At Guide Dogs, our ambition is a future where every person with sight loss has the confidence and support they need to live their lives to the full.
As we celebrate our 90th anniversary, we are now a Top 10 UK fundraising charity, and have become the largest canine assistance charity in the world, with some 8000 dogs in the Guide Dogs family. We also have an amazing community of more than 14,000 volunteers, and since 1931, we have transformed 36,000 lives through guide dog partnerships.
This is an exciting time for Guide Dogs, and we are now looking for a committed, ambitious Chief Financial Officer to join our senior leadership team. As we continue to focus on our ‘By My Side’ strategy to transform our service provision, we need a CFO who is strategic, innovative, and who understands working in a complex, dispersed organisation. You will be a confident financial leader driven by helping people, who can work collaboratively across our directorates, and with teams throughout the UK.
Reflecting the diverse communities we work with and support, we are committed to finding a CFO who is dedicated to furthering diversity and inclusion within the charity. We actively and warmly encourage applications therefore from a broad and deep range of backgrounds and experiences.
