There’s never been a more important time to join the fight for our world. With incredible species disappearing at an alarming rate, we are the first generation to know we are destroying the world. And we’re the last that can do anything about it. Use your accounting skills to lead and manage a team delivering first class financial support to upwards of £40m of expenditure covering 150 projects across the globe.

Join us and you will play a vital role in delivering our bold new strategy by taking responsibility for the financial and contractual management across our programmatic activity (conservation, advocacy and campaigns). You will provide high level budget management and business decision making support, helping to deliver impactful programmes. This will involve working flexibly with different internal teams and across the WWF network.

Acting as a valued business partner you will provide analysis, advice, training and support to the Programmes teams as well as ensuring that management and trustees are given quality information covering programmes financial performance. We will look to you to encourage the sharing of best practice and to streamline processes to enhance efficiencies.

Senior Finance Business Partner – Requirements

You must be a qualified Accountant (to CCAB standard) with significant experience of producing and presenting complex financial information for senior management in a similar sized organisation. Passionate about excellence in process management you will be comfortable defining process improvements and inspiring teams to perform at their best.

A confident communicator, you will have an eye for detail and well-developed analytical and influencing skills. A strategic thinker, you will also excel at developing the financial skills of others and working with people from different cultures and backgrounds.

Who are we?

WWF is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. Our mission is to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together.

Since 1970 population sizes of wildlife have decreased by 60%. We have just embarked on an exciting new strategy designed to inspire the public, governments and companies to address the drivers of this dramatic loss of nature.

We’ve seen first-hand how wildlife, the environment and human activity are all interlinked. That’s why our passion for safeguarding the natural world must be backed up by environmental action - making the drivers of wildlife loss mainstream knowledge (through our upcoming Our Planet series, airing on Netflix), tackling the global threat of climate change (through our big global campaigns like Earth Hour) and helping people to change the way they live to ease pressure on natural resources.

WWF is at the heart of global activities in all these areas. We have teams of highly skilled professionals working with governments, businesses and communities here in the UK and around the world.
