These pose an every-day danger for decades and disrupt the lives of communities for generations. At MAG, we believe that whenever and wherever wars happen, ordinary people should not be the ones who pay the price.

MAG has expanded significantly over the past three years and we have ambitious plans which means we will need to continue to develop and grow our global financial strategy, so we are as good as we can possibly be. We are seeking a Finance Director to build on our significant achievements to date and help drive the organisation forward at an exciting time. As Finance Director you will:
