Country: United States of America
Organization: World Vision
Closing date: 15 Jul 2021

Our over 34,000 staff members working in nearly 100 countries are united in helping the most vulnerable children overcome poverty and experience fullness of life. We help children of all backgrounds, even in the most dangerous places, inspired by our Christian faith.

Through our work, every 60 seconds … a family gets water … a hungry child is fed … a family receives the tools to overcome poverty.

Here’s where you come in:

As Director, Foreign Exchange and Risk, you will oversee Global Treasury’s foreign exchange risk management function and support Partnership entities to manage other aspects of financial risk, including but not limited to yields, inflation and capital markets concerns. As the leader of this critical business function, you will participate with Global Treasury management in senior-level finance meetings to identify the scope and breadth of global financial risk, coordinate multiple financial risk specialties to determine appropriate strategies to meet Partnership objectives, and oversee execution of such strategies. Coordinating such strategies represents a tremendous challenge given differences in structures, relationships and resources, but it will be critical nonetheless for the Director, Foreign Exchange and Risk to understand Partnership objectives enough to determine potential risk exposures and recommend (and coordinate) strategies for execution. Furthermore, you will represent the Partnership’s global financial risk function before banks and brokerages, ensuring the pricing and availability of financial risk products and services.

Requirements include:

  • Bachelor’s degree in finance or related field.
  • Minimum seven to ten years’ experience in financial risk management and risk-based trading, or (ii) master’s degree in finance or related, and three to five years’ experience in financial risk management and risk-based trading.
  • Demonstrated ability to utilize Bloomberg for financial and market analysis.
  • Understanding of portfolio management, including assessing potential investments considered for inclusion in Partnership portfolios, rebalancing existing portfolios according to agreed parameters, and determining appropriate strategies for the numerous investment climates in which the Partnership is present.
  • Experience assessing potential risk management strategies according to fundamental and technical considerations.
  • The position requires ability and willingness to travel domestically and internationally up to 10% of the time.
