We're looking for an experienced and knowledgeable Head of Finance to join our senior management team to support good decision making and help to develop new systems for the organisation’s budgeting and finance processes.

As a part time position (20 hours per week) we are happy to discuss flexible arrangements to fit in with other commitments and open to candidates who would prefer to work from home across Scotland and beyond.

Dance Base Scotland is a Scottish Charity and Company Limited by Guarantee with a pre-COVID income of £1.3 million per annum. Good financial information and efficient execution of financial transactions are vital for the success and reputation of the organisation and the Head of Finance will be responsible for providing effective and compliant accounting processes.
