Bond is the UK network for organisations working in international development. Bond exists to enable civil society organisations and allies to achieve greater progress towards a just and sustainable world together. We have a bold new strategy that combines shaping UK policy and politics to support a just and sustainable future, with sector transformation and connecting and nurturing a dynamic network that supports our members and ensures that they are stronger together in the face of change.
We are looking for an exceptional individual to become part of the Leadership Team at Bond and make a real contribution to the future of the international development sector. This critical role combines finance and people as they are the core foundations on which Bond is built. Our people are central to everything that we do and we are working to create a culture that is safe, resilient, learns and reflects our values – dynamic, open, influential and collaborative. We want Bond to be a fantastic place to work.
You will need to apply your strong financial and strategic skills to a refreshed financial strategy in Bond. Our finances are stable and we have good reserves, but we are adjusting our financial strategy to deal with governments cuts to us and the whole sector. We need solid financial leadership to do that. We have a diversified financial model underpinned by membership fees. It includes government and institutional grants, paid for services such as training and recruitment, and corporate partnerships.
We are looking for an open and motivational leader who combines strong financial acumen and analytical skills with the ability to be creative and innovative when solving solutions. You will be a people person, with a good underpinning of HR knowledge and a commitment to equity in the workplace. The role is also responsible for leading on operations, governance, office and IT, and experience in this areas is important as we move to a hybrid office.
This is a diverse and varied role where your leadership can really make a difference. Bond is having an impact and this is a really exciting time to be joining our leadership team and shaping our future.
