Job description

This new role will work across varied charity management projects to help set up a new UK office for a fast growing medical INGO that has already treated over 13 million patients across Africa!

It will include leading on a broad range of projects that support the set up and management of the UK registered office and will require working autonomously while being part of an experienced and supportive team. Benefits are competitive, work is primarily remote and partially flexible.  This is a chance to help set up something new and leave your very own legacy for an up-and-coming medical organisation saving lives in Africa.

Role Context

ALIMA UK is in its start-up phase and is made up of a small team. This period is exciting at times unpredictable.  We need someone reliable who enjoys and has a proven track record of leading and delivering on operational projects for a business or charity while working with senior stakeholders. They should be a highly organised self-starter who is able to work autonomously and lead on projects as well as a great team player.

The role is varied and has a significant financial element, so strong numerical skills and good written communication skills are both important as well as a flexible, responsible approach. Ideally they will also have experience of, and good knowledge of, the charity sector in the UK.

This role is posted as a one year contract as the needs of the business are changing as the organisation develops. At the end of the year the needs of ALIMA will be reviewed and there may be scope to further shape the role, depending on the needs of the business and funding available at the time. 

Competitive benefits:

  • Generous benefits: Medical care, 30 days holiday (pro rata) and 8% pension
  • Position is largely remote/ working from home, with c. two days in London required per month (usually Putney or Kings Cross - N.B. if you are outside london cost of travel will be your responsibility)
  • Hours are partially flexible but require 75% to fall within main office hours for the team (Monday to Thursday 9 to 5)



  • Driving and implementing a varied range of projects that support the smooth set-up of the UK charity, in collaboration with the UK Head of Development 
  • Virtual Office Management, including organising cloud based filing systems, managing resources including IT, coordinating information collection 


  • Working with the Head of Development & Chair to create and develop new financial management systems for the charity
  • Ongoing management of the financial systems of the charity including bookkeeping, invoice management and basic reporting
  • Working with colleagues to produce financial reports for the Board, donors and others on request


  • Coordination of small events
  • Organising and coordinating staff and trustee visits to the UK and overseas 


  • Organise UK board meetings including booking venues, finalising and circulating papers, minute taking
  • Copywriting

Any other duties as may be reasonably required as part of supportive team.



Skills, Experience & Knowledge

  • Experience working for a UK-based charity in an administrative, executive support, finance, fundraising or project management role 
  • Strong project management skills: a track record of successfully driving small to medium-sized projects
  • Strong numerical skills, including experience reporting on or managing budgets, producing management accounts or equivalent
