Founded in 1885 and with over 14,000 members and 5000 students, the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) is a UK-based international accountancy membership and standard-setting body; the only such body globally dedicated to public financial management.  We believe that improving public services is the key to changing lives for the better and that good public financial management is central to achieving this ambition. Our educational and advisory services support our members, students and other public finance professionals throughout their careers, helping them add value to their teams and the organisation for which they work. Through our work, we help ensure public money is raised and spent with the highest degree of openness.  We are committed to making a real difference to the world we live in.

Two years into ‘Making it Count’, our current five year strategic roadmap, we are seeking to appoint a Head of Commercial Performance to help position us as a leader in the global finance market. This will be achieved through the definition and delivery of sector leading commercial and marketing strategies, products and services that resonate with the markets we serve, helping us to deliver an outstanding member experience, secure sustainable revenue growth, and do more for public finance professionals everywhere. In this role, you’ll elevate organisational capability generally, helping to reset our commercial culture, introducing new ways of working, and developing a dedicated, talented team to maximise impact.

We are looking for a strategic, inspiring and energetic leader with a track record of having successfully architected and implemented commercial strategies and launched new products to deliver profitable revenue growth, ideally in an internationally active organisation of similar scale, scope and complexity.  Whist prior exposure to the accounting profession will be beneficial, we’re open minded regarding your background, cognisant of the lessons we can learn from other sectors, and we’re open to challenge on how we approach markets. 

We think it’s an exciting time to join CIPFA and we would love you to join us on our journey.
