Financial Officer International Partnerships & Programmes (IPP)

This is a paid position for 32 hours per week

Liliane Fonds stands for an inclusive and diverse society in which everyone can participate, regardless of background, characteristics and preferences. We are an organization in which all those different colleagues are respected and belong. Together we achieve the best and most beautiful results.

As Financial Officer for International Partnerships & Programmes (IPP), you are responsible for the financial assessment of the programme expenditures of Liliane Fonds, for the guidance in this area of Strategic Partner Organisations (SPOs) with which Liliane Fonds collaborates and for the (further) development of financial processes and systems for the implementation of the programmes by SPOs. In addition, you will support your colleagues from the IPP department on financial matters.

You will be part of the Support Team of the IPP department and you will receive guidance from the Support Team Manager.

What are you going to do?

For the financial assessment of programme expenditure, the financial monitoring of proposals, reports and audits and the assessment of the administrative organisation are important topics.

You advise the SPOs in developing annual plans, propose improvements of administrative processes and internal control based on budgets, financial reports, audits and financial aspects from organisational assessments, and provide instructions and training for their employees. You conduct risk analyses and draft proposals for improvement. For advising and monitoring SPOs, you will work closely with the Organisational Development Advisors, who are responsible for the programmes in the various countries.

You will support your colleagues from the IPP department in allocating budgets and with the financial accountability of expenditures, and you will provide input for management information to the department manager. To this end, you will be in close contact with the Finance team of the Business Operations Department.

In coordination with the responsible Organisational Development Advisor, you will visit SPOs to strengthen organisational capacity and processes, and for internal monitoring.

You will support the Institutional Fundraising team in developing budgets for programs that are submitted to donors, and you will be responsible for the financial monitoring and reporting of funded programs to institutional donors.

In addition, you will support the IPP department with due diligence checks, and develop and implement procedures or processes necessary to meet donor requirements.

Who are you?

You are perfectly capable of interpreting data and practices and arriving at substantiated assessments. You are strong in setting goals and priorities and know how to deploy actions, resources and people needed to achieve your goals at the right time. You have an eye for identifying problems and opportunities and come up with solutions and proposals on your own.
You have a warm heart for international cooperation with the Global South, as well as the mission of Liliane Fonds.
Finally, you recognize yourself in the three core values of Liliane Fonds: trust, connection and openness.

What do you bring?

  • HBO+ working and thinking level;
  • you meet all the legal requirements to work in the EU;
  • training in and extensive knowledge of complex financial systems and methodologies;
  • knowledge of and experience with Project Cycle Management and financial project administration of comparable organisations;

What do we offer you?

  • a driven and expert team with a heart for our mission;
  • a salary of at least €3,149 with career opportunities to a maximum of €5,062 gross per month (job scale 10) for a 38-hour working week (excluding 8% holiday allowance);

Liliane Fonds has an active integrity and child safeguarding policy. All employees sign the code of conduct and are obliged to abide by it. In our code of conduct, the protection of children is given specific attention. All employees are also required to submit a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG). During the selection process, we also carry out a reference/integrity check with two previous employers or clients.


Around 50,000 children with disabilities received support from Liliane Fonds in 2022. We started a change in their lives. A change that, for most, means the difference between a life on the margins and a life with others and room for development.

80% of all children with disabilities live in the poorest parts of the world. That’s no coincidence. Poverty leads to disabilities, for example due to insufficient healthy food, a poor living environment with poor sanitation and limited access to health care. Conversely, disability leads to more poverty. This is partly because parents of children with disabilities incur higher costs for care and medicines and have to spend a lot of time caring for their child and therefore have less time to work. And also because the children themselves rarely have access to education and, at a later age, the labour market. They are also hampered by social exclusion and stigma. In this way, the vicious circle of poverty and disability has been closed.

Liliane Fonds breaks this vicious circle and improves the quality of life and future opportunities of children with disabilities. We make their living, playing and learning world more accessible and contribute to a society in which they can participate. We always do this together with local partners, who know the situation on the ground and have the network to provide this help in the best possible way.

At our office in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, more than 90 employees and more than 80 volunteers work together for Liliane Fonds and MIVA. Since 2018, Liliane Fonds and MIVA have formed a personal union.
