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.

Working closely with local partners, the Asia-Pacific Programme currently includes a broad range of species and landscape targeted conservation initiatives in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar, and has country programme offices in Phnom Penh, Nanning, Jakarta, Hanoi and Yangon. Around 70 projects are being implemented in the region by a team of approximately 200 staff, consultants, volunteers and partner organisations with an annual regional budget of approximately USD 10 million.

FFI is seeking a Programme Finance Officer to support the Finance Business Partner and Asia Pacific Programme staff in maintaining effective financial management of our projects and operations and in ensuring smooth financial operations on a day-to-day basis. 

You will have substantial experience in a similar role and in using accounting and financial reporting software. Ideally, you will be AAT qualified, CCAB part-qualified or equivalent, although this is not essential. You will be a member of FFI’s UK-based Finance Team, while working closely with Asia Pacific staff throughout the region. 

Your strong budgeting and financial analysis skills will enable you to support the Finance Business Partner in solving finance problems and ensuring up to date and accurate financial reports. You will have proven experience communicating financial information to non-finance staff, and your excellent interpersonal skills will enable you to build strong organisational relationships.  An understanding of compliance issues is essential and an understanding of statutory funding would be an advantage. 

You will enjoy working in a dynamic and fast-paced environment, where the ability to respond swiftly to changing organisational and team needs is paramount.  In return, we offer the opportunity to work for a ground-breaking organisation at the forefront of global conservation, with generous pension contribution, attractive annual leave allowance, life insurance and salary exchange schemes, including Childcare Vouchers and Cycle to Work Scheme.
