Head of Finance
Our client is a well-established social enterprise and charity first established nearly 30 years ago and making a monumental global impact ever since. They focus on transforming the lives of disabled individuals around the world. They work with several local, national and international partners to provide innovative and practical solutions to projects across India, Africa and Southern Asia.
Our client is looking for a finance-focused and numbers-driven individual to develop and achieve organisational goals. People are the most important part of this organisation and its continued success, in providing global support to those in need, relies on the skills, experience and judgement of all its staff.
This is an exciting time to join the organisation and presents the opportunity to make a tangible difference to both the organisation and the wider global community. The Head of Finance needs to have excellent technical capabilities but equally important are the abilities to work with others and a drive to develop a small global finance team.
As the Head of Finance you will be responsible for managing and co-ordinating the team, providing a strategic oversight within a small global finance team. In addition, you will take responsibility for the financial accounting, associated reporting and internal controls ensuring compliance with corporate policies, regulatory, government and UK charity filings for the organisation.
To be successful in this role you should ideally be a qualified accountant, with experience gained in a strong financially controlled environment. You should have excellent attention to detail and great communication skills with a collaborative approach. If you are looking to add your technical financial and numerical skillset to drive future developments within a fantastic and reputable organisation within the Third Sector this is the ideal role for you.
This is an excellent opportunity in a challenging yet hugely rewarding environment. Interested parties should apply accordingly or contact Mike Pritchard-Howarth in the first instance for a confidential conversation. Contact details can be found via the Newman Stewart website.
