Caribbean Finance Director

The Finance Director (FD) plays a key role in enabling workers being sent from the Caribbean to serve amongst the least reached or within the Caribbean team. The role is a complex one, involving multiple entities and currencies. The main responsibilities of the FD are supervising OM Caribbean’s accounting function, budgeting, preparation of financial statements and reports, and donations accounting. The FD is assisted by finance assistants based in the various islands or working remotely.

The OM Caribbean Field is made up of about 30 countries. Our main focus is mobilizing Caribbean believers to go as missionaries all over the world. As part of the ‘Global South’, much of our ministry is helping the church across the Caribbean understand that it has the privilege of sending missionaries and then encouraging them to sow into this ministry. The Field comprises 5 legally registered entities and reporting in both local currencies and USD is required. The main finances include recording and allocation of donations given to support missionaries and projects in any of OM’s 110+ fields of service and for operational needs. Donations are received in local bank accounts and online.
   
Required Skills & Experience:
• Experience of using accounting software and preparing financial statements.
• Good knowledge of MS Office 365, especially Excel and Sharepoint, and a willingness to learn OM’s accounting software (currently Open Petra, but moving to Xledger in 2025). Experience of using a CRM would be helpful.
• Organizational skills with good attention to detail.
• Team leadership experience.
• Ability to work independently and flexibly.
• Strong communication skills, with good written and spoken English.
• Good inter-personal skills.
