BBC Media Action reaches over 200 million people a year across Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, transforming lives through media and communication. We are recruiting four exciting new Project Accountants to join a high performing, internationally-facing team and provide key financial decision support to the regional international offices.

The roles are wide-ranging and broad in their remit, but the focus of each role will be on providing decision support, taking a forward looking approach and involve international travel to meet the regional teams in person. Each role will directly support a specific group of regional country offices and aim to ensure the effective control of the accounting and financial reporting processes.
