Director of Finance and Operations, Glasgow

There has never been a more exciting time to join the Mary’s Meals global movement – a fast-growing charity, currently providing more than one million children in some of the world’s poorest communities with a nutritious daily meal in their place of education.

Reporting to the Executive Director and serving as an integral member of the Mary’s Meals UK senior leadership team, the Director of Finance and Operations contributes significantly to the organisation’s overall strategic direction and is a source of inspiration, direction, and encouragement for staff and volunteers – both within the Finance and Operations directorate and the wider Mary’s Meals UK team.

The Director of Finance and Operations has a particular responsibility for strategic and day-to-day oversight of all financial and operational aspects of the organisation’s work – safeguarding financial stability, security and probity; sustaining and increasing standards of operational excellence and project management; developing a culture of high performance; increasing staff knowledge, skills and collaboration; and maintaining high levels of trust among our supporters.

In joining Mary’s Meals UK, you would become part of a global movement of people who will simply not accept that any child should go hungry in this world of plenty. We are passionately driven by our simple belief that every child in the world deserves an education – and enough to eat.

With 61 million children out of school around the world and a further 66 million attending school so hungry they’re not able to concentrate and learn, our work is only just beginning. Will you play a crucial part in shaping the future of Mary’s Meals UK, and with it, the lives of so many people who both contribute to and benefit from this incredible work of love, joy and hope?
