Current Hiring Practices and Trends in the Development Sector
- BY David Mackenzie
Refugee.Info is an accessible and responsive platform that facilitates information dissemination and exchange between humanitarian actors and crisis-affected populations. Initially deployed in the Greek islands of Lesvos and Kos in 2015, the project was designed to complement traditional human rights protection programming with the overarching outcome of increasing the safety of displaced men, women and children. In partnership with Mercy Corps and PeaceGeeks, the IRC is now expanding the Refugee.Info platform and communication model to new contexts under the name Signpost. Global expansion and technical support for the Signpost project is managed by a HQ-based team that sits within the Emergency Unit.
Scope of Work: The HQ-based Signpost team is seeking an experienced, financially literate Grants Manager to provide budgeting, financial management and general operational support for a 10-12 week period. The position will report to the Senior Project Coordinator for Refugee.Info and will ideally be based in New York. Remote working arrangements may be considered provided that this does not hinder the ability to effectively process expenses. The Grants/Finance manager must be willing to support some administrative functions such as processing TERs and other expenses, handling contracts, and maintaining grant files.
