Head of Finance

We are looking for a dynamic Head of Finance to join us at a critical time for Oldham Coliseum Theatre.

We are looking for a finance professional with experience of leading and managing a finance function, ideally in the arts sector or similar. As well as delivering effective financial management with the support of our Finance Assistant, you will need to prepare reports for the Board of Trustees and the Finance Committee.

Applications are welcome from all suitably qualified or experienced people, and particularly from those who are underrepresented in our sector.
