What about the Financial Coordinator ?

As Financial Coordinator you will be accountable for the sound financial, accounting and budgetary management of the mission. You will be the financial representative for the mission, both internally and externally (donors, authorities, NGOs, etc.).

  • Coordination: You will centralize and diffuse information within the mission and to headquarters for all financial aspects of the mission, and consolidate the internal and external reporting for these domains.

The challenges that await you :

  • Security context that oftentimes interferes with the planning of the work and generates additional challenges;
  • Remote work that may weigh down on the quality of output (to a lesser extent now thanks to long months of experience with the coronavirus and security-related restrictions)

What you will need to succeed

  • Training : You hold a Master‘s degree in Financial and Accounting management. If you have a technical background in project management, it would be an asset.
  • Experience : You are strengthened by minimum 2 years of experience in financial / accounting management. A previous experience abroad in Humanitarian action would be appreciated. You already worked with Première Urgence Internationale? It would be a definite asset!
  • Skills : You demonstrate strong writing and financial skills, you have a sound knowledge of institutional donor procedures. Excel has no secret for you, and you ideally master the use of SAGA accounting software.
  • Qualities : You are a good communicator, both in writing and orally. You demonstrate good team spirit, analytical capability, a sense of responsibility, organisational skills, reactivity, and an ability to adapt. You have a good resistance to pressure and particularly in unstable circumstances.
  • Languages : English has no secrets for you! All the better, it is mandatory for this position. If you speak Arabic and/or French, it would be a definite asset.
