About the role

Oaktree is an ambitious not-for-profit with the mission of young people leading, demanding and creating a more just world. As with any organisation, Oaktree needs a solid foundation. The finance team ensures that the financial operations of this million-dollar organisation run effectively and efficiently, enabling Oaktree to achieve maximum impact. 


The finance and legal team is the foundation that enables Oaktree’s operations to run smoothly and maximise its impact. The Director of Finance is part of Oaktree’s Extended Leadership Team and will oversee Oaktree’s financial operations as well as manage Oaktree’s Finance Team of 3-5 people.

  • Assisting the Head of Finance and Operations with ad hoc tasks


We value will over skill, determination over degrees, and passion over years of experience. So go for it. Put your name forward.

  • Be given trust and responsibility to manage the financial operations of Oaktree
  • Gain practical and relevant experience through exposure to a wide variety of work
  • The opportunity to attend all Oaktree’s Finance Sub-Committee meetings to build your understanding of organisational governance structure and be exposed to financial experts across industries
