Job Description

We are looking for a new Executive Director of Finance and Strategic Planning to significantly contribute to the strategic development of WaterAid UK, ensuring the organisation is effective in its mission and highly respected as sustainable and financially agile. You will set the strategic vision for WaterAid UK's finance function which spans across 20 countries, and ensure finance leaders and professionals are future-focused and systems, processes, and people are fit-for-purpose and designed to enable a higher restricted income portfolio and efficient financial management and reporting.

An inspiring and visionary leader, you will bring extensive strategic experience in leading and building high-performing finance and operational teams in an international organisation. You will have a track record of successful management and development of an organisation's financial strategy and business model, working with a mix of flexible and non-flexible funding, whilst overseeing risk and assurance.
