Finance Consultant and Fraud Investigator #380 & 381

£400 + VAT (day rate)

Bangui, Africa

6 months

Our partner is an international humanitarian and development organisation. In fragile contexts, they work with local communities and service providers in creating food security, and frontline aid workers in offering healthcare, education, and assuring security and justice. They are seeking urgent support in the Central African Republic, where they have been working in 7 provinces for just under 15 years.

They had considerable challenges in their CAR offices, and as a result had to let go of the Country Director and senior management. A combination of the audit & investigative reports, as well as a needs analysis undertaken by the incoming Country Director, offer an indication on the extent of support required. They have a Finance Manager in country, however, is overwhelmed and needs support. They are seeking the support of a Finance Consultant and Fraud Investigator, details below:

Finance Consultant #380

The purpose of this consultancy will be to support in:

  • Reviewing the investigative audit & assessing the control environment, and strengthening the systems and communications between the HQ and satellite offices, and implementing recommendations of the audit;
  • Looking to strengthen processes and controls around cash transactions
  • Looking at the structure of the finance function, reviewing role descriptions and segregation of duties.
  • Strengthen the procurement process to eliminate/minimise risk of fraud
  • Reviewing and updating the finance procedures manual, and training all staff in its use
  • Creating an internal audit function
  • Creating an integrity policy and training staff in its use.

It is anticipated that the consultany will take 6 months, with the possibility of an extension. The individual will largely be based in Bangui, travelling to the satellite offices depending on security. The organisation will cover the cost of travel, accommodation and food in country. They are looking to offer a day rate.

Fraud Investigator #381

The purpose of this role will be to investigate financial fraud. We are awaiting details of this, but it is likely to be conducted remotely, with perhaps a short trip to the CAR. They will be looking to pay a day rate for this too.

For both roles, they are seeking experienced finance professionals, fluent French speakers, with a background ideally in special investigations (including fraud) and controls/finance systems strengthening, and experience working in a fragile context. They are seeking a quick turnaround on both roles, and therefore early applications are encouraged.
