Job Details:

This is an exciting period of growth for PEAS as we have embarked on our new global strategy, Growing PEAS Schools. Supporting All Schools 2022-2026

Yes, it is ambitious. Yes, it is exciting. Yes, it will be challenging.
But if ever there was a time for action, the time is now. We know that inequitable access, poor quality and insufficient resources continue to prevent millions of children from enjoying an education that unlocks their full potential. This has only been exacerbated by the COVID pandemic, bringing even more barriers for the children and families struggling the most.

The Opportunity
As Global Senior Finance Manager (GSFM), you will coordinate all PEAS’ global financial processes ensuring strong financial management, championing value for money and sustainability across the organisation.
To keep pace with over 10 years of fast growth and in readiness for a new and equally ambitious strategic period, PEAS has developed a strong foundation of financial management across all countries of operations.
But, there is a lot more we want to achieve to truly maximise value for money, and this role will sit within an ambitious global team to lead the regular review and improvement of financial planning, budgeting, and monitoring processes.

The Global Senior Finance Manager has been designed to deliver on the following outcomes
• Strategic finances – PEAS’ Senior Management Team, Board & Finance Committee have access to accurate, reliable and timely organisational financial data and insights to drive strategic decision making.
• Consolidated audit- Coordinate group external auditors and PEAS’ finance teams to successfully deliver globally consolidated annual audited accounts within 5 months of year-end.
• Management accounts- Timely and accurate production of monthly consolidated global management accounts, quarterly Finance, Audit & Risk Committee meeting papers, and periodic global budget reforecasts.
• Grant financial management – Oversee high quality and timely budget preparation and financial reporting for a portfolio of PEAS’ high priority grants (with support from Global Grants Officer and wider Grants Management capacity)
• Technical assistance – All PEAS Country Office finance teams receive finance technical assistance to support consistency of financial management and strong strategic finance practices across the organisation.
• PEAS UK finance processes – Oversee UK Finance & Admin Assistant and/or finance outsourcing provider to ensure smooth delivery of PEAS UK and global cash management finance processes

To be successful in this role you will need to have at least 3-5 years’ experience in a senior level financial management role with a proven track record of budgeting, reporting, cashflow management, and audit and driven by delivering value for money and sustainability in a low-resourced setting.
At PEAS, our leaders are to be ego-less, prepared to be both a great leader and a great do-er. This role will be challenging, so you must be resilient and adaptable. When something doesn’t improve or change immediately, you must remain energised, find ways to learn from mistakes, ensuring that we find a way forward in the end. For the right individual, this challenge will be exciting as you bring onboard your experience and skills to make our ambitious strategy a reality.
We would like this role to be based in either of our countries of operations – Uganda or Zambia and therefore will prioritise Zambian and Ugandan nationals or those with the existing right to work in those countries and who meet the criteria. However, we are open to candidates based in other parts of Africa.
