Director of Finance & Operations
Youth Business International is seeking a motivated Director of Finance and Operations to join the Senior Management Team. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a fast–growing, sector-leading international NGO supporting young people around the world to start and/or grow their own business.
Youth Business International (YBI) is a global network of 55 expert organisations in 52 countries supporting under-served young people to turn their ideas into successful businesses, creating jobs and strengthening communities.
Since 2014, we have supported 95,102 young people to start or grow a business by delivering a range of entrepreneurship support services, from training and mentoring to access to finance and other business development services.
The Chief Executive, SMT and Trustees have strong ambitions for YBI. They recognise the importance of a strong finance and operations leader to support the charity to deliver its strategy, providing both strategic direction and direct operational support.
Working alongside the CEO, the Finance and Operations Director will be a strong cross organisational leader, line manager and accountant. As the organisation looks to diversify its sources of income, the Director should also be commercially aware, advising on the best path of growth for the organisation during a time of change.
We are looking for an individual who can operate comfortably at all levels, embedding finance at the heart of all decision making and acting as a true business partner globally. Fully-qualified, you will have the ability to provide sound commercial advice to the SMT, whilst being hands-on when necessary.
Experience of operating in an international charitable environment is desirable, however a diverse industry background and knowledge of developing commercial revenue streams is also highly advantageous.
The successful candidate will have the drive, ambition and vision to help YBI deliver its strategic goals.
For more information, please apply before the closing date of Friday 28th September 2018
