Head of Resources
MAC-UK is a registered charity that was founded in 2008 to radically transform access to mental health services by our most excluded young people.
MAC-UK has undergone a recent re-structure that has allowed us to make a move towards sharing our ideas and ways of working externally, while supporting our dedicated workforce to maintain their wellbeing and work-life balance by gradually introducing a 4 day working week.
To help us move forward and develop these new ways of working, we are looking for a Head of Resources to join our Senior Leadership Team.
This is a role for a vibrant and passionate leader. We are looking for someone who considers finance and resource management as key to enabling social impact; someone that harnesses every opportunity to move beyond process, to build positive working relationships with key internal and external stakeholders. You are definitely a 'safe pair of hands' and come with the technical skills, experience and qualification to fulfil the charity's resource management duties, but your accountancy qualification does not define you and you have so much more to offer within your leadership repertoire.
Reporting directly to the CEO, the Head of Resources sits within MAC-UK's Senior Leadership Team and is instrumental in supporting the Senior Leadership Team to deliver MAC-UK's 2020 Strategy. You take pride in running a smooth, effective and efficient operation. Working across key areas of MAC-UK's organisational management, you will not only ensure best use of MAC-UK's internal, and where needed, inter-agency resources, but will support the CEO to visualise and realise the potential of a bold strategy for social impact.
You thrive when working at the edge of your comfort zone, step up in the face of complex problems and welcome the challenge of making systems work for the cause, not the other way around. You refuse to work within a finance silo and you actively embed yourself and your insights into and across programmes, strategy and governance. You are ambitious and looking for an opportunity to apply your business planning capabilities to an organisation on the cusp of exciting strategic change.
If this sounds like you, and you want to drive positive risk taking, innovation, disruption and better systems-wide impact through an innovative charity like MAC-UK, then we'd love to hear from you. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and sectors.
Applications will be assessed against the criteria outlined in the person specification, see the full recruitment pack for further information.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Please apply before 21st July 2017.
The first wave of interviews will take place on the 27th / 28th July 2017.
