Who are we?


Shaw Trust is a charity helping to transform the lives of young people and adults across the UK and internationally. Our specialist services help people gain an education, enter work, develop their career, improve their wellbeing or rebuild their lives. We add value to every service we deliver by investing back into the people and communities we support.


We are one of the largest 25 charities in the UK. We use our combined experience of over 75 years to support people to develop their potential. We have one goal: to help transform the lives of one million young people and adults each year by 2022.


Working with us gives you far more benefits than a standard package; it gives you the chance to help turn someone’s life around.

We are looking for a dynamic and highly motivated individual to join our finance team. You will work closely with the finance business partners and operational leads to develop, implement and review commercial bids and acquisitions across the organisation. You will implement best practice from a modelling and due diligence perspective and advise on value drivers to inform the bidding strategy and financial outlook.


You will be an experienced finance professional with an ability to analyse data, identify trends and engage and influence a range of stakeholders consistently. You will be a strong relationship builder, both within the finance team and across the organisation. You will have a passion for quickly understanding and evaluating the value driver across a diverse range of contracts and sectors.

  • Have you built financial models to assess or value a new or existing opportunity?
  • Do you enjoy working in a diverse organisation with exposure to multiple levels of management and senior stakeholders?
