Youth For Understanding (YFU) advances intercultural understanding, life-long learning, global competences, mutual respect, and social responsibility through transformational educational exchanges for generations of youth, families, and communities, supported by dedicated volunteers and professional staff.
YFU is a volunteer-based global non-profit community driven by the passion of people, consisting of 55+ member organizations across six continents. As a leader in intercultural exchange and educational programs for more than 60 years, YFU has impacted more than 270.000 students – and their host families, schools and networks – and more than 70.000 volunteers.
Our new global strategy sets the direction to operate as one global organization, and our Global Office is the global structure that works to enable the YFU membership worldwide to achieve our mission by providing leadership, critical services and opportunities to grow and thrive as (a) sustainable and quality organization(s).To support its Global Office in managing, restructuring and administrating finances and operations, we are recruiting a Finance and Administration Coordinator.
The Finance and Administration Coordinator reports to the Secretary General and is responsible for all financial and related reporting and administrative matters of our two legal entities YFU IES and EEE YFU, together forming the Global Office. This new role has been created in Brussels to manage the accounting, financial and administrative transition process and implement efficient finance management, controlling and accounting processes, within the Global Office and with regard to financial interactions with YFU’s member organizations.
