Are you passionate about international development?

Do you want to use your finance skills to support the implementation of overseas programmes, improving the lives of marginalised people affected by leprosy and disability? If so, we want to hear from you!

This is an exciting opportunity for those with a passion for social justice and global health. You will be joining a skilled and diverse team, with a culture of growing and learning together, in addition to award winning levels of staff engagement.

Reporting to the Finance Manager, you will have at least two years' financial management and budgeting experience, ideally within an INGO setting. An ability to undertake multi-currency reporting and develop budgets, ensure effective grant management and maintain clear communication with with donors is essential. You will also be excellent at prioritising and coordinating across multiple tasks and projects simultaneously.

There will be opportunity to develop your cross-cultural communication skills. Working with other members of the team you will build financial capacity overseas by providing virtual and eventually face-to-face support to TLM’s partners across Asia and Africa. As such you will be willing to undertake approximately six overseas trips per annum (COVID permitting).

The Leprosy Mission England and Wales (TLMEW) is a leading international Christian development organisation with over 140 years’ experience and is part of the TLM worldwide family. TLMEW serves the poorest of the poor in 10 countries across Africa and Asia, raising funds and developing partner capacity to provide life-changing healthcare, training and job opportunities for people who have been excluded and rejected.

TLMEW has a zero tolerance approach to any harm to, or exploitation of, our beneficiaries, staff and communities we come into contact with. Recruitment to roles within TLMEW includes, in particular, criminal record checks and the collection of relevant references. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from joining us as an employee; this will depend on the circumstances of any offences. Safeguarding is our top priority in everything we do.

TLMEW is an explicitly Christian charity; empathy with the Christian ethos of the organisation is essential.

We are committed to diversity and welcome applications from appropriately qualified people from all sections of the community who have permission to work in the UK.
