS Credit Union pursue their strategic growth plan for 2023-2026, they have identified the need to bring the role in-house on a permanent part-time basis.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, energetic individual to work as part of the senior management team and support the NHS Credit Union on their growth journey. The Head of Finance will bring strong accountancy and people management experience, and strategic thinking to an established finance function. The role is crucial in ensuring long-term financial stability, regulatory adherence, and financial growth planning to the team and in doing so, it will hold one of the SMF responsibility posts, as part of the senior management team.
