Finance Manager

Cord is looking for a Finance Manager to deliver a finance system change project which will radically improve operations across the organisation.  

This is an exciting role for Cord that contributes to the organisation’s digitalisation and localisation agendas. On completion of this project, Cord will have a fully digital operating model. As well as improving efficiency across the organisation, this project will enable the roles of finance staff globally to be re-imagined as tasks become less location dependent. This will allow the release of currently under-utilised skills and talents of Cord’s finance staff around the world, and it will strengthen the opportunity for decisions to be made closer to the communities that we serve. 

The role will work closely with the Head of Finance & Operations to introduce and roll out a cloud-based accounting system. It will involve collaboration with technical finance colleagues and programmes staff across Cord’s countries of operation in the UK, Africa, and South-East Asia. 

Alongside the system change project you will add vital capacity to the finance team providing support in the areas of programme financial management, donor compliance and partner grant management. 

Cord is single entity registered as a UK charity and receives funding mostly from institutional donors, in particular the EU and the US government. To be suitable for this role you will have good understanding of the UK SORP, donor compliance and restricted fund management, as well as of multi-currency working.  

To be successful in this role you will need to be able to work collaboratively with colleagues from across Cord’s global team having advanced interpersonal skills, you will also need self-drive to keep the change project on track amid a busy ongoing operation. 

Salary: circa £35,000

Location: based in the UK, remote homeworking with regular meet-ups in Coventry
