Level 3: the post holder will have contact with children and/or young people either frequently (e.g. once a week or more) or intensively (e.g. four days in one month or more or overnight) because they work country programs; or are visiting country programs; or because they are responsible for implementing the police checking/vetting process staff.
Save the Children seeks a Finance Director for the USDA McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program. The LEARN program will be implemented in six counties in Liberia: Gbarpolu, Grand Bassa, Grand Gedeh, River Cess, River Gee, and Sinoe and will reach 229 schools and 112,498 direct beneficiaries throughout the course of the project. Save the Children will carry out the LEARN program over a period of five years. LEARN's project design addresses both of USDA's strategic objectives: Improving literacy of school-age children (SO1) and Increased use of health and dietary practices (SO2). Activities of the project focus on improving the quality of literacy instruction, student attentiveness, student attendance, improving knowledge of health and hygiene practices, safe food preparation and storage, and nutrition, and by increasing access to clean water and sanitation, preventative health interventions, and food prep materials and storage equipment.
As a member of the Senior Management Team (SMT) in Liberia, the Director of Finance shares in the overall responsibility for the direction and co-ordination of the LEARN Program. The Director of Finance in his/her capacity is responsible for finance administration, fiscal management, grant management, and financial and grant reporting.
