This is a rare opportunity to work on some of the most important issues of our generation.
Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws and policies to help protect children than anyone else. We get things done. And we’re not going to stop until the world is a safe place for all our children.
We are recruiting two Finance Assistants to provide support to the Finance Team, to ensure the complete and accurate recording of income and expenditure and cash, and regular liaison with all departments within Unicef UK to provide information and deal with financial queries.
You will have specific responsibility for ensuring the payment of supplier invoices, regular reconciliation of payments to supplier statements, the daily importing of income data into the accounting system, distributing donations information to the relevant departments within Unicef UK, and bank reconciliations.
Unicef UK offers regular training opportunities to staff members, and as part of the placement, students are encouraged to get experience of other functions within the organisation through work shadowing and volunteering at fundraising events.
To succeed in this role, you will be able to analyse information to make logical and sound judgements. We are looking for excellent communication skills along with the ability to manage conflicting priorities to ensure that objectives are achieved and deadlines met
