AfID has recently begun a ground breaking new partnership with one of the world’s largest and most respected development agencies; to build financial management capacity amongst its local partners operating at a national and local level in Nigeria. This international financing institution fights AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria with a 21st century approach; through partnership, transparency, constant learning and results-based funding. The organisation galvanizes support for the fight against AIDS, TB and malaria, working with partners to support the most effective prevention and treatment. They have a historic opportunity to seize new advances in science and apply practical experience to defeat these diseases and remove them as threats to public health.
The organisation spurs partnerships between government, civil society, the private sector and communities living with the diseases, the most effective way to fight these deadly infectious diseases. They do not manage or implement programs on the ground, relying instead on local experts. It works with partners to ensure that funding serves the men, women and children affected by these diseases in the most effective way.
Through AfID volunteers we hope to develop the skills of key finance and management staff working within the National Agencies and NGOs and INGOs delivering essential healthcare services across the country. By doing so, we know that the grant performance process will be more effective and ultimately livers will be saved.
Key areas for focus for trainings, coaching mentoring will include the following;
• Organisational needs assessment/ Internal Audit
• Budget preparation & analysis & proposal writing
• The review & implementation of financial controls & procedures
• Internal and external (donor) grant reporting
• Cash-flow forecasting, Financial planning & audit preparation
• Use of accounting software & MS Excel reporting
• Coaching & mentoring new or inexperienced FMs/FOs and CDs.
This is a unique opportunity to use your experience to make a life-changing difference to the effectiveness of implementing govt agencies, civil society, international development organizations and communities living with and affected by the diseases.
We envision this will be either a 6-8 weeks or 10-12 weeks assignment; they would ideally like a volunteer to support them in June, July & Aug. The role will be based in either Abuja, Abuja & Kaduna State or Calabar Cross River State with last 2 weeks in UK.
The 2 weeks period could be done remotely with occasional travel to the country office for attending meetings.
