This is an exciting opportunity to become the Finance Director of an established and impactful International Development organisation with operations in the UK and Nigeria. As the most senior member of the finance team at SDN you will have significant influence in leading and shaping the future of our organisation.
Job Location: Flexible, home and/or our London office. We are currently asking everyone to attend the office on a designated day once a month, so we have the opportunity to meet and collaborate in-person. Outside of this one day a month – plus any other tasks where it is necessary to be in the office to fulfil the duties of your role – it will be up to you whether you want to work fully from home or to attend the office more regularly. We are more interested in the quality and content of your work, and your ability to work with others and to deadlines, than where you work.
Reporting To: Executive Director
Hours: Part-time 3 days per week, but we would consider other part-time hours for the right candidate (we are open to considering flexible arrangements, such as a job share, flexible working hours etc.)
Travel: Approximately 2 trips per year to the SDN office in Port Harcourt, Nigeria
Role Overview: The Finance Director is the number one finance position in the organisation which has overall responsibility for the finance function and administrative operations, including HR, legal, risk, facilities and IT.

You will have a solid track record of team and line management, be equally interested in the financial and non-financial aspects of the role (such as HR and IT), and enjoy working with purpose towards driving change, solving problems, communicating effectively, and prioritising workload across the organisation.

Job Purpose and Duties: The purpose of the role is to ensure the smooth running of the finance function and other support services so that they enable the organisation to keep fully informed of all relevant financial matters, effectively allocate resources across the organisation, meet its contractual obligations and manage risk.
