Bond is the UK membership body for organisations working in international development or supporting those that do through funding, research, training and other services. They have over 450 members ranging from large agencies with a world-wide presence to smaller, specialist organisations working in certain regions or with specific groups of people.
Prospectus sought an interim Finance and Operations Director to be responsible for the sound management of Bond's budget and finances, as well as providing a key role across the organisation to support other teams to maximise the benefits of income from grants, partnerships and earned income. The candidate needed strong experience in financial management, including a proven ability to manage across a diverse set of income streams, programmes and projects.
Prospectus was delighted in appointing Charles Hurtley, a highly committed qualified accountant with a strong track record in financial management. He offers the added benefit of experience in administration and customer services, and is particularly expert in the provision of IT systems and software solutions. He also has extensive experience in change management including start-up environments.
