Finance Director

Deadline: Sunday 16th January 2022

The Jewish Museum London has undergone substantial positive change over the past 18 months and is now looking ahead to an exciting new chapter in the run up to its 100th anniversary in 2032. With new leadership installed at both lay and staff levels and a consultation process about to begin for the development of a five- and fifteen-year strategy the Museum is looking for a new Finance Director to take over the reins from the current incumbent who is retiring in the next few months.

Our Museum is made up of passionate and expert staff and a collection of over 40,000 objects which are both accredited and designated with Outstanding Status by Arts Council England. Our learning programmes hold multiple awards and our visitor feedback is consistently very high, however, we have much bigger ambitions than our current success. The Museum is looking to expand, in space, in profile and in audience reach. We are looking for someone passionate about our potential to lead the Finance and IT function and be a key member of the senior management team to contribute to this success.

The Finance Director will have a pivotal role within the Museum actively contributing to the Museum’s reporting and strategic planning. They will also maintain an overview of the organisation’s financial affairs, ensuring its financial viability including reserves, cash flow and audit activities – overseeing all financial aspects of the organisation, ensuring that appropriate processes are in place, reviewing budgets and tracking operational metrics.
