ABOUT FREEDOM HOUSE
Established more than 80 years ago on the core conviction that freedom flourishes in democratic nations where governments are accountable to their people, Freedom House is a nonpartisan non-profit organization that works to defend and expand freedom globally to help secure a world where all are free. Around the world, repressive regimes are preventing billions of people from exercising their fundamental rights. We identify and analyze threats to freedom, mobilize decision makers to respond to those threats and seize opportunities for progress, and support activists and organizations working to defend and expand freedom. We are dedicated to ensuring that the United States serves as a positive model of democratic practice at home and a consistent champion of freedom globally. By gathering authoritative data and leveraging our global networks, Freedom House is an unwavering beacon in protecting human rights and promoting democratic governance.
As part of the Financial Planning and Analysis team, the Business Analyst will work closely with the Director of Finance, a centralized Grants Administration and Compliance team, other finance staff, and program teams to assist in monitoring Freedom House’s departmental budgets, including international programs, research, policy and advocacy, fundraising and business development, and other overhead departments. The position is responsible for performing analyses of budgeted versus actual spending from funding sources such as the US federal government, corporations, foundations, and other international public agencies.
The Business Analyst will also assist in the preparation of monthly, quarterly, and annual budget reports for internal management and the Board of Trustees. Responsibilities will also include cash management reports, federal and non-federal drawdown operations, enhancing and developing databases, analyzing and improving business workflow processes, ongoing analyses of the institution’s financial position, and research related to various regulatory and compliance requirements.
