Job description

UK-Med is a humanitarian INGO that has been responding to disasters and health emergencies for more than 20 years. We train medical teams, both in the UK and worldwide, so they are ready to respond when epidemics, conflict and natural disasters hit. When Ebola struck West Africa in 2014 we recruited and trained UK doctors and nurses who helped local medical teams and other NGOs to bring the outbreak under control. We are core partners, providing the clinical component of the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT) in line with WHO standards. 

We are recruiting a skilled Finance Assistant to join our HQ team to provide excellent financial support. Our medical teams respond to disasters around the world and we work with local emergency teams to build their resilience to future threats. Our work has never been more vital, with disasters becoming more frequent, complex and severe. Can you help build a world prepared to help? 

The successful candidate will join a small and friendly finance function playing a key role supporting every aspect of the charity’s work by ensuring the smooth implementation of financial and administrative processes. You will bring experience of working in a finance / administrative support role and will be used to working with electronic financial ledger systems. You do not have to have qualifications in finance, but if you hold or are working towards AAT (or similar) qualifications this may be an advantage. 

You will combine your previous experience working with financial accounting processes and procedures with excellent attention to detail to make sure that your work is accurate and precise. You will be good at working in teams as well as working independently with limited supervision. Your excellent communication skills will ensure that you work well with our suppliers, donors and colleagues. You will be comfortable working at pace and thrive on achieving challenging objectives and meeting rapidly changing demands. 

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a friendly working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through humanitarian work.
