We are looking for an exceptional senior accountant to manage our subsidiary and donor compliance across a dozen countries. The role has responsibility for establishing, closing and ensuring compliance with financial and regulatory requirements of all of our subsidiaries. It is also responsible for ensuring our projects are compliant with a diverse set of donor financial requirements. You will be joining a team that takes a long-term view, so success in this role will also involve identifying business process needs and investing in delivering efficient systems to run them.
The ideal candidate will naturally glide between liaising with regulators in fragile and conflict affected countries, to deciphering complex donor financial requirements and translating them into actionable processes for project teams around the world. You will be a highly organised and autonomous individual who takes responsibility, rather than waiting for it to be given. You will have the capacity to handle expansion from a mid-sized to a large Enterprise and putting in place what is needed to handle that expansion. Your work will provide the platforms and advice that enable our technical teams to deliver social impact across the countries and regions where we work. You can live wherever you like, but will be employed by our India-based entity.
To excel in this role, you will have more than 10 years working as a professional accountant including managing subsidiary regulation and compliance. You will be accomplished in developing financial compliance procedures and implementing controls. You will be highly flexible and have experience working in jurisdictions outside your home country. You want a leadership role in an entrepreneurial organisation and you like the idea of having autonomy to get things done.
We focus on problems and timeframes that are difficult but tractable; tractable because we can see possibilities to transform them; and transformational in measurably improving people’s lives. We map our path with thematic and geographic mission statements. We walk these paths by nimbly combining rigorous learning and flexible sourcing of external funds. We measure our performance by our impact on beneficiary communities and the way in which our services change the lives of individual women, men and children.
