The Company

My client is an established non-profit organisation with one mission - to increase the flow of funds into the charitable sector by creating efficiencies where they can. Their company was set up on the premise that so many individuals, collectives and foundations wanted to donate to organisations around the world but didn't have the knowledge of how to. They offer donators the support they need when giving to charities - their successful relationship managers handle all the elements of giving from start to finish to ensure a streamlined process. They are experts in the non-profit field and work with other charities globally so that donations can be diligently given all over the world.
The success of their company is down to two things - the innovation behind their business and the intelligence and drive of their employees. Their growth trajectory shows they're onto something big and they're looking for exceptional people to join their Finance team in their London HQ.
