The Irish Cancer Society is working to build a future where no-one dies from cancer and everyone affected by the disease has access to world-class treatment, care and support.

As Ireland’s leading cancer charity, the Society works across every area of cancer – from prevention and early detection, through to end-of-life care. The Society makes an impact for patients every day: investing in life-saving and life-changing research; providing practical, financial and emotional supports and services to cancer patients and their families; and advocating for patient needs. The Society partners with cancer institutes, healthcare providers and organisations across Ireland and internationally, to make real and sustainable impact.


Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, and as part of the Executive Management Team, the Director of Finance & Corporate Services will be a strategic leader for the Society and a critical support to the Board sub-committees. The Director will directly lead the Finance, Technology, and Legal & Compliance teams, as well as leading, inspiring and empowering the organisation to ensure high-performance, effective governance and sustainable financial growth to underpin the achievement of the Society’s mission.


The ideal candidate for this position will be a goal oriented finance leader, with strong commercial acumen. They will demonstrate a collaborative approach to leadership, with a high degree of emotional intelligence. Most importantly they will be committed to the Society’s mission and driven to improve the lives of people with cancer.

Membership of a recognised professional accountancy body is required, in addition to a primary level degree qualification in a relevant discipline.
