Chief Financial Officer
A fantastic opportunity to join the award-winning teams delivering Soccer Aid 2019
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.
As Chief Financial Officer, you will bring commercial acumen, leadership and direction for the Finance directorate, to challenge the status quo with the aim of delivering sustainable growth and maximising outcomes for children.
You will lead on the planning, implementing, managing, reporting and controlling of all financially-related activities, ensuring efficiency and effectiveness of the cross-organisation business services provided by the Finance team.
To succeed in this role, you will be a qualified Accountant with significant senior leadership experience in a large or complex organisation and exceptional strategic and operational financial expertise and delivery.
You will have a demonstrable track record of innovation and be able to instill a culture of innovation. We are looking for practiced skill and experience in strategic KPI setting and financial performance management, as well as experience of working with Boards and non-executive colleagues, such as risk management and/or audit committees.
This role offers a genuine opportunity to make a difference to the lives of millions of children around the world.
