The Organisation


Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.


We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it’s girls who are most affected.


Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.


We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.


We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 80 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.


The Opportunity

In this role you will be responsible for the group level financial accounting and reporting for PIan International, Inc. and our National Organisations, including the complex consolidation of the results and balance sheets. As ‘Subject Matter Expert’ of our consolidation and reporting system, you will also be responsible for ensuring compliance with International Financial Reporting Standards for Plan Worldwide and USGAAP for Plan International. Inc. and that statutory and non-statutory audit requirements are met.


The Individual


We are seeking a finance professional with proven technical accounting ability and knowledge of corporate accounting, under both IFRS and US GAAP. To be successful in this role you will need consolidation systems experience, preferably utilising SAP BPC and experience of group reporting, working with multiple currencies.
