Vibrance is a charity supporting many hundreds of people with a disability across London and the south-east of England. We pride ourselves on providing high quality support and our values are extremely important to the people we support. It is, therefore, crucial that all of our staff, including those not working directly with Service Users, understand and embody those values.

For the Director of Finance position this will mean demonstrating to us at interview not only your superb financial acumen and management skills, but also a passion and commitment for addressing the many challenges that face people with a disability in their striving to lead an ordinary life.

Once in post you will not just be office based but will visit our services to work closely with the managers, and our Operations Team, to better understand the challenges and pressures that are a reality in the current world of social care. We believe this makes the role all the more attractive.

As well as managing the diverse Finance Team, you will attend Board and Audit and Finance Committee meetings working closely with the Treasurer and other Trustees to fulfil your responsibility of leading on financial strategic planning within the charity.

You will join a small and supportive Senior Management Team who are fully involved in developing the overall strategic direction of Vibrance.

If you would like an informal telephone/Zoom discussion about the role please telephone HR on 07761 330301 to arrange for this to be set up.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.

What does the future of civil society look like post-pandemic?
In this episode of the Charity Times Leadership Podcast, Lauren Weymouth chats to Dame Julia Unwin, the chair of the Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society about what the future has in store for the charity sector. When it launched in 2018, the inquiry found issues around power, trust and connection within the charity sector. But do these issues still remain? And how has Covid accelerated the pace of change that was required?
