Plastic bags, microbeads, wet wipes, plastic bottles and straws are big news. Following the success of BBC1’s Blue Planet II and Sky Ocean Rescue there’s a growing understanding that we, as a nation, have to do something about the rising tide of plastic on our beaches and in our seas.

The Marine Conservation Society (MCS) is at the heart of this movement and is the UK’s leading marine charity based in Herefordshire with operating hubs in London and Edinburgh. We are the go-to organisation when it comes to marine issues and we’re looking for a visionary and driven Director of Finance & Resources to join our team.

You will be responsible for the Company Secretariat and provide strategic leadership on finance and resources across the charity, leading on financial strategy and organisational strategic development, and ensuring legal and constitutional compliance. As a member of the Senior Management Team, the position works closely with the Board and CEO with the responsibility for developing and implementing strategies that maintain the financial and administrative wellbeing of the organisation and facilitate the development of the strategic direction of the charity.

Your actions will allow your colleagues to make a massive difference to the future of our seas both at home and around the UK’s Overseas Territories.

The position comes with the responsibility for managing and developing the finance and Resources Team which includes Finance, IT & Data, HR, Office Services, Facilities and Governance. So the role is broad, but will provide you with the opportunity to develop the organisation’s infrastructure along with our ambitions for growth.
