We are looking to appoint a qualified management accountant with charity experience to lead our work on finance and administration to bring in expertise and experience we will need to scale our work in future around the world.

Meningitis Research Foundation: We are a leading UK, Irish and international charity that aims to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of meningitis and septicaemia. It is an exciting time for the charity as we expand our reach and impact to meeting the challenges of meningitis and septicaemia wherever they exist in the world.

The candidate: We are seeking a qualified accountant who will help the organisation run its finances and administrative functions effectively and efficiently to maximise our impact. The suitable individual will be a fast learner, able to adapt to an emerging strategic environment at speed, and at the same time bring great attention to detail. This will be aligned with a positive attitude to challenges in keeping with the charity values.

Purpose: We are about to enter the second year of our 3-year strategy running to 2030 and our operations are consequently becoming more exciting, international and complex than before. This trend is likely to continue and pick up speed in future if we are successful in delivering our strategy. We have therefore taken the decision to appoint a qualified management accountant to lead and oversee all aspects of MRF’s Finance and Administration.
