A small international charity focused on providing disability services and research to improve the lives of people in the developing world are seeking a Head of Operations & Finance for a highly varied senior leadership role.
The organisation has only 5 staff, but has wheelchair assembly sites and research activity in a range of countries. This role will be the number 2 to the CEO, and there may be the opportunity to transition into the CEO position in the near future.
The role will be office based in London, with some flexibility to work from home, and will be highly varied covering a range of duties from budgeting and financial management, managing logistics for international programmes, supporting fundraising activities, bids & events, overseeing research programmes and contributing to marketing.
The organisation is seeking a smart & driven individual full of energy and with a versatile skill-set. Experience in the charity sector, commercial sector or running a small business would all be interesting backgrounds to succeed in this role.
The split of the work is expected to be approximately 30% each on finance, fundraising and programmes.
Typical duties would include:
-The primary point of contact for the charity’s external accountants and auditors both for the UK & US arm of the charity, liaising with them on any day-to-day matters.
-Responsible for overseeing monthly and annual accounts both in the UK and in the US and for ensuring that all reporting, payroll, and any other legal obligations in both jurisdictions are met in time
-Responsible for preparing budgets, cost and revenue analysis and any other financial and/or operational reporting required by the CEO and/or the Board of Trustees, including materials for quarterly board meetings and for our annual report.
-Capable of working alongside Programmes Manager and the CEO to oversee operations and logistics of the Kenyan, Indian and Haitian centres.
-Capable of working alongside the Director of Development and the CEO on a fundraising strategy and budget, a comprehensive donor classification, generating fundraising ideas and being responsible for preparing high standard presentations for current and potential donors to support fundraising efforts.
-Responsible for the management of a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system, Salesforce, following the guidance of the CEO and Director of Development.
-Responsible for overseeing website maintenance and for liaising with external web developers on any issues, improvements and/or campaigns.
-Responsible for overseeing any tax matters, such as VAT exemptions, GiftAid claims in the UK, correct state registrations in the US for fundraising purposes, etc
Ideally the organisation is seeking a degree qualified individual with some exposure to budgeting & finance, and broader operational duties – although you will be supported by an external accountant in this role.
