Job Title Vice President Finance

Reports to President

FLSA Status Exempt Position

Alliance for Justice and AFJ Action (collectively, “AFJ”) seek a strategic, mission-oriented, and experienced leader to serve as Vice President of Finance (VPF). Reporting to the President, the VPF is a member of the 6-person leadership team, including the President, Vice President of Operations, Vice President of Strategy, Vice President of Communications, and Vice President of Institutional Advancement.

Committed to advancing social justice, the new VPF joins AFJ at a moment of ambitious organizational transformation. In recent years, the organization has accelerated a transformation of its work and the business model to support it. The ideal VPF candidate will have the confidence, experience, management acumen, and people-skills to guide AFJ through this transition.

The VPF serves as a strategic partner to the President and board committees and will be responsible for leading the Finance Department. An excellent communicator, the VPF must possess the ability to make finance accessible to lay audiences. The VPF must be resourceful, experienced with change management, and have the ability to deliver results in a deadline-driven, fast-paced, dynamic environment. The successful candidate will have outstanding analytical, organizational, and project management skills with an overall execution orientation and high attention to detail.

The VPF will supervise three staff (Director of Finance, Senior Finance Manager – Accounts Receivable and Grants Management, and Staff Accountant – Accounts Payable) and will be responsible for ensuring necessary financial insights, processes, procedures, and analyses to help make better decisions about formulating and executing strategy. The VPF is responsible for all financial operations: long-term forecasting and planning; accounting; management of reserves and cash; budgeting and fiscal functions; maintenance of systems for grants management; monthly revenue reconciliation and budget monitoring; and annual audit. The VPF will be the lead staff for two Board Committees: Finance and Investment and Audit and Risk.
