Job Title: Officer, Finance

Job Description
We are seeking a Finance Officer who will work closely with the Financial Director to refine how Bridge International Academies approaches financial budgeting, projections, and forecasting.  The Finance Officer will also help senior executives identify key performance indicators in the business, highlight how the Company can improve operational execution across all divisions, and prepare materials for the Board of Directors highlighting the Company’s strategic and financial direction.

What You Will Do:
    Prepare and maintain financial analyses that forecast/project Bridge International Academies’ operational and financial performance
    Work with department heads and senior executives to refine budgeting across the Company
    Continuously work with department heads to identify and evaluate key performance indicators
    Work with the Finance Department to ensure that historical/actual performance is correctly captured and in-sync with the Finance Associate’s work
    Assist senior executives with preparing materials for the Board of Directors and investors
    Think strategically and proactively about Bridge International Academies’ financial direction

What You Should Have:
    At least two years of post-undergraduate, full time work experience in investment banking or corporate finance; should be used to highly rigorous, complex financial analysis
    Undergraduate degree from a top university with exemplary academic achievements; ideally in economics, business, accounting, and/or finance
    Very experienced working with Microsoft Excel and Powerpoint
    Experience working closely with a company to build financial and operating models at a deep level, particularly on a multi-country level

    Extraordinary attention to detail and highly driven, ambitious attitude towards work
    Strategic financial thinker with an eye for identifying metrics that matter for a business

You’re also
    A detailed doer – You have a track record of getting things done. You’re organized and responsive. You take ownership of every idea you touch and execute it to a fine level of detail, setting targets, engaging others, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. You can multi-task dozens of such projects at once and never lose sight of the details. Likely, you have some experience in a startup or social enterprise.
    A creative problem-solver – Growing any enterprise from scratch comes with massive and constant challenges. On top of that, Bridge works in often challenging, low-resource communities and runs on fees averaging just $6 a month per pupil. You need to be flexible and ready to get everything done effectively, quickly, and affordably with the materials at hand. Every dollar you spend is a dollar our customers, who live on less than $2 a day, will have to pay for.
    A customer advocate – Our customers – these families living on less than $2 a day per person – never leave your mind. You know them, get them, have shared a meal with them (or would be happy to in the future). Every decision you make considers their customer benefit, experience, and value.
    A life-long learner – You believe you can always do better. You welcome constructive criticism and provide it freely to others. You know you only get better tomorrow when others point out where you’ve missed things or failed today.
