The Leprosy Mission (TLM) is a leading international Christian charity, active in over 40 countries, working towards the vision of Leprosy Defeated and Lives Transformed.

Operating as an International Federation (Global Fellowship) of 29 Member countries, the International Office provides leadership and facilitation to enable the Global Fellowship to achieve this vision. Join us in this new role and help us defeat leprosy, forever.

Working within a small team the Financial Accountant will assist the Head of Finance with the delivery of an effective financial management service, including budgets, reporting and compliance enabling the achievement of strategic and country level objectives. There is an emphasis on building financial capacity overseas, as well as providing hands-on finance support to TLM’s work in developing countries in both the Asian and African regions. You will have proven professional and facilitation skills, having worked cross-culturally, and be willing to undertake overseas trips totalling approximately 30 days per annum.

TLM is an explicitly Christian organisation. As this vacancy will take an integral part in shaping organisational culture, post holders must be willing to engage with, support and contribute to the Christian ethos and values of the charity, and to design and implement finance policies consistent with our ethos and values. It is therefore an occupational requirement that the post holder is a practising Christian committed to the objectives and values of The Leprosy Mission and is able to work in an interdenominational environment.
