Job description

Contract: Full time, fixed term contract to 30th September 2018

Based: Milton Keynes

Your financial management and process improvement skills will help change the lives of some of the world’s most vulnerable children.

World Vision is the world’s largest international children’s charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places as a sign of God’s unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We are also proud to be ranked 9thplace in the top 100 ‘Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For' in 2016.

This is an exciting new role leading on two strategic grant related projects. You will make a valuable contribution to the impact we deliver for some of the world’s most vulnerable children, as every year a significant proportion of the children we reach are supported through grant funded projects.

Your top priority will be to improve the recovery of our costs within our grant funded work, by developing a strong understanding of our costs and cost drivers (in the UK and overseas). You will develop approaches to recovering those costs through our grant funded work. Secondly, you will lead a small task group documenting our current grant processes and driving improvements in key areas to enhance efficiency and effectiveness. You will work with staff in the UK, international grants team and selected overseas offices.

As a qualified accountant, you will bring experience in areas such as grant finance, commercial financial management, pricing or cost recovery approaches, developing and implementing processes and championing change.

As an active Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

In addition to the salary offered, we offer good benefits including pension, subsidised gym membership, generous holiday entitlement, childcare vouchers and free parking.

Please upload your CV and covering letter stating how you meet the essential criteria given in the Job Description using the link provided.
