Job description

Location: London, W11

Contract: Permanent. This role is recommended at 0.8 FTE but is open to discussion at 0.6-1.0 FTE

Salary: £70,000 (full-time). Part-time: salary and benefits pro-rated accordingly.

The Global Fund for Forgotten People is seeking a Chief Financial Officer to act as a key strategic partner to the CEO and Chief Philanthropy Officer.

The Global Fund for Forgotten People is an international charitable organisation dedicated to supporting the Order of Malta’s critical social and humanitarian works around the world.  The Fund’s grant-giving process supports the forgotten, those whose struggles typically do not make the headlines; the elderly, the chronically sick, the homeless and the isolated. The Order of Malta’s work with these groups does not just meet practical needs like food, shelter or medical care, it also helps build community, fight isolation and make a life worth living.

To date, the charity has awarded almost 450 grants totalling over $10 million.

The role of CFO is critical to the organisation, providing leadership to help the Fund deliver on its goals, and specific responsibility for financial and operational direction, governance, management and reporting. The successful candidate will define the financial strategy of the organisation in line with its mission and drive the annual budget process and monthly management reporting. You will also have governance oversight of the Fund’s international structure and liaise directly with the Board on key issues.

The CFO is responsible for all charitable expenditure, including the management of restricted funds and grant payments in line with best practice. The role will also manage the HR, IT and Administration operations.

The impact of the Fund’s work is immediate and tangible, meaning that the postholder can easily see the benefits and reach of their work. This is an important, strategic role with a hugely positive effect on people’s lives on a global scale.

The Fund’s new CFO will be a Qualified Accountant with experience of managing operations in the UK, and ideally also in the USA or other jurisdictions. In addition to an understanding of the UK financial and legal compliance environment, knowledge of the same in the US and elsewhere would be extremely useful.

The ideal candidate will have experience of working in a UK charity and managing restricted funds, as well as a proven ability to develop teams and translate strategy into day to day operational plans.  Engaging and managing the board and ensuring excellent governance of the charity is an extremely important part of this role, and previous experience in successfully engaging and managing boards would be highly desirable.

For an informal conversation prior to applying to this role, please contact Suzie Spooner on +44 (0) 7960 932 315.
