Scripture Union exists to invite children and young people to explore the difference Jesus can make to the challenges and adventures of life. Put simply, our vision is of a new generation of children and young people who have a vibrant, personal faith in Jesus.

This is an exciting, pivotal time to join the Scripture Union movement. We have sharpened our missional identity and calling to serve the 95% of children and young people who do not know Jesus or have little or no contact with the church.

Re-focusing our ministry on the 95% has resulted in some key strategic shifts and provoked consideration of the most appropriate structure to deliver our big vision. Within this carefully designed restructure, we are creating a new leadership post: Director of Finance and Services.

This role calls for a creative, agile and relational leader, who is able to provide strategic, pro-active and mission-inspired leadership and management for the Movement’s finance, central service and project functions.

They will have:

  • An active Christian faith and a clear motivation to serve unchurched children and young people and see them come to know Jesus
  • Proven leadership and management experience and the ability to work successfully on a strategic and national scale
  • Strong financial expertise and experience (chartered accountancy qualification or evidence of similar professional qualification/ capability)
  • A strong track record in the recruitment, management and development of people and teams
  • The ability to think creatively, embrace innovative approaches and be energised by the opportunities for digital expressions of mission

In addition, it is desirable that they will have:

  • Demonstrable success in cross-functional programme/project management, end-to-end process definition and monitoring, and use of digital tools
  • Experience of overseeing IT and technical services provision

Their leadership will help engender a business partnering, efficient and entrepreneurial approach across our teams, processes and systems as we navigate together the iterative and generative process of becoming an increasingly fruitful mission organisation ready for, and dynamically engaged in, the times ahead.
