We are seeking a Director of Finance & Accounting who is excited about the mission of InterVarsity and committed to partnering with our leadership teams to move the ministry into its next chapter. We require someone who:

  • Can guide the financial strategy and planning of the ministry by analyzing its performance and risks;

  • Can establish, build and maintain strong internal and external relationships and help the shared leadership team rework and build the systems and processes required to keep the ministry financially healthy, equipped and thriving.

If you answered a resounding yes to the questions posed above, can meet the objectives we’re seeking to fulfil and are excited about our mission and purpose, we definitely want to hear from you!
