If you are looking for a specialist role in international development, where you can utilise your international finance experience with your background managing the finances of payment by result contracts, this may be the role for you. This is an exciting role with a lot of flexibility and some international travel (2-4 trips per year) working with countries across Africa and the Middle East, leading a consortium of partners to deliver a pivotal programme for people across the world.
Key responsibilities will include taking ownership of the financial management of this £100m+ five year programme, providing sound financial support to country teams and ensuring regional offices have the teams and resources necessary to perform well, capacity building where necessary. This role will also manage consortium partner reports, and provide regular updates to the senior leadership team within the charity on the programmes performance.
The successful candidate will be an excellent business partner with experience working in a contracts funded environment. INGO experience is essential, however contracts experience does not have to be from this sector. Experience working with EU, DFID or USAID funding would be an advantage in either a contracts or grants context. The Contracts Finance Manager will be a strong relationship builder, able to influence and act as a credible partner to finance and non-finance stakeholders. We are looking for fully qualified accountants (ACA, ACCA, CIMA, CIPFA) who combine this technical ability with exceptional communication skills. Experience working in a commercial organisation who work on government funded international development programmes are encouraged to apply.
Key skills required include; contracts financial management, donor reporting, budgeting and forecasting, management reporting, financial accounting and finance business partnering.
