Livingston James retained by Myeloma UK to appoint two critical roles – Director of Finance and Director of People & Culture

Myeloma UK is the only UK charity focused on myeloma and its related conditions. We ensure people affected by myeloma get the support, information and treatments they need and fund essential research towards a cure. We are here for people affected by myeloma, for healthcare professionals and researchers – and anyone who wants to be part of the cure, to make sure no-one faces myeloma alone because together we are the cure.

It is an exciting time to be joining Myeloma UK having recently launched our new strategy. We have the ambition to double our income over the next five years, allowing us to significantly increase both our reach and impact so that those affected by myeloma can live longer and have better quality lives.

 

Director of Finance

To support our vision for a world where myeloma doesn’t exist, and due to an impending retirement, we are looking to recruit into the business critical role of Director of Finance. With accountability for the financial stewardship of the charity, encompassing effective financial control and reporting, you will also play a major role in shaping the strategic development and future direction of Myeloma UK, working with colleagues at the cutting edge of myeloma research, advocacy, and support. As a member of an experienced Executive Leadership team, you will work collaboratively to develop Myeloma UK’s strategies, goals, priorities and outcomes and report progress to Board.

The role requires a qualified accountant who is an inspiring and solutions-focused leader, able to demonstrate relevant experience of having supported the ongoing development and strategic growth of an organisation, either within the voluntary or private sector. The successful candidate will also bring well-developed business/commercial skills and the ability to get “behind the numbers” and carry out complex numerical and financial calculations and analysis to allow well-informed commercial decisions.

 

Director of People & Culture

As an organisation seeking to step-change its reach and impact, we have a strong commitment to colleague wellbeing and acknowledge the importance of building a positive culture in which all staff can flourish. Reflecting this, and to support our vision for a world where myeloma doesn’t exist, we are looking to recruit into the newly created leadership role of Director of People and Culture.

Responsible for developing and embedding Myeloma UK’s first ever people strategy, you will lead our colleague engagement and equality and diversity agendas and embed our defined core behaviours and values, ensuring the implementation of an ethical and transparent approach to all activities. The role will also provide you with the opportunity to play a major role in shaping the strategic development and future direction of Myeloma UK, working with colleagues at the cutting edge of myeloma research, advocacy, and support.

Myeloma UK is committed to building a diverse workforce and leadership team that reflects the communities we serve, and we require our new Director of People and Culture to share our passion, and ultimately embed a more proactive approach to Myeloma UK’s work on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

We are looking for a passionate, transformational and highly experienced leader with relevant strategic HR experience, coupled with the ability to engage, inspire and influence across all levels within an organisation.
