Mercy Corps European Headquarters
£25,000 - £30,000
Salary circa £25-30k, depending on experience
Closing date: 2 August 2017
Job Type: Paid
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
We are looking for an ambitious International Finance Officer to join the team at our European headquarters

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within. Now, and for the future.

Mercy Corps Europe (MCE) has grown rapidly both in terms of the volume of activity and its complexity and we are now looking for an ambitious IFO to join our team. All the financial stages of our grant management, from proposal development and initial budgeting to compliance and final reporting, are managed by our IFOs and wider International Finance team. IFOs typically have a geographical portfolio containing projects from a variety of European donors with differing durations, compliance requirements and reporting needs.

This is an opportunity to be involved in finance work that is fast-paced and varied, and to be part of a diverse, dedicated team of people who are genuinely motivated by making a difference. You will be someone with a positive, can-do approach, who enjoys the pressure of working together as a team to tight deadlines. Strong communication skills are vital, as you will be operating in a truly international environment, partnering with colleagues in Europe, the US and in our Field teams around the world. The successful candidate should possess a Degree in Accounting or Finance, be a part-qualified accountant or qualified by experience.

The role is based at our European HQ in the centre of Edinburgh, with all of the culture, diversity and history that the city has to offer.

Closing date: Candidates will be considered on a rolling basis.

Candidates must have the ability to work in the UK at the time of appointment.


Note: We are also able to consider more experienced applicants at a Senior International Finance Officer level, however for this we would be looking for proven experience in financial grant management in the international development sector.
