Programmes Finance Officer
Are you passionate about international development and global health?
Do you want to be instrumental in seeing an end to leprosy and associated discrimination across Africa and Asia? Are you experienced in meeting the financial needs of large donors and complex programmes? Do you have the skills to facilitate the capacity development of partners in the global south in financial reporting and management? If so, we want to hear from you.
This is an exciting opportunity for a person with a passion for social justice to join our dynamic Programmes team. Reporting to the Programmes Finance Manager, you will have at least two years of financial management experience, ideally within an INGO setting, to include multi-currency accounting and reporting. In addition, you will have experience of grant management and working with donor institutions, excellent prioritisation skills and an ability to coordinate across multiple tasks and projects simultaneously.
You will be able to deliver an effective financial management service, including budgets, reporting and compliance, enabling the achievement of strategic and country level objectives. As an excellent cross-cultural communicator and mentor, you will build financial capacity overseas, providing virtual and face-to-face support to The Leprosy Mission’s partners across Asia and Africa. You will have already worked internationally, with proven professional and facilitation skills and be willing to undertake overseas travel (COVID permitting) approximately 12 weeks per annum.
The Leprosy Mission England and Wales (TLMEW) is a leading international Christian development organisation with over 140 years’ experience and is part of the Leprosy Mission 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.
