Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The CCBO activity is a five-year, $48 million initiative of USAID which will serve as USAID's flagship program to target ocean plastics directly at their source in cities and towns. The project works to prevent ocean plastic pollution by building capacity and commitment for Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling (3Rs) and solid waste management (SWM) in urban and peri-urban settings, particularly in riverine and coastal areas. CCBO works with multiple USAID missions on country-specific implementation of national and local activities, and with USAID/Washington on global-level activities.
The Finance and Administration Manager (F&A Manager) is responsible for management and oversight of the finance, administration, and grants management functions of the CCBO program in the Philippines. As the CCBO program expands in other countries (Vietnam, Sri Lanka/Maldives, Indonesia, and possibly India) the F&A Manager may provide similar support and oversight to country teams in those offices. This position will ensure adequate and appropriate internal controls are in place to meet generally recognized accounting standards, consistent with Tetra Tech’s policies and procedures. In addition, the Finance and Administration Manager will oversee administrative aspects of the project office (including management of the office space, documentation/information technology, human resource management, travel and procurement) and support/oversight of the grants program.
