Director of Finance and Administration
Open until filled
The Director of Finance and Administration (DFA) provides leadership, direction, and day-to-day management of key functions including: finance, accounting, human resources, facilities, technology and general business operations; and assumes responsibility for the organization in the absence of the Executive Director. As a member of the senior management team, and working closely with the Executive Director, the DFA formulates and implements policies, practices and plans to meet the organization’s short- and long-term objectives. Our ideal candidate is knowledgeable about federal grants (which comprise most of our budget), experienced in non-profit management, has strong analytic and interpersonal skills, and applies their financial and operations expertise to build and maintain efficient and effective systems to support organizational development and growth. There are two options for this position. Ideally, a candidate will take on the full range of financial, HR and operations functions described, in a full time capacity. However, the financial responsibilities of the position are a top priority for the organization, so a 60% FTE position, focused on finance, is an option as well. This position is based in our Oakland office.
