Depaul UK has worked with homeless young people for 30 years, pioneering, enabling and supporting the development of programmes across the UK. Following significant growth over the past 5 years, Depaul UK were in great shape to grow further and expand their impact, profile and influence. They appointed Prospectus to lead the search for the newly created position of Director of Finance, IT and Organisational Performance.
We are pleased to announce that Judith Rowland-Hill was successfully appointed to the position. Judith is an FCA qualified voluntary sector Finance Director with 20 years’ experience across finance, IT, operations, governance and organisational design. She is a commercially focused executive with demonstrable experience in financial strategic planning within the social enterprise and charity sectors, and has a commitment to impact measurement and evaluation. As a people-centred leader, with proven success in developing high performing teams and robust and compliant financial systems to support operational decision-making and strategic planning, Judith was a great fit for the position.
Judith will be taking up her position with Depaul UK on 11th March 2019.
Mike Thiedke, Chief Executive at Depaul UK said “I'm thrilled that Judith will join the Executive Team at Depaul UK. Due to its wide remit spanning from finance, IT and facilities to governance, business planning and monitoring as well as quality assurance, it was a difficult role to recruit. However, thanks to the tenacity and rigour applied by the search team at Prospectus we had a strong pool of candidates to consider. Thank you, Prospectus and welcome to our ambitious team at Depaul UK, Judith!”
Judith said "This was my first time working with Executive Search and I could not have been more impressed with Sara and the team at Prospectus. The process was seamless and all communication professional and effective. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Prospectus to both candidates and charities looking to make their next appointment"
