Reporting to the Founding Director, and working closely with the other members of the Directors Group, the Director of Finance will play a significant role in the delivery of the Reader’s Organisational Strategy, across the charity and the wholly owned subsidiary company (Calderstones CIC), with three key areas of responsibility:
