An exciting opportunity has arisen to join an inspiring children's disability charity in Brentwood, Essex.

SNAP supports Essex families who have children, aged 0-25, with any special need or disability. SNAP aims to inform, encourage and support parents so that they can grow in strength and knowledge and become better equipped to give the best possible help to their children. Over the past 27 years, the charity has gained an in-depth understanding of the everyday demands of supporting a child with an additional need or disability. At the heart of their work, they aim to help and empower the whole family, enabling them to meet the challenges they face.

As a result, SNAP have developed a variety of services in response to the needs of Essex families and are ideally placed to offer these to families working from their resource centre in Brentwood, Essex. SNAP are very proud of their ability to adapt and during these uncertain times has found ways to remain a key point of contact and support for families. The switch to remote working enabled SNAP to be there for their families; at the end of the phone and via zoom when they were unable to invite them to the Centre. All of which have been so successful they will be part of their business plan moving forwards

SNAP are looking for a Finance Director to join the team on a permanent basis.

SNAP Finance Director

Location: Brentwood Essex

Salary: circa £45,000 per annum

Contract: Permanent

The Trustees wish to appoint an experienced finance professional to join the team as Finance Director (FD) supporting the CEO. This role is key to the success of SNAP over the coming years as it is responsible for sound financial management including income generation. Candidates who wish to have a pivotal role within a charity will find this opportunity offers this alongside great prospects for personal career development. Always looking at the bigger picture, the FD will be a central figure in the success of SNAP over the coming years.

Responsible to the CEO and ultimately the Trustee Board, the role will be accountable for all non-service delivery with a team of 7 dedicated employees, so the successful candidate will need to be a dynamic, driven and inspirational. The opportunity to make a real impact is vast as the successful applicant will be responsible for overseeing all financial management processes to ensure SNAP meet their service delivery commitments. This will encompass strategic long-term financial planning, governance and funding (grants, trusts and community fundraising) ensuring there is a sound financial basis for everything they do.

The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant, who has worked at senior level in Finance who can demonstrate that they will quickly learn the core values of SNAP. Ideally candidates will have worked in the charity sector previously but applicants who can demonstrate a real desire to move into this sector for career development will be welcomed.
