Job Details

In Autumn 2022, SOS launched our Conservation Greenprint, our strategic vision to 2030. Our mission is to support forest-edge communities, local authorities, and our network of frontline partners in safeguarding the Sumatran rainforest. The goal is to ensure the future of critically endangered Sumatran and Tapanuli orangutans and contribute to the fight against the global climate crisis.

Experiencing significant growth in recent years in line with our ambitious strategy, SOS has created the Finance & Operations Manager role to address the growing need for robust financial and operational systems. This role is pivotal in supporting strategic planning, empowering informed decision-making, enhancing operational efficiency, and attracting the funding required to scale up our impactful work. This is a new role, bringing together responsibilities which are currently either outsourced or performed by different members of staff.

Over the next five years, we aim to make a significant step-change in our operations and the impact of our programmes in Sumatra.  Just as our conservation strategy supports wild orangutans to thrive in resilient forests, this new role will underpin the charity’s resilience and enable us to thrive.

Terms: Part-time: 15 hours/week (0.4 FTE)

Working pattern: Flexible

Base: Flexible – Remote, or at the SOS office in Abingdon, near Oxford.

Benefits: 25 days annual leave + public holidays (pro rata) with additional paid leave over the Christmas period, 5% pension contribution and continuous professional development.

SOS was founded in 2001 by Lucy Wisdom in order to realise her vision of a safe future for wild orangutans and their forest home.

Over two decades later, we continue to work at the cutting edge of orangutan conservation, using innovative approaches and collaborating with incredible partners to build resilience for orangutans, forests and people.
