Director of Finance
Saferworld is an independent international organisation working to prevent violent conflict and build safer lives. We work with local people affected by conflict to improve their safety and sense of security. We do this by supporting effective policies and practices through advocacy, research and policy development, and through supporting the actions of others.
The organisation has estimated income in 2016-17 of £15 million and is funded by some 40 donor contracts from governments, the EC and other bodies. Our head office is in London and we have offices in several African countries, Central Asia, Yemen and South Asia, and as well as working through partners in other locations.
The Director of Finance is a member of Saferworld’s leadership team and is jointly responsible with the Executive Director, Director of International Programmes, Director of Policy, Advocacy & Communications, and Director of Operations and HR for the overall strategic planning and development of Saferworld.
The successful candidate will be a qualified accountant with a solid track record in financial management at a strategic senior level – including budgeting, procurement, compliance and proactive risk management and will lead on the generation of relevant data, analysis, systems and processes that will enable us perform at the highest levels in complex and changing settings.
