Innovative Human Rights NGO Seeks
Asylum Access is a leading global refugee human rights organization.
Headquartered in Oakland, California with substantial operations in three countries plus partnerships in additional countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, Asylum Access works to make human rights a reality for refugees.
Our unique combination of policy advocacy and legal empowerment creates conditions in which refugees can live safely, move freely and work legally.
By supporting refugees to affirm their rights, we put power and agency back into their hands.
Our work transforms the traditional approach of endless humanitarian handouts to a sustainable solution that restores refugees’ freedom, dignity and autonomy, and empowers them to make choices about their own lives.
Asylum Access believes all refugees deserve a fair chance at a new life.
All over the world, we challenge barriers that keep refugees from living safely, moving freely, working and attendingschool — because when refugees can rebuild their lives, communities thrive.
The Finance Department at Asylum Access is in charge of planning, organizing, controlling, and monitoring financial resources to achieve organizational goals.
It also ensures the financial integrity of the organization and produces high-quality financial assessments to inform organizational strategy.
In all of these areas and in our day-to-day work, we embed Asylum Access’s values of being results-oriented, resourceful team members who value our people and our partners.
These values shape our financial governance, structure, systems and processes to ensure the organization is equipped to achieve impact on personal, community and systemic levels.
The Interim Chief Financial Officer (ICFO) will aid the organization to grow its systems related to finance, and in particular, will assist the Global Finance Director in their professional growth.
The ICFO will design, in partnership with the Global Finance Director, the infrastructure, systems, and process to prepare Asylum Access for substantial growth over the coming 5 to 10 years,
and will bear primary duty to implement and roll out new systems. As a member of the Global Leadership Team (GLT), the ICFO will be involved in initiatives targeted to provide a clear financial strategy and systems for sustainable and conscientious growth.
The organization seeks a strategic ICFO with a track record of organizing a growing organization to meet future expansion.
