The opportunity

We are currently recruiting for a Treasury Analyst to join us in our central London office. This is a great opportunity for a motivated and results orientated candidate to join a fast paced and dynamic organisation that is just at the start of its new strategy to reach the most marginalised and deprived children across the world.

You will work closely with the Head of Treasury Advisory Services to support the development of SCI’s treasury advisory function, to ensure the Save the Children movement systematically monitors and manages its treasury risks.

As the Treasury Analyst you will support the function to:

  • Develop processes to monitor and manage key treasury risks across Save the Children, with a primary focus on liquidity and currency risks.
  • Implement procedures to ensure that key treasury risks are identified, and appropriate mitigation strategies are proposed, before significant new awards are finalised and donor contracts signed.
  • Design and implement a framework to manage movement-wide cash flow forecasts, to enable monitoring and analysis of aggregate programmatic cash demand, especially budgets versus actuals (“BVAs”) and cash versus booked spend, and with a particular focus on breakdown by currency.
  • Monitor and analyse working capital across Save the Children, including: Save the Children member receivables at SCI, donor receivables at members, cash balances, creditor exposures, etc. and support members in the efficient recovery of institutional debt.
  • Define KPI’s for treasury risks, such as inter-member funding positions, institutional debt (across the whole organisation), cash holdings and currency risk.
  • Assist members and SCI regional/country offices in cash forecasting and cash planning.
  • Assist members and SCI regional/country offices in cash programming infrastructure and services.
  • Facilitate FX and cash management workshops for finance and programme staff, at SCI and at members.

For this position you will need;

  • Significant treasury or financial experience, ideally gained within a complex multinational organisation.
  • Proven ability in analysing and translating complex data into solutions, taking into account differing stakeholder perspectives.
  • To be numerically literate, adept at working with, manipulating and drawing conclusions from high volumes of data.
  • Strong Excel and IT skills.
  • Ability to operate within a fast changing environment: adaptable, flexible and supportive approach.
  • Commitment to Save the Children values.

On a personal level you will have an energetic and flexible approach, cultural awareness and excellent interpersonal skills.

We offer a competitive salary within the context of the sector. Our benefits package includes the opportunity to join a competitive pension scheme, life assurance, and 30 days annual leave.

The organisation

We employ approximately 17,000 people across the globe and work on the ground in over 60 countries to help children affected by crises, or those that need better healthcare, education and child protection. We also campaign and advocate at the highest levels to realise the right of children and to ensure their voices are heard.

We are working towards three breakthroughs in how the world treats children by 2030:

  • No child dies from preventable causes before their 5th birthday

  • Violence against children is no longer tolerated
