Founded in 1903, Fauna & Flora International (FFI) is the world’s longest established international conservation organisation. Our vision is to create a sustainable future for the planet where biodiversity is conserved by the people living closest to it. We aim to do this through the conservation of threatened species and ecosystems worldwide, choosing solutions that are sustainable, based on sound science and take account of human needs. We have become a trusted entity in the world of conservation. Today FFI is active in over 40 countries.
FFI’s Finance Business Partners enable and champion best practice financial management across the organisation and build strong integration between finance and conservation teams. This is an exciting opportunity to strengthen FFI’s ability to manage complex statutory grants.
You will work closely with the UK and overseas-based Finance and Programme teams to ensure the efficient and effective management of statutory funding, contributing to the delivery of FFI’s mission and strategy. This role will also take the lead on the annual single entity audit for foreign recipients of US federal funding.
You will have experience of working with statutory funding from donors such as USAID, EU and DfID, and will have a solid understanding of the terms and conditions attached. You will have experience developing resources and training to help non-finance managers comply with the requirements of their statutory donors. You will also have experience of working with local implementing partner organisations, helping with due diligence reviews and organisational assessments. You will have solid project financial management experience, including reporting, audits, budgeting and forecasting, and have excellent analytical and problem-solving skills. Your strong communication, interpersonal skills and customer focus will enable you to build effective working relationships and your proven experience of working closely with non-finance managers will enable you to provide them with essential financial support to ensure successful project delivery.
You will be a good team player and enjoy working in a busy environment, with the ability to balance competing demands. With a proactive approach to your work, you will seek to add value and have opportunity to contribute your skills and expertise to FFI’s growth and development.
In return, the role offers the opportunity to work within an international, impactful and ground- breaking organisation, at the forefront of global conservation. In addition, FFI offers a generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance and life insurance.
Our offices are located in The David Attenborough Building in central Cambridge, just a few minutes’ walk from glorious historic buildings and museums, the picturesque River Cam, the central market and shopping centre, and a host of cafés and restaurants.
