Your job

As an MSF finance manager, you are primarily responsible for the financial management of all MSF projects in one country. You work in close collaboration with the finance team in the headquarters and with the project teams in the country where you are based.

  • Supervision of the mission accounting
  • Management of the cash flow and treasury
  • Preparation of financial proposals
  • Preparation of donor reports
  • Effectiveness of the internal control system 
  • Recruitment and development of the administrative staff team

Additionally, you support the project administrators in all financial matters. This means that in any given country, you might be responsible for the finances of several projects. You validate payments to suppliers and to employees and thereby ensure the transparency of spendings. 
You will be working alongside a local team.

Being in the role of a manager, you will be supervising, training and coaching a small team.

  • Other languages (Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian) are an asset
