Job Purpose

The Financial Accounting Unit (FAU) performs financial accounting for World Vision UK (WVUK) including delivering financial services, designing and implementing its financial control environment and performing treasury management. The organisation relies heavily on the robust financial control environment, accuracy and timeliness of data and services the FAU provides, with costly implications if this does not occur. The Financial Controller is instrumental in leading the FAUs activities and engaging in the leadership of the wider FRCS group.

The postholder will be a fully qualified accountant with recent experience in a similar role. As an active Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate your Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

In addition to the salary offered, we offer good benefits including pension, generous holiday entitlement and free parking (MK).
