The CFO position is a new post for Age UK, replacing the finance director role held by Steve Mensforth on an interim basis following the departure of Charles Scott to join Action for Children in November last year.

Arya is currently CFO at Working Links, which is collectively owned by public, private and charitable stakeholders.

This is a vital role as the charity and social enterprise looks to build on its successful first three years following the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged to form Age UK in 2009.

Tom Wright, Age UK's group chief executive to whom Arya will report, said: "We are delighted to announce Rajeev's appointment. He will be a real asset to Age UK, combining a wealth of experience and expertise in delivering social and commercial outcomes with a clear passion for our work."

Age UK was created out of the merger of Age Concern and Help the Aged in 2009.
