Spark Inside is an award-winning charity that has transformed the lives of over 1,000 people living and working in our prisons. We have pioneered coaching in prisons, showing the value of coaching to change lives and systems. In the next decade, we set out to make coaching available to anyone who wants it in the justice system and aim to reach 10,000 young people with our coaching programmes.
We are one of the first organisations to take life coaching to people living and working in prison and to use systems coaching to bring together staff and prisoners in UK prisons. Our expert coaches are qualified and trained professionals. In addition to developing and delivering innovative coaching programmes, we are also committed to working with parliamentarians and government officials to influence criminal justice policy, and shift the perception of people in prison, platforming their voices and highlighting their unlocked potential.
In addition to our coaching programmes for people in prison, we have also begun coaching prison staff and young people in the community.
We’re hiring a Head of Finance and Operations to join our Senior Leadership Team. The post holder will lead on financial management, financial processes, office systems (including IT), and central administration. In addition, the Head of Finance and Operations will work closely with the Chief Executive and colleagues in the development of the charity. The role works closely with Spark Inside Treasurer and administers the Finance Committee of the Board.
We are looking for a qualified accountant who can both think strategically and who is also able to see the details and work in a ‘hands-on’ problem-solving way. In short, we need you to take full responsibility for the back office functions of Spark Inside, achieving excellent results.
