Controller

$90,000 - $100,000 yearly
  • Central Union Mission (Washington D.C.)
  • Washington D.C., DC, USA
Full time Accounting Finance Nonprofit

Job Description

THE POSITION 

The Controller will lead the overall financial functions for the Mission (80%) and also be  responsible for various compliance and regulatory requirements (20%). The Controller  will be responsible for supervising and preparing all aspects of the financial statements  including monthly close, financial statement preparation, payroll, annual audit and tax return  submission. Compliance responsibilities include regulatory filings that are to be made on  a timely basis (tax returns, state donor solicitation and financial filings) and working with  human resources to ensure that all appropriate reporting is performed. 

On a broader level, the Controller (reporting directly to the CFO) will contribute as a senior  leader in the organization and may, in time, have the opportunity to take on additional  leadership responsibilities. 

DESIRED BACKGROUND AND QUALIFICATIONS 

The preferred candidates will match these descriptors: 

  • Committed Christian and active member of a Christian Church 
  • Full agreement with the Mission’s Statement of Faith 
  • CPA with a relevant Bachelor’s degree 
  • At least 7 years progressive experience in accounting and/or finance 
  • Practiced leadership, supervisory and team-building skills 
  • Ability to work on multiple, complex projects simultaneously and see them to  completion with minimal supervision.  
  • Proven financial close experience 
  • History of working in a team environment and across disciplines 

IDEAL CANDIDATE

The new Controller is well-educated, professional, and internally motivated, but that’s only  the beginning. If this is you, you have a drive for excellence in every area of your life ... a  drive that is deeply connected to meaning and mission. “Spread the gospel, feed the hungry  and shelter the homeless” is a purpose that resonates with you 

As one who is created in the image of God, you value those around you. You recognize that  process is just as important as the outcome and that people matter. You have a desire to serve  others and to be part of an organization where authentic servant leadership is the modus  operandi, where people roll up their sleeves and do whatever is needed. 

You have a yearning to change things for the better, to take what’s good and make it great.  The idea of building a world-class organization is something you can get up for every day, and  the freedom to do it with creativity and excellence is not something you want to miss. You’re  energized by the opportunity to support expansion and the challenge of implementing new  systems. You’d rather develop tools that enable than bureaucratic policies that stifle.  

Of course, not every day is ideal. It helps to be “thick-skinned” and for resilience to be a well developed norm. You recognize this is part of being in a growing organization and you’re happy  to take on those challenges. You find yourself grateful each day to be part of a high-functioning  senior leadership team and surrounded by colleagues who support and pray for each other. You  realize that this is the job that finally connects excellence with purpose.'
