Fluency in English (spoken and written) is required for the position, and applicants must be a Certified Public Accountant.

Reporting to the Executive Director, the Head of Finance is responsible for the efficient and effective management of WINS’ accounting systems and financial controls.

The position is supported by a Financial Project Controller.

Our funding comes from governments, foundations and corporate donations and consists of an annual operating budge of  approximately 3 million euros. (Note: The finance systems use FileMaker, so the applicant must already be proficient in this software when taking up the position.)
