The Chief Operating and Finance Officer (COFO) is a newly envisioned strategic leadership role who will serve both as the overall lead for the operational functions that enable Candid's work and a critical thought partner and advisor to the CEO. As a key member of the executive team reporting to the CEO, the COFO will coach, mentor, and directly manage four leaders (and a total team of 22): Director of Financial Planning & Analysis, Director of Accounting & Controller, VP Talent, and VP Planning.
The COFO will be directly responsible for leading and evolving the finance, people, strategic, and planning functions that are core to deliver on Candid's mission. This includes accountability for the financial health and stability of the organization; nurturing talent including recruitment, retention, and overall engagement; strategic direction and priorities (in conjunction with the CEO); and both organization-wide and executive team processes and planning. The COFO will advise on all fiscal matters, providing leadership to guide Candid's financial activities including annual and long-term planning, accounting, budgeting, forecasting, analysis, risk management, compliance, and funding.
This is an ideal opportunity for a strategic, collaborative, empathetic, and forward-thinking leader to contribute to making the social sector more efficient, effective, and equitable.
