Position description

With 50 years of experience and working in over 50 countries, Population Services International (PSI) is the world's leading non-profit social marketing organization. PSI is reimagining healthcare, by putting the consumer at the center, and wherever possible – bringing care to the front door. We are working to fix market failures, shape future health markets and shift policy and funding to better support consumer empowered healthcare.

There are over 7,000 “PSI'ers” around the world. We are a diverse group of entrepreneurial development professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and experience. All with unique skills that we bring to the critically important work that we do.

Join us!

The Finance department supports the global operations of PSI, and we are looking for an experienced manager to join our Finance team to lead our donor reporting, accounts receivable, and revenue recognition functions. PSI has diverse funding sources with multiple sets of regulations. This position will ensure that revenue is properly recognized in accordance with GAAP and that donor reporting complies with funder requirements.

Given the complexity of this position we are looking for a dynamic individual who is an experienced manager and has a solid risk radar to help ensure that PSI continues to do what is right.

  • Reconciles related general ledger accounts monthly, including accounts receivable, unbilled, deferred grant revenue, deferred program income, refundable donor advances, and restricted and unrestricted contributions.
  • Coordinates with Program Management Teams, Grants & Contracts, and Budget & Insurance teams to ensure that all awards, contributions, and pledges receivable are set up and recorded accurately.

The candidate we hire will embody PSI's corporate values:

Measurement: You use hard evidence to make decisions and guide your work. You set clear goalposts in advance and explain clearly if you need to move them.

Pragmatism: You'll strive to deliver the best possible result with the resources available. You won't be paralyzed by a need to make things perfect.

Honesty: You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings – it's the only way you'll learn and improve.

Collaboration: You'll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters, and in our country offices – if you try to do it all yourself, you won't succeed.

Trust: You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt

Commitment: You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin.
