Job Type
8 Sep 2022

Are you experienced in donor finance and looking to step up into a more senior, autonomous role? Could you confidently run the donor finance department for a growing international development charity? Keen to secure a role that will see you business partnering with a variety of stakeholders and institutional donors across the globe? If yes, this is the role for you!

This unique international charity is currently seeking a International Finance Manager to join their close-knit, vibrant team on a permanent basis. Reporting into an experienced, down-to-earth Director of Finance, this role assumes sole responsibility for all things donor finance within the charity, from work on funding proposals, to implementing programmes and reporting directly back to a range of institutional donors.

The key duties of this International Finance Manager role are as follows:

  • Take the lead on the financial management and compliance of all grants across the charity, reporting on all financial matters to specific major donors, including analysis of project expenditure against budgets.
  • Business partner with the international finance teams, challenging attitudes, updating budgets according to programme changes and dealing with queries as required.
  • Provide invaluable support to the in-country teams right from the programme bid development stage, scoping programmes to put together budgets to submit to the donors.
  • Undertake international travel to various locations to develop and manage relationships with stakeholders on programme-specific matters and ensure compliance with donor contract terms.
  • Play a leading role in the annual donor audits.

This International Finance Manager role would officially be based out of the charity's head office in London, however hybrid working arrangements are on offer. The role offers an exceptional opportunity for someone with previous donor finance experience who is looking to take a step up into a standalone role whilst liaising with a variety of stakeholders across the globe.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Proven experience of reporting to major donors.
  • Ideally, part qualified as an accountancy professional, but candidates who are qualified by experience are still encouraged to apply.
  • Previous experience working within the international charity sector.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Knowledge of donor audits and compliance.

If you are interested in this International Finance Manager opportunity, please do not delay in applying as applications are being reviewed daily and the line manager is looking to interview ASAP.
