Current Roles

Commercial and Finance Director

Salary: to £67,000 plus pension

Are you ready to develop and lead the commercial success of an exciting, established charity?

Nugent is undergoing a re-envisioning of their organisation from how it presents itself, the range of services and effectiveness of delivery through to cultural change and ultimately how it creates income opportunities. The untapped opportunities available to them are clear and with the focus and direction of their Executive Management Team, they now have the chance to capitalise on these and build their presence and reach further.

This is a unique opportunity for you to join a successful Executive Leadership Team in a highly influential role responsible for developing financial and commercial strategy and leading business transformation. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer and as an experienced Commercial Director, or a qualified accountant and a genuine ‘people person’, you will provide strategic leadership to the Business Development, Finance and Procurement, and Assets and Facilities departments.

You will support your peers and direct reports promoting a commercially astute culture across the organisation as they drive towards their vision of being an entirely dignified and outstanding organisation.

It is an exciting time to join Nugent as they pursue their ambitious strategy to innovate and expand their range of commercial products, offers and services to support and complement the strategic aims of the charity. This role is ideal for you as a conscientious and values driven individual who is prepared to roll up your sleeves and actively engage in achievement of the vision.

The Commercial and Finance Director role is a re-imagined post new to Nugent and therefore there is scope to adjust this role to fit your skills. You will be working closely with the Chief Executive Officer, and the Director of Operations, as the third member of the Executive Management Team.

As a Director you will lead and oversee several teams whose remits cover a variety of departments within the charity. You will work closely with the Head of Finance who controls the day to day finances of the charity, the Head of Assets and Facilities who looks after assets, and Head of Strategic Relationships who last financial year brought in approximately £2million of new opportunities and relationships to the charity.

As with most Director posts, there is flexibility in the number of days this role could be conducted and is not strictly confined to a 37.5 hour work week. Nugent do seek to create a good work life balance.
