Vacancy Announcement – Finance and Administration Officer (FAO)
The South Centre was established in 1995 as a permanent inter-governmental organization of developing countries. It has full intellectual independence in working towards the establishment of a fair, equitable, and rule-based global order. In responding to the needs of the South, it is open to new ideas and approaches (including multilateralism and regionalism) that can promote better South-South and North-South dialogue and cooperation.
The South Centre is a small institution in which all staff members work in a team and help in whatever tasks they are requested and may be required to undertake. With new project funding and the increasing complexity of work the need for capacity reinforcement within the finance and administrative function has been identified as a priority.
In that context, the South Centre is seeking to recruit a Finance and Administration Officer, “FAO” in its Finance and Administration department. Besides the general roles and responsibilities of the finance function, the incumbent shall also be engaged on specific project related financial management aspects as well as in the continuous improvement and capacity upgradation of the finance and administration systems within the Centre. The FAO, together with other staff in the Finance and Administration Unit shall work together as a team to support the implementation of the South Centre’s mandate.
The FAO reports to the Controller – Finance and Administration and assists in dealing with administrative and finance issues affecting a program fund management in particular and other substantive programmes in general.
