Job Description

YOU needs a new Director of Finance.

BUT - this is not your typical role because Youth Opportunities Unlimited is not your typical organization. 

  • Does the idea of building a strong community by investing youth sound exciting?
  • Are you driven to see people, especially our youth, reach their true potential with a little help and guidance?
  • Have you always wanted to work for a national leader in social enterprise?
  • Is it exciting to think you can make a positive impact to over 3600 youth between 16 and 30 years?
  • Are you ready to use your accounting, financial and business acumen to backstop YOU’s continued evolution as leader in supporting youth to build skills, confidence and independence so they can reach their fullest potential?
  • Do YOU’s values of “Accountable”; Collaborative”; “Compassionate”; “Courageous” “Innovative”; and “Persistent” strike a chord with you?

If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, we invite you to read on.

 Since 1982, YOU has helped lead youth in London and Middlesex County toward success. YOU began as a community-based initiative and has continually developed and strengthened community partnerships. We work with our business, community and government partners (more than 22) to maximize opportunities for youth and to address their most pressing needs. As a non-profit registered charity, YOU receives funding from all levels of government, national, regional and local businesses as well as foundations.

And keeping track of all of this is where you come in!

YOU needs a new Director of Finance - a dynamic individual with a proven track record of success managing, directing and stewarding the finances of the organization.  Responsibilities include complex data analysis, budget forecasting, overseeing accounts and budgets, relationship management and making strategic financial decisions that will promote the long-term financial health of the organization. The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in the not-for-profit sector with strong financial vision and insight to match.
