CARE International operates in more than 104 countries around the world. We run poverty-fighting programmes and deliver life-saving aid in 90 developing countries. This work is supported by global policy and advocacy work, fundraising, and programme management provided by CARE members in countries like the USA and the UK.

CARE’s Vision 2030 is the Confederation’s 10-year strategy. Gender justice is central to our work and we recognise that poverty cannot be eradicated and social justice achieved while gender inequality persists. Discrimination against women has negative implications for global security and development, economic performance, food security, health, climate adaptation and the environment, governance, and stability. CARE’s 2030 goal is that 50 million people of all genders experience greater gender equality (particularly eliminating Gender Based Violence, and increasing women and girls’ voice, leadership, and education)

The Financial Controller will work closely with the Finance Director in the delivery of the organisation’s financial objectives and is expected to contribute to the financial culture, strategy and development of the organisation.

  • Strong financial accounting skills with a demonstrable understanding of UK GAAP
  • Ability to understand the wider picture and to advise and influence colleagues outside of direct line management
