Job Details

Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights (UAF) – a rapid response grantmaking organization – supports courageous women and transgender human rights defenders around the world. UAF’s model protects and advances the civil, political, and social rights of women and LGBTI people, and invests in the resilience of social justice movements, including environmental, feminist, anti-corruption, land rights, youth, and LGBTI movements. Founded in 1997, UAF has grown from a single organization into a network of four independent Sister Funds that collectively support frontline women’s rights activists around the world. UAF’s work within this network centers on support for activists and social movements in Central Asia, the Middle East, Western and Eastern Europe, the South Caucuses, Turkey, Russia, Canada, and the United States.

At a critical moment in time for the world, UAF is seeking a Director of Finance and Operations to manage the finance, accounting, operations, and human resources responsibilities for the organization. While leading a small team, the Director will play a key role in managing and directing the finance and accounting operations of a dynamic and growing international non-profit organization, including government funding reporting and international audits; non-profit law and accounting principles; presenting financial data and its implications clearly and succinctly to management, board, funders, and staff; training, managing and supervising staff and consultants; planning, forecasting and budgeting, including for multi-organization consortia; human resources best practices and employment law in the U.S.; institutional records management and remote operations management; and IT systems management with a high degree of digital security.

Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director of Finance and Operations will supervise UAF’s Operations, Human Resources, and Finance/Accounting staff. Additionally, the Director will work closely with UAF’s financial management consultant. Candidates for this role will bring strong leadership and management abilities as well as technical expertise, practical knowledge, strategic thinking, and problem-solving skills in the areas of finance, human resources, organizational development, IT and systems development, and administration functions.
