Mary’s Meals is a global movement supported by people from all walks of life and we are focused on one goal – that every child receives a nutritious daily meal in a place of education. We continue to change the lives of over 1.6 million children who today will receive Mary’s Meals. We offer more than a role; we offer the opportunity to support our global movement in a dynamic and inclusive environment with a real focus on personal development and working collaboratively.
Reporting to the Executive Director and serving as an integral member of the Mary’s Meals UK senior leadership team, the Director of Finance and Operations contributes significantly to the organisation’s overall strategic direction and is a source of inspiration, direction, and encouragement for staff and volunteers – both within the Finance and Operations directorate and the wider Mary’s Meals UK team.
The Director of Finance and Operations has a particular responsibility for strategic and day-to-day oversight of all financial and operational aspects of the organisation’s work – safeguarding financial stability, security and probity; sustaining and increasing standards of operational excellence and project management; developing a culture of high performance; increasing staff knowledge, skills and collaboration; and maintaining high levels of trust among our supporters.
