Open Positions

Non-Profit Finance Director (Part-Time) | $34 - $44 an hour

As our part-time Director of Finance, clocking in 20-25 hours weekly, you play an integral role in steering the financial compass of our esteemed YouthBuild Program. Reporting to the Senior Director of Finance and Development, your core mandate spans the gamut from crystallizing financial strategies, safeguarding organizational assets, to articulating transparent financial narratives for our leadership, board, and stakeholders. With YouthBuild Lake County primarily operating on the backbone of grants – Federal, State, and private donations – a significant facet of your role involves deftly navigating the nuances of each grant’s budgeting and cost allocations. A deep-seated acumen for Federal Uniform Guidance and cost allocation isn’t just desired—it’s paramount.

On a typical day, you’d be at the helm of grant management, supervising the vouchering process, and keeping an eagle eye on payroll and tax reports. Liaising with Jitasa, our external bookkeeping ally, you’ll ensure seamless information flow, from grant contracts to expense coding. Your expertise will be pivotal in crafting policies in tandem with grant and federal requisites. As a valuable cog in our finance committee, your insights will shape board decisions, while also partnering with the Executive Director and Jitasa’s advisory wing for the annual budget. From leading all financial audits to orchestrating benefit plans and supervising a dedicated team of 2, your role is a blend of strategic foresight, meticulous precision, and inspiring leadership.
