Contract, Full-time
Job description

Two years, Fixed Term Contract (extension subject to funding)
Location: London, or Cardiff with frequent travel to London

Are you a numbers person who wants a hands-on role? Are you used to dealing with a varied workload whilst managing the detail? Would you like to influence the development of a growing team? Elrha is seeking a Finance Manager to manage transactional processing, financial reporting, and our subgrantee financial due diligence and monitoring process.

Elrha is a global charity that finds solutions to complex humanitarian problems through research and innovation. We fund and support projects that go on to shape the way in which people across the world are supported during a crisis. We are based in London and Cardiff, but our roles have a global reach. We’re an established and respected part of the humanitarian community, working closely and meaningfully with our fellow networks and actors to make change happen.

You will be a qualified or part-qualified accountant with strong technical skills and the ability to translate these skills into working successfully with non-financial specialists. You will be committed to supporting your direct reports and other colleagues in developing their own skills as appropriate to their financial responsibilities, and you will be able to adapt to shifting priorities and evolving job responsibilities as Elrha grows. You will have excellent attention to detail along with strong analytical and interpretive abilities, and will use these in conjunction with your problem-solving skills to ensure that Elrha’s finances are managed in accordance with donor requirements. Experience of charity financial and management accounting would be an advantage, as would technical understanding of audit principles and/or experience of staff management.

This is a great opportunity to contribute to an organisation that creates positive change in the humanitarian sector. We look forward to hearing from you.


We are committed to the safeguarding and protection of vulnerable people in our work.  This post is subject to a range of vetting checks including a criminal records disclosure.

Elrha recognises the positive value of diversity, and promotes equality. We welcome and encourage job applications from people of all backgrounds. We particularly welcome applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as BAME and disabled people are currently under-represented throughout our work. We are committed to improving employment opportunities for ethnic minorities. We also welcome applications from LGB and Trans, and non-binary candidates. 

Except in exceptional circumstances, the role will be appointed at the start of the salary band advertised.  This allows for incremental progression within the role and movement up the scale.
