East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure Ltd is seeking a talented finance and commercial operations professional to join our leisure trust and help to shape our business.


As a member of the senior management team, the Director of Finance and Commercial Services will contribute to the collective leadership of the charity, taking responsibility for the organisation’s financial management, and resources and acting as company secretary. The role offers an exciting opportunity for an astute and imaginative professional to ensure that the organisation continues to grow its impact as a cultural and leisure operator locally through the delivery of high quality culture and leisure services. You will take a lead in developing innovative programmes and strategic partnerships to build ERCL’s reputation as an entrepreneurial leader in the sector.


The assistant director will work closely with the Chief Executive, the heads of library, arts, sports, venues and community facilities and key trustees to ensure that an appropriate financial and governance framework is in place to guide the charity’s decision-making and risk management.


The post holder will provide effective management of the central support resources, many of which are provided through third-party contracts and Service Level Agreements, and will provide guidance to the chief executive and other senior management team members to enable them to fulfil their responsibilities.


On 2 July 2015, East Renfrewshire Council transferred the delivery of its culture and leisure services to an arms-length organisation, East Renfrewshire Culture & Leisure Limited. The successful applicant will be an employee of ERCL.
