The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) has promoted the study of Egypt’s cultural history by thousands of Americans over the last 66 years. With the support of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and in close collaboration with Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities (MOA), over 75 projects of monument conservation and specialized training have been completed and over 750 Egyptian archaeologists and conservators have been trained in preserving Egyptian culture.
ARCE is at a key transitional moment. Operating under a new strategic plan, led by a new U.S.-based Executive Director and Cairo Office Director, and housed in new Washington, D.C. offices along with those in Egypt, ARCE is poised to carry out major new approaches to the challenges of building a multi-faceted network of partnerships with educational and cultural institutions, foundations, and corporations in two preeminent global cultures and civilizations. ARCE’s Business and Finance Manager will help strengthen the organization by taking responsibility for its financial health.
ARCE is seeking an experienced financial manager with a background in government contract compliance to help steer the finances of ARCE’s research and collaborative partnerships in Egypt and the US. Reporting to the Executive Director, the Business and Finance Manager will oversee and coordinate closely with both U.S.- and Cairo-based staff to manage a growing $5M budget and $56M endowment. As the organization’s primary financial officer at U.S. headquarters, the Business and Finance Manager plans and directs financial accounting and annual budgets, collaborates in auditing and investing, and oversees cash management, payroll, and other fiscal operations, establishing necessary internal control measures and maintaining and reporting accounting data.
