This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real contribution to the future success of Diabetes UK as we enter a new five year strategy period, and will equip the right candidate with a broad range of experience and knowledge as they progress their career.  We have also just moved to a new finance system so there is lots of opportunity to develop this tool to improve financial processes, reporting and budgeting.

You work flexibly in a busy environment and manage conflicting demands by prioritising the most urgent needs of the organisation.  It would be desirable for you to have some line management and coaching experience but this is not essential.
