Oxford, Oxfordshire
from £40,000 per year
Permanent, Part-time, Flexible, Full-time
Job description

Global Canopy is a data-driven non-profit that targets the market forces destroying nature. We do this by improving transparency and accountability. We provide innovative open-access data, clear metrics, and actionable insights to leading companies, financial institutions, governments and campaigning organisations worldwide. 

Global Canopy’s Finance Business Partners play a crucial role in supporting the programme teams to steward the organisation’s financial resources to achieve maximum impact, ultimately supporting a global shift to a deforestation free economy. You will be an excellent communicator and relationship builder, able to work well with non-financial staff and empower them to manage their budgets to deliver outstanding projects within the resource constraints that exist. 

With funding from many different sources combining to fund a range of interrelated projects, there is complexity to the finances. Your job is to keep across the detail, at the same time as keeping track of the bigger picture.

We are a flexible organisation, with many part time staff, and a hybrid, home-office working arrangement. We will consider part-time as well as full-time applications for this role. There are two positions available.

To be successful in this role, these are the things that will matter the most:

  • Ability to build relationships and support programme colleagues on the financial aspects of their work

  • Technically competent to prepare and interpret reliable financial reports

  • Solutions focused, taking responsibility for your work within a small team

At Global Canopy, we value diversity and inclusion. You can read our diversity statement on our website. We encourage applications from all backgrounds and are committed to having a team with a diverse set of skills, experiences and abilities. We are committed to reducing systemic barriers in our recruitment processes. We strongly encourage those from diverse backgrounds to apply and not self-reject based on the listed criteria in the job pack.

Global Canopy works on issues of tropical deforestation. We are particularly interested in strengthening our team to include those with a background from forest regions such as Latin America and South East Asia. We would welcome applications from people from these regions.

Global Canopy is an inclusive employer and accommodations will be made to allow anyone who requires additional support to apply for this role. Please get in touch with us if you require any additional support.
