Full Time Part Time

Finance and Operations Manager

We are looking for a Finance and Operations Manager who will support our day-to-day financial management and support our team across our two companies (one in Austria and one in Germany). The role will be working closely with the Managing Directors from our base in Vienna, Austria. 

Social Impact Award, founded in 2009, is Europe’s largest community of early-stage social entrepreneurs under 30. We run education and incubation programs in more than 15 countries in Europe, Africa, and Asia to support early-stage social entrepreneurs in developing and implementing innovative business solutions to tackle the most important societal challenges of our times. We do so by hosting events and organizing workshops to raise awareness for social entrepreneurship, teaching the necessary skills to navigate from vague intentions to promising ventures, providing access to networks, and promoting the best teams with the Social Impact Award.

And we are just getting started. In our efforts to achieve significant growth with an even stronger presence and impact around the world in the years to come, we have registered another non-profit company in Germany, which now requires an aligned development of internal financial and operational processes. 

As part of the organizational evolution, we are now looking for an addition to our international team as Finance and Operations Manager. This position will hold an important role in overseeing and managing our finances, keeping track of our contractual obligations, preparing contracts, and supporting internal administrative processes in fields such as human resources, office spaces, and more. This is a great opportunity for someone who has experience in financial and controlling roles, has a natural passion for numbers and analytics, and is looking forward to working in a fast-paced, international start-up environment.

Job Description

While many tasks, areas of work, and projects will be shaped by you in alignment with the whole Social Impact Award team, we are looking for your support in the following areas: 

Coordination of financial operations

  • Budgeting and financial forecasting of the organization
  • Accounts payables – leading the incoming invoice process, preparing monthly accounts payables overview, preparing payments
  • Accounts receivables – leading the outgoing invoice process, preparing monthly accounts receivable overview, collecting accounts receivables
  • Continuing the upgrade of our financial processes and related systems integrations
  • Leading annual and monthly accounts closures, as well as tax and project audits
  • Supporting financial project reporting
  • Acting as a liaison to external service providers (such as tax advisors and payroll accounting) 

Supporting the team operations together with the managing directors

  • Preparing and filing employment contracts and other legal documents
  • Managing adequate working environments for the whole team
  • Scheduling occasional team meetings 
  • Keeping an overview of the contractual obligations and deadlines for various partners

What do we offer?

A unique working environment: 

  • Become part of a growing, international community (20+ countries on 3 continents) of people driving social change
  • Become part of a young, international team in which “new work” is lived, and that responds to every personality with the help of holacracy 
  • Flexibility to work remotely whenever you need it – from your house, a cafe, or other cities and countries.
  • Space for individual and team reflections
  • Targeted training offers
  • Participation in international gatherings (at least 2 weeks a year) at alternating locations in Europe, Africa, and Asia
  • Workplace in the vibrant co-working space of Impact Hub Vienna, in the heart of the 7th district
  • We offer you the possibility to personally determine the number of hours for the position and we can do anything between 20 and 40 hours per week. The position is limited to 12 months with the prospect of an unlimited employment contract after that period. 
  • The salary of this position will be individually determined based on your skills and experiences. The minimum salary for this position is 28.000€ per year based on full-time employment in Vienna,  Austria with the willingness to offer considerably more depending on the experience.
