Since 2002, we’ve helped a community of nonprofits in over 170 countries access the tools and resources they need, and we’ve made it safe and easy for donors and companies to make our world a better place.
You will be part of a highly competent team based in London, with colleagues also based in the United States, India, Tanzania, Mexico, the Philippines and China. We care about using our time, talents, and energy to change the international development system by putting people first. You will have an opportunity to be a part of a team with diverse talents and perspectives whether in finance and operations, programme design and delivery, fundraising and strategy. We work collaboratively using digital tools to connect with one another, bringing a shared spirit that we are bigger than the sum of our individual parts, and with an ambition to make substantive and lasting change.
We are looking for a proactive Finance Manager whose can-do attitude is inspired by a love of problem solving. Adaptable and efficient, with experience of delivering the wide range of accounting services required by a small to medium business or charity operating internationally through regional or satellite offices, the ideal candidate will be detail oriented, a proficient user of QuickBooks (or similar online accountancy packages) and have strong Excel skills.
As the Finance Manager you will be responsible for efficiently managing all financial functions for GlobalGiving UK from bookkeeping to reporting financial updates at Board level. To enable strategic decision making, the postholder will regularly provide a detailed, real time and accurate financial picture to the charity’s co-chief executives and department leads. You will act as the first point of contact for all finance queries both internally and externally, so candidates who are strong relationship builders, natural collaborators, and confident communicators would thrive in this role. A working knowledge of charity SORP, restricted fund accounting and processing Gift Aid claims would be a distinct advantage.
You’ll feed organisational financial information to our UK team as well as to the Operations team in our US based sister charity. The scope of this position ranges from internal financial management and record keeping, to maintaining and monitoring budgets and P&Ls for donor-funded programmes and providing support to individual donors and partners.
Our ideal candidate will be hands-on with a practical and pragmatic approach to work, a positive attitude, ability to work independently on their own initiative, as well as collaboratively, and able to provide financial advice on critical strategic decisions. Comfort with managing a varied workload and competing timelines, using various digital systems, and data analysis will be critical for this role.
Interested candidates should upload applications and provide CV plus one page cover letter stating why they are suitable for the role. The deadline to apply is 11:59pm June 13th. First interviews will take place in the week of June 23rd 2021. Please state in your application if you are unable to make any of the days during this week for the interview. We particularly encourage applications from qualified candidates who are able to start by early August.
