Head of Finance


The UK Antarctic Heritage Trust is seeking an experienced finance manager to join the Cambridge-based team to manage our financial functions to the highest standards. This is a new role which will play a crucial part in ensuring robust financial management and accountability which will underpin our diverse activity both in the UK and in Antarctica.

The Head of Finance will be responsible for the smooth running of the organisation’s day-to-day finances and financial reporting, working closely with the Chief Executive and the Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees. As part of a small staff team, the responsibilities are diverse: from financial processing and monitoring cash flow, to business modelling and reporting to Trustees and funders.

This is a key role within our growing and ambitious organisation particularly as we seek to diversify our income streams and grow our activity as we recover from the impact of the pandemic. We are seeking someone with a relevant accounting background, demonstrable financial expertise, excellent communication skills, a sharp eye for detail, able to work both independently and as a key part of our team, and who can deftly manage multiple priorities.

It is also envisaged that in time the post holder will also assume Company Secretary role for Antarctic Heritage Ltd and may be asked to manage retail-focused staff members.
