Partnership Overview

The Finance Director (FD) plays a key role in enabling workers being sent from the Caribbean to serve amongst the least reached or within the Caribbean team.

The main responsibilities of the FD are supervising OM Caribbean's accounting function, budgeting, preparation of financial statements and reports, and donations accounting. The FD is assisted by finance assistants based in the various islands or working remotely.

Required Skills

The OM Caribbean Field is made up of about 30 countries. Our main focus is mobilizing Caribbean believers to go as missionaries all over the world. As part of the ‘Global South', much of our ministry is helping the church across the Caribbean understand that it has the privilege of sending missionaries and then encouraging them to sow into this ministry. The Field comprises 5 legally registered entities and reporting in both local currencies and USD is required. The main finances include recording and allocation of donations given to support missionaries and projects in any of OM's 110+ fields of service and for operational needs. Donations are received in local bank accounts and online.     Required Skills & Experience:

  • Experience of using accounting software and preparing financial statements.
  • Good knowledge of MS Office 365, especially Excel and Sharepoint, and a willingness to learn OM's accounting software (currently Open Petra, but moving to Xledger in 2025). Experience of using a CRM would be helpful.
  • Organizational skills with good attention to detail.
  • Team leadership experience.
  • Ability to work independently and flexibly.
  • Strong communication skills, with good written and spoken English.
  • Good inter-personal skills.
  • Ability to handle information with due confidentiality.

* The jobs listed on this website do not have a set salary. This means that the person who applies will need to raise their own support, which is money that they will use to live on. The amount of support money they need to raise will depend on things like where they are from, if they have a family, and what country they will be working in. There might be some jobs that pay salary, but these are rare and would need to be negotiated with the sending offices and the teams you'd like to serve with. If you have any questions about this, please contact your local home office. Always keep in mind that our ministry depends on generous giving from our partners around the globe and God's ongoing provision. Joining OM is always seen as a step of faith and trust in a God who will provide for our needs through his chosen people.
