You are a seasoned business leader with deep experience building and leading the administrative function of a global non-profit, spanning finance, human resources, reporting and audit, contracts, procurement, facilities, and risk management.

We are a young and fast-growing organization, transitioning from a start-up phase to greater maturity. Our administrative team is responsible for guiding and responding to the needs of our country affiliates, as well as ensuring proper compliance globally. Our ideal candidate has supported a global non-profit organization on a similar journey to establish and implement robust policies and procedures, and to deliver consistent operational excellence, across finance, human resources, compliance, and contracts.
You will therefore need to have superb problem-solving and team leadership skills, combined with the ability to lead policy development, design team structures, and execute detailed processes. An ideal candidate should be comfortable in navigating ambiguity to arrive at implementable solutions.

Worldwide, more than 75 million young people are unemployed. But many employers can’t find people with the skills they need for entry-level jobs. Generation was created in 2014 to help bridge this gap—at speed and scale.
We’re building a skills-training methodology that can serve hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions, of young people a year. And we’re building proof that this training creates real business outcomes for employers, and lasting career impact for trainees—so everyone has the incentive to invest in skills. Our goal is to help our students achieve personal and professional success—and fundamentally change their life trajectories. Generation programs prepare unemployed or underemployed young people, aged 18 to 29, for jobs in four sectors: healthcare, technology, retail/sales, and skilled trades.
Today, Generation is active in twelve countries—101 cities and 280 sites—with diverse social, economic and labor-market contexts.
