Consortium for Street Children
EC2A, London
c. £40,000 pro rata, per annum
Permanent, Part-time
Job description

We are looking for a Head of Finance and Operations to take responsibility for our financial processes and ensure appropriate policies, procedures and operational support are all in place. 

Here at the Consortium for Street Children, we focus on the world’s most vulnerable and disenfranchised population, street children, and use our strength to advocate tirelessly for them.

You’ll be joining us at a pivotal moment in our development, working closely alongside our CEO and Trustees to ensure we achieve our five-year plan by building further upon our current systems and developing our small, but powerful, international human rights organisation.

Our ambitious strategy envisages 5 goals: 

  1. Compel governments to guarantee to street children the same rights as every other child;
  2. Ensure street children are included in International Development and Human Rights agendas;
  3. Strengthen and disseminate data and evidence on street children to accelerate action;
  4. Strengthen and grow our network globally; and
  5. Improve street children’s lives by sharing our network’s unique on-the-ground expertise. 

To succeed, you should be a highly organised accountant, or similarly qualified professional, with the ability to anticipate problems and ensure we are legally compliant. Ideally, you should have a background in both finance and operations, however we are open to a qualified accountant who can demonstrate the motivation and ability to quickly develop skills in operational areas.

If successful, you will be joining an organisation whose core values should mirror your own, including diversity, transparency, collaboration, partnership and excellence. We are a motivated team of individuals, each with our own sphere of responsibility, working within a friendly, supportive, and collaborative environment. As an organisation, we seek to work flexibly as much as we can, which is why we are open to the number of days you can work.
