Job: Finance Director


Creative Kernow Finance Director

Creative Kernow, Cornwall’s key creative and cultural industries development and delivery organisation, is seeking a Finance Director.

Application deadline 10am Monday 2nd March 2020

Interviews to be held in Redruth on Thursday 2nd April

Part-time permanent role, 22.5 hours / 0.6 fte, £36k – £42k pro rata

Creative Kernow is Cornwall’s key creative and cultural industries development and delivery organisation.  You may not immediately recognise our name, but if you have any connection to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly you’ll probably have come across the work of at least one of our projects:

  • Carn to Cove and C Fylm
  • Cornwall 365 What’s On
  • Cultivator
  • Krowji
  • Open Studios Cornwall
  • Screen Cornwall

We are driven by a belief in creativity’s transformative power and we want more people from all our diverse communities to benefit from it.  Our rich networks and readiness to collaborate make us a central hub for Cornwall’s creativity and distinctive culture.

Creative Kernow is a registered charity, governed by a board of unpaid trustee directors and receiving regular funds from Arts Council England (we’re a ‘National Portfolio Organisation’) and Cornwall Council, as well as from Europe.  We have three wholly-owned subsidiary companies – Cornwall Arts Marketing Ltd, Krowji Ltd and Screen Cornwall Ltd – with their own boards which report back to the main Creative Kernow board, passing their trading profits back up to the parent enterprise.

The post-holder will play a key senior role, working alongside the Chief Executive to manage this complex multi-stranded organisation, which is constantly evolving in response to the opportunities offered by Cornwall’s exciting creative environment.  We seek someone who will fit in well with our team, who will have initiative, flair and sensitivity in dealing with a very wide range of contacts and who will be able to rise to the challenge of working in a creative and voluntary sector environment alongside the more usual demands of a financial management role.  The role is a mix of high-level tasks such as preparing management and annual accounts alongside working with the Project Directors and other staff on detailed project finances.
