An Garda Síochána is the national policing service of Ireland which aims to keep people safe through provision of an effective and efficient service that enjoys community support.

Reporting to the Chief Administration Officer, the Executive Director of Finance and Services will operate in the dynamic environment of a large and complex organisation with a wide geographical spread.  Responsibilities include management of the Garda Vote, the Estimates process and Budget setting.  A key focus of the job will be to modernise the financial systems, financial processes and financial capabilities in An Garda Síochána while providing governance oversight of the annual budget allocation to maximise delivery of strategic objectives and broader reform agenda.

As a key member of the organisation’s Senior Leadership Team, the Executive Director will also share corporate responsibility for the leadership, management, policy and strategic direction of An Garda Síochána in delivering its corporate goals.

This is a rare opportunity to shape the development of the organisation’s finance function in the context of the Irish Government’s commitment to a major modernisation programme.

The successful candidate will have:

  • A proven track record in a senior management role in a large, complex organisation in either the Public or Private sector, with responsibility for large-scale financial management, procurement, and asset management;
  • Significant senior management experience of Management Board level change or transformation leadership in a large, geographically distributed organisation;
  • Experience of complex strategic reform of a finance function in a large complex environment;
  • An appreciation of the requirements of government accounting and an ability to quickly gain a detailed knowledge of Government accounting practices, EU directives and national procurement rules;
  • The ability to work in a fast-changing and sometimes ambiguous environment, identifying key priorities and driving new solutions;
  • Experience of operating in a shared services environment.

This is a Top Level Appointments Committee (TLAC) position.
