About Us

The Leprosy Mission (TLM) is a leading international Christian charity, active in over 40 countries, working towards the vision of Leprosy Defeated and Lives Transformed. Operating as an International Federation (Global Fellowship) of 27 member countries, the International Office provides leadership and facilitation to enable the Global Fellowship to achieve this vision. 

Leprosy is a scourge and an injustice in our world and we are fighting to do something about it. Now, we are looking for a Finance Officer to join our dedicated team in Brentford. 

The Rewards
  • £31,800
  • 10% contribution to your pension
  • Health cash back plan
  • Cycle to work scheme

  • Play a key behind-the-scenes role in our charity

Built on values of compassion, justice, integrity, inclusion and humility, we’re working towards a happier, healthier world where people aren’t stigmatised because of their illness. 

Our main focus is on leprosy, but our work often includes supporting those with other disabilities, neglected tropical diseases, marginalised people in society and those living in extreme poverty.

The smooth running of our organisation is key to ensuring that we can continue our lifesaving work. In this varied role, you will have the chance to directly contribute to the day-to-day finances of our charity.

The Role

As a Finance Officer, you’ll provide a high level of support to the Head of Finance and Finance Team.

Specifically, you will:

  • Process invoices in the accounting system
  • Make payments to suppliers in the UK and overseas
  • Help to resolve queries with suppliers and service providers 
  • Produce monthly accounts and support schedules 
  • Occasionally visit other sites to help strengthen the financial operations of both the charity and any partner organisations 

The Leprosy Mission International is an explicitly Christian organisation and plays a key role in regular prayer and devotion, and part of your role will support the work of the Mission through Christian prayer, Christian sessions, and fellowship. There is, therefore, an occupational requirement for the Finance Officer to be a practising Christian.

About You

To join us as a Finance Officer, you’ll need:

  • At a minimum, three years’ experience in a similar role
  • Intermediate MS Office skills, including Excel and Word, as well as SUN or a similar accounting package
  • At a minimum, an NVQ Level 4 qualification or Diploma in Accounting 
  • Strong communication skills 
  • A great eye for detail
We are eager to hear from you if you’ve worked as an Accounts Officer, Accounts Clerk, Finance Clerk, Accounts Administrator, Finance Administrator, Accounts Assistant or Finance Assistant. You can read more about this role in the job description.
