Job description

Fixed term - 12 months
Working from home

Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.

Unicef UK is a £100M income, 350 staff organisation and part of the global Unicef family. Work is underway on a new finance system (Finance Transformation Project). This will involve updating our finance systems and processes, with plans to implement a new finance system in mid 2021.

To support us through this project, we are looking for a Projects Accountant who has strong project and change management experience in implementing finance systems in large organisations. The role has no direct reports and will report directly to the Director of Finance

You will support the CFO and FD in implementing a series of other improvements to Finance policies and procedures to improve internal controls, improve cashflow forecasting and automate Finance KPIs reporting.  You will also provide person cover for the Financial Controller on the month end process.

A qualified accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA) preferred but not essential, depending on work experience. You will be an advanced MS Excel user and experience with application of Charities SORP preferred, but not essential. Strong preference will be given to a candidate who can start at short notice.

Act now and visit our website via the button below to apply online.

Closing date: 5pm, Tuesday, 3 November 2020.

Interview date: Wednesday 11 November 2020. Interviews will take place via video conferencing.

We are normally based on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London but while our office is closed, this role will work from home or from wherever makes you happy.

We particularly welcome applications from black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates, LGBTQ+ candidates, candidates with disabilities, and from men, because we would like to increase the representation of these groups at this level. We want to do this because we know greater diversity will lead to greater results for children.

Unicef UK promotes equality, diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We make employment decisions by matching business needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.

The successful candidate will be required to apply for a criminal records check. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from working with us. This will depend on the nature of the role and the circumstances of your offences.

We only accept online applications as this saves us money, making more funds available for us to help ensure children’s rights.

If you require support in completing the online form or an application form in an alternative format, please contact Supporter Care during office hours.

If you do not hear from us within 14 days of the closing date, please assume your application has been unsuccessful on this occasion. Please note that we only provide feedback to shortlisted candidates.
