Full time with flexibility
Homebased in the UK
Family for Every Child is global alliance of local civil society organisations working together to improve the lives of vulnerable children around the world.
We influence national, regional and global decision-makers to implement positive change to child protection policies and services, with a specific focus on children being cared for in a safe family environment.
We use our common voices, based on our own diverse contexts and experiences, to reach a common goal.
Family for Every Child is at a critical stage in its development and during 2020, we aim to develop our next strategy and financial plan for the four year period from 2021. As part of this process we are completing an external evaluation with Members of the Alliance and updating our Theory of Change and thematic priorities. We are also completing a deep dive on our fundraising performance and strategy to inform the new financial plan.
The Interim Strategic Finance Director, working closely with colleagues as part of the Leadership Team, will have a vital part to play in analysing our current situation and considering where our focus needs to be, specifically focusing on challenging and helping to shape our fundraising strategy, developing our financial plan, contributing to the evaluation and strategic review, and embedding strong governance across our three entities.
This is an exciting and challenging time to join Family and to play a key role in shaping the Alliances future. We are looking for someone who brings a solid background in interpreting the financial health of an organisation, using this to inform strategic direction, bringing in new perspectives and open to exploring alternative options.
With demonstrable experience managing performing teams, developing and managing budgets, and reporting at a Board level, we are seeking someone who has a high tolerance for risk and is comfortable with ambiguity, someone who can be proactive but not directive, and able to work with a high degree of autonomy while keeping others informed and engaged.
