How does the Director of Finance & Corporate Services contribute to the charity?
The Director of Finance & Corporate Services role represents a unique opportunity to shape the work of this charity, focusing specifically on the financial leadership and contribution to the broader organisational management of the charity. This is a fantastic opportunity to join the charity's senior management team, playing a fundamental role in ensuring the financial planning, management and reporting is carried out effectively.
Who are we looking for?
The ideal candidate will have proven experience in a senior financial management role for an international development charity or international organisation. You will have evidence of achieving financial objectives and a strong background in developing financial systems and processes including external statutory reporting and audit. You will have experience of being a Company Secretary for a charitable company registered in the UK and with oversight of governance in other jurisdictions.
Due to the breadth and complexity of this role, the successful candidate will need to have confidence in juggling competing demands, with humour and resilience. You will be fully supported by the chief executive as well as a dedicated Finance & Risk sub-committee.
You will be professionally qualified at CCAB level with strong technical accounting skills and an excellent understanding of restricted funding, donor reporting and handling funders for projects and overseas accounting for operations in foreign currencies. Naturally you'll be self-motivated with an analytical mind, combined with great interpersonal skills and the confidence to maintain robust financial controls.
While finance is an essential part of this role, it is much broader than that in terms of the day-to-day work, therefore no two days will be the same. This charity is at the heart of change, so if you are Driven, Courageous and want to make an Impact, building a culture which is collaborative as is its leadership team. Then please apply
