EDVOS is seeking an experienced finance executive to work with the CEO and Executive Team to deliver the organisation’s new Strategic Plan for 2021-2024.
Reporting to the CEO, this role is responsible for setting the financial policy and direction that will support the organisation’s strategy, and builds on work undertaken over the last twelve months to enhance strategic financial management.
EDVOS is a leading specialist family violence service in Victoria. Our work is focused across seven Local Government Areas including Boroondara, Manningham, Whitehorse, Monash, Knox, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges. Some of our training, education and primary prevention programs are national.
We provide an integrated range of support and services to empower women and children who have experienced and are responding to family violence. We focus on ensuring the safety of women and children, and the accountability of perpetrators. We provide support, information, case management, risk assessment, safety planning, community education, programs for pet safety and a strong network of referral pathways to other services.
EDVOS is predominantly funded to work with women and children. It is recognised that being female is the biggest risk factor for experiencing family violence. EDVOS acknowledges that family violence can take many forms such as intimate partner violence, child abuse, elder abuse, carer abuse, parental abuse and sibling abuse. Our specialist family violence response services are mostly directed towards women, including women from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) communities, children, pets and other animals, who are responding to any form of family violence.
EDVOS is committed to assisting all people, regardless of ethnicity, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age and ability within our community and can also provide access to other family violence services that are most suitable to the individual’s unique needs and goals.
The CFO is responsible for ensuring effective financial management and control of EDVOS’ resources in line with strategic priorities, funding requirements, statutory responsibilities and sector best practice.
The CFO is an integral member of the Executive Team leading the organisation in a period of external reform and organisational growth. The role will be responsible for managing growth, financial risk and compliance across the organisation as well as providing information and analysis to support strategic decision making at all levels of the organisation including the Board, Executive and management.
The CFO will oversee the finance, payroll, procurement, contract management and brokerage administration functions that enable core program and service delivery.
You have excellent technical skills coupled with the ability to influence and work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders to achieve organisational goals.
