Jhpiego seeks a Finance and Administration (F&A) Director to provide financial and administrative management for an upcoming USAID-funded multi-country family planning project in francophone West Africa. The project goal is to increase the national percentage of public and private facilities implementing high impact practices for FP in four selected West African countries by: institutionalizing a system for adaptation, and replication of key FP high impact practices; leveraging and engaging domestic resources, donor support, and local communities to build sustainability and scale of selected high impact practices; and institutionalizing a sustainable and self-regulating system of service quality assurance and monitoring. The project will work closely with local and national governments to prioritize this in their national plans; leveraging partnerships with regional and international organizations; and building the capacity of nongovernmental and civil society organizations. The project will operate over a five-year period. In consultation with the COP, the F&A Director will provide financial and administrative management, overseeing all financial, contractual, information technology, human resources, and procurement activities. S/he will be responsible for financial and administrative decision making and problem solving in short timeframes while ensuring operational and project quality and integrity across borders and multiple countries. S/he will ensure that the financial reports are compatible with standard accounting practices and follow Jhpiego and USAID rules and regulations.
This position is contingent upon award from USAID. West African nationals, especially native French speakers, are strongly encouraged to apply.
