As an organisation that works with disability activists in Africa and Asia we are clear that lived experience of disability is hugely important to our mission. Priority for this role will be given to disabled people. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations throughout recruitment and employment. 


Job Purpose.

This is an exciting opportunity to join ADD at a time of change and transformation to become a participatory grant-maker and an organisation committed to ensuring that disabled people from the regions where we work are central to our leadership and decision-making processes.

This new role will lead our newly centralised and geographically distributed finance team in serving the changing financial management needs of ADD International and its partners.   

You will take over from the current interim Head of Finance in leading initiatives to simplify internal financial procedures and implement new financial accounting systems and processes that will support the wider transformation and reduce workloads. You will also play a pivotal role in ensuring ADD meets its donor reporting requirements within its old model of restricted funding and the emerging model that will support participatory grant-making.

You will take overall responsibility for the organisational-level budget, management reports and audits and regularly attend Trustee & Senior Leadership Team meetings to brief them on financial matters.

About you.

You will have a commitment to shifting and sharing power in international development and understand and be able to think through the implications of that for financial management across the organisation. You will be open to trying new ways of working in finance and have a highly collaborative and developmental approach to working with others internally and externally.  You will also be a qualified accounting professional with strong financial budgeting, reporting and management skills and a strong knowledge of the financial obligations of UK charities.

You will have the strong leadership skills needed to shape a newly formed finance team, and a strong customer service focus and commitment to continuous improvement.
