Rob Whiteman, Chief Executive Officer

Welcome

Dear Candidate

I am delighted that you have expressed an interest in working for the Chartered Institute for Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA).

CIPFA is the professional body for people in public finance. Our members work throughout the public services in national audit agencies, major accountancy firms and other organisations where public money needs to be effectively and efficiently managed. 

CIPFA’s unique expertise delivers excellence in public financial management through specialised personal development and advisory services to our members.  We also champion high performance in public services, translating our experience to provide insights, research and analytics, information and guidance, courses and conferences, property and asset management solutions, and consultancy.

This is an exciting time to join CIPFA as we implement an ambitious strategic business plan to develop new sources of revenue, whilst further developing our existing international student and membership offering.

As part of the Executive, we are looking for a strategic leader who has awareness of the public sector, the accountancy profession and the educational environment in the UK and abroad. CIPFA is a high-profile influential organisation both domestically and globally, hence being credible with our range of external stakeholders as well as with the CIPFA Council and Board is crucial. With rounded management and leadership skills, we would want to see people who can drive change and spot opportunities quickly, yet effectively. We work in a dynamic space where demonstrating flexibility and innovation is paramount.
