Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition Finance and Administration Officer Jobs in Rwanda

About the Role

Underpinned by strong economic growth and high-level government commitment, the potential to accelerate improvements in nutritional outcomes in Rwanda is very high. The food systems pathway submitted by the Government of Rwanda at the 2021 UN Food Systems Summit provides a strong basis for realizing a range of food systems improvements that have the potential to improve the nutritional status, particularly of young children and women.

The preparation of the next National Strategy for Transformation (NST-2) and the next Strategic Plan for Agriculture (PSTA-5) provide the opportunity to elevate nutrition outcomes as a priority and to advance these outcomes through the identification of a set of coherent and impactful policies, programmes, and actions.

To achieve this goal, GAIN is seeking a Finance and Administration Officer for an anticipated 18 month project (subject to an extension of 5 years depending on funds availability) to support food systems policy work in Rwanda.

The Finance and Administration Officer will be responsible for providing administrative, coordination and financial management support under the supervision of the Senior Policy Advisor.

The position holder will ensure processing, recording of payment transactions and office management processes are done in timely and accurate manner. The position holder supports compliance, and the expectation is for strong collaboration with all office staff members.

The position requires resolute fiduciary responsibility of all financial resources and high professional standards with a willingness and ability to enforce compliance with GAIN and donor policies and procedures. This role will be based in the new project office in Kigali and therefore the position holder will support the start-up phase. GAIN will only make offers once the funding is secured.

Key Responsibilities include:

  • Work with the Senior Policy Advisor to plan and implement financial and admin operations systems in accordance with GAIN policies and procedures while keeping within donor requirements. This includes systems for Cash Flow management, consolidation of accounting information, internal controls, financial reporting,
