About you

You're an experienced Finance professional with a track record of strong finance leadership for a dynamic and fast-moving organisation. You understand the connection between finances and the success of the organisation and work collaboratively with all stakeholders. You have a thorough understanding of Accounting Standards and you look for opportunities to provide financial analysis and insight and to streamline processes. You enjoy providing finance support to a varied and geographically dispersed team.

Ours is a fast-paced work environment that will challenge you to think on your feet, solve problems and juggle competing demands.

The ideal candidate will have at least seven years' experience in a senior finance role and will be excited at the prospect of working for a dynamic organisation with a mission to solve the climate crisis.

Working from our Sydney office, you'll report to the Operations Director, with strong relationships with the Executive Director and the Board.
