Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh Recruitment

Director of Resources

This is a new post for the College and brings together with Finance a number of corporate services functions, that have been previously been distributed across the portfolios of other Directors. With a new College Strategy 2022-2027 and a need for whole system change our corporate services functions are critical enablers of the delivery of our Mission, Vision and strategic aims and objectives.

With the Director of Finance having left to take up a new post, the opportunity has been taken to create a new post of Director of Resources. Our aim is to provide these functions with professional, inspirational and values led leadership they need for the future. If you are the successful candidate you will provide these functions with executive leadership, representing them at senior team, College Council and Committees.

This role will provide strategic, executive values led leadership for the Finance, Governance Risk and Compliance, Human Resources, Information Technology and Data Services functions and the cross-organisation coordination of Operational and Financial Planning. They will also contribute as a member of the College senior team to the wider delivery of the College Strategy 2022-2027, leading the enabling strategies and processes that are the responsibility of the corporate services functions.

The corporate functions need to work together to deliver joined up, digitally enabled value add services.  The state of readiness to meet these challenges across the various functions is variable with the potential for programmes of change. The College needs to develop enabling strategies across all the functions included in this role. There is the potential for the property and facilities function to be added into the portfolio at a later date.

Our corporate resource functions ensure the College has the right support to deliver effective services to members and staff. The Director is responsible for ensuring that delivery of these services across the College are fully aligned with the College Strategy.

The ideal candidate will have successful management experience of cross organisation financial and operational planning processes. They will also be degree educated and a fully qualified accountant (CA, ACCA, CIMA, ACA, CIPFA or equivalent).
