Are you an ambitious Finance professional keen to transform the finance function in a humanitarian response organisation?

UK-Med is a humanitarian INGO that has been responding to disasters and health emergencies for more than 20 years. We train medical teams, both in the UK and worldwide, so they are ready to respond when epidemics, conflict and natural disasters hit. When Ebola struck West Africa in 2014, we recruited and trained UK doctors and nurses who helped local medical teams and other NGOs to bring the outbreak under control. We are core partners, providing the clinical component of the UK Emergency Medical Team (UK EMT) in line with WHO standards. Our medical teams respond to disasters around the world, and we work with local emergency teams to build their resilience to future threats. Our work has never been more vital, with disasters becoming more frequent, complex and severe. Can you help build a world prepared to help?

We are recruiting a skilled Associate Director of Finance to join our HQ team to provide excellent leadership and oversight to a transforming finance function, including team mentoring, embedding improved financial management processes and systems, and making sure that UK-Med meets financial and legal obligations.

You will bring experience of leading a team and building a finance function. You will have recognized accounting qualifications with proven practical experience of senior financial management in the charitable sector.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits along with a supportive working environment and the opportunity to make a real difference through our humanitarian work.
