This is an excellent opportunity to take on an exciting role within CARE International UK's Programme & Policy Department/Programme Management Team.
The Programme Finance Specialist provides integrated contract, financial and compliance expertise to a portfolio of CARE International UK funded contracts, throughout the end-to-end programme management cycle: from pre-positioning with partners, funding proposals, monitoring and interim reporting, through to final donor reporting and project close-out.
Programme Finance Specialists are expected to be able to work independently on grants and with support on complex grants and commercial contracts. You will be expected to take your learning and development seriously and develop skills to enable you to start working more independently on complex grants and commercial contracts.
You will provide knowledge and expertise on the key CARE International UK donors, in particular FCDO, and develop tools, templates and guidance and deliver training/capacity building.
This role is also a key interface with CARE International UK Finance team, providing key project information for UK financial processes, monitoring against financial indicators and providing financial monitoring reports to the programme managers.
