Job Description:

Why Choose Us?
As one of the nation's premier humanitarian organizations, the American Red Cross is dedicated to helping people in need throughout the United States and, in association with other Red Cross networks, throughout the world. We depend on the many generous contributions of time, blood, and money from the American public to support our lifesaving services and programs. At the American Red Cross, you will enjoy a collaborative work culture committed to the diversity of our people, programs, and services. If you share our passion for helping people, join us in this excellent career opportunity. Work where your career is a force for good.

At the American Red Cross, you have a direct impact on a meaningful mission. When you join our team, you can help save lives every day. You'll be part of a like-minded team that shares a passion for making a difference and a work environment that supports growth, learning, and succeeding.

The American Red Cross is seeking a Finance Analyst I to participate in a rotational program to groom them for future leadership positions. Selected individuals will start at the Analyst I level and will immediately enter a rotation through approximately three to four finance teams spending about six months learning and contributing in each (the first rotation may be 9-12 months for training). Teams may include:

  • The Field Finance team that supports the finances of our local regions (this is likely first rotation)
  • The Training Services Finance and Analysis team
  • NHQ Finance Program lead functions such as support to fundraising, domestic disaster, international services, Services to Armed Forces, or IT
  • Biomedical (focused on blood products) operations and supply chain finance team
  • The Biomedical recruitment and collections team.

During the rotation, the analyst will have an employee "coach" to provide regular advice, guidance, and if necessary, trouble shooting. The analyst will also receive advice from one or more volunteer mentors who have achieved significant success in the finance industry as well as formal and informal training from a variety of sources including volunteers, employees, and internal educational opportunities.

To be clear, the intent of the program is for the analyst to perform the regular and ad hoc work of the unit they are supporting at that time. Most of the learning in the program will come from doing the actual work of the unit. Although there may be special projects, this is likely to be the minority of the work; rotators are expected to "get their hands dirty" with the regular finance day to day work and whatever is highest priority at that moment.

After completion of the rotation (about 2 years in), the analyst will be placed with a team for at least one year based on the needs of the finance department combined with personal preference.

This is a virtual opportunity (with possible options to work a few days a week in an office if desired depending on location).
