Hope and Homes for Children is looking for a Grants Finance Manager to join us and make families, never orphanages the new narrative. As the world recovers from the impact of Covid, there is increased risk of families experiencing the poverty, lack of support and desperation that drives children into orphanages. There is vital work to be done in ensuring this does not happen. This is an exciting time to join our team. Our profile is rising in line with our ambition and in support of this we have recently launched a new organisational strategy and refreshed our brand to ensure the voice of children is heard, globally.
About the role:
An expansion in our portfolio and pipeline of restricted funds has led to the creation of this opportunity. Reporting to the COO, you will be responsible for technical support and oversight of all major financial aspects of our grants and other restricted funds. You will support our fundraising team, country teams and partners with the financial aspects of proposal development and project implementation, monitoring, and reporting. You will support our forecasting processes and enhance our management information and control environment.
A qualified or part-qualified accountant or with a strong depth of relevant experience, you will be highly analytical and have excellent communication skills to present complex information in a relevant and clear way. You will be a team player who can deliver under tight deadlines, and you will have a passion for supporting our country finance teams and partners to enhance their own capabilities to manage the financial aspects of grants.
In return, we’ll provide you with the chance to have a real impact in a collaborative and ambitious organisation who are proud of what we do and the difference we make and will provide the opportunities and guidance to help you to develop and grow.
About Hope and Homes for Children:
We believe children belong in families, never orphanages. Because orphanages harm children. The majority of those who experience life inside an institution suffer violence, abuse, and neglect. Denied the chance to grow up in a family, they’re more likely to become homeless later in life, to have run-ins with the law, and to experience mental and physical health issues.
The shocking truth is that these are almost always children who have, or could have, a family to look after them. To love them. But every day, a broken system puts pressure on parents to give up their children. They'll be safe from war, can escape poverty, will get an education. False promises. No child should have to trade their family for their future.
Today, over 5.4 million children are trapped within institutions. It’s not right and it must stop. Children deserve so much better. Always.
Since 1994, Hope and Homes for Children has been working to stop the institutionalisation of children. We’re 250 people, in ten countries, inspiring organisations, including the UN, EU and governments around the world, to close the doors of orphanages forever. Instead, we fight for every child to feel the love and belonging of a safe family home.
