The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is an international financial institution and a specialized United Nations agency dedicated to eradicating poverty and hunger in rural areas in developing countries. It does so by financing projects and programmes that increase agricultural productivity and raise rural incomes, and by advocating at the local, national and international levels for policies that enable poor rural people to overcome poverty.
IFAD is currently seeking to strengthen its global financial management consultant roster, ideally under retainer contracts up to a maximum of 11 months in support of IFAD-financed projects. Tasks usually include financial management capacity and risk assessments, design of financial management processes, fiduciary supervision and implementation support. Language skills in Arabic, English, French and/or Spanish are required for most assignments.
Appropriate experience in development and qualifications in Public Financial Management (PFM), accounting or auditing are required. Candidates should be professionals with strategic vision, team orientation, proven capacity to generate results, and an understanding of and commitment to development. If shortlisted for the roster, candidates will be tested on PFM and relevant IFAD-specific procedures (materials will be provided) before being accredited for possible contracting.
IFAD is committed to achieving diversity and is seeking a balanced workforce from IFAD’s member states. Women are particularly encouraged to apply. This invitation is open to freelance individuals and not consulting firms.
