Job Description

They say money can’t buy happiness, but have you ever thought of using your financial leadership skills to impact eternity?

As a supported* Chief Financial Officer, you would oversee our organization’s entire finance operations in Papua New Guinea. Not only do we oversee Bible translation, but we also run a support community with a school, auto shop, store, air travel, print shop, construction, and municipal services. 

Today, over 2000 people groups, 170 million people, still don’t have the Bible translated into their languages! Wycliffe USA believes the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language or form, and we urgently need you to join the team!

Job Location: Papua New Guinea - Ukarumpa

Want to work in a different location? Wycliffe USA has many open positions located in Africa, Asia, Europe, Americas, and the Pacific! Even though this job is located overseas, you must be legally authorized to work in the United States as per U.S. employment laws.

Every day is worthwhile! You would oversee all accounting system components including the chart of accounts, internal controls, transaction recording procedures and reporting (both internal and external). You would oversee monthly and annual closing of the accounting records. You would also review and modify policies related to financial issues.

This job might be for you if…

  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting, Finance, Economics, or Business or equivalent experience.
  • You are a CPA.
  • You have at least three years of experience as an accounting manager.
  • You are tactful, flexible, and work well with others in a cross-cultural setting.
  • You’re proficient in Microsoft Suite (especially Excel) and standard finance software systems.
  • You have excellent management, leadership, and communication skills. 
  • You work well both independently and in a team.
