Head of Corporate Services – Ethiopia
Farm Africa is a different kind of charity, working to end hunger and bring prosperity to rural Africa.
The impact that we are making with our long-term sustainable, community-led projects in sub-Saharan Africa is enabling communities to significantly improve their livelihoods.
Farm Africa has worked in Ethiopia since 1988.
From dairy goats and good quality seeds to business training and forest conservation, the Ethiopia country programme provides simple and practical support to help lift farmers and herders out of poverty.
With 2014 being the year of programmes in Farm Africa, the Farm Africa Ethiopia hub office in Addis has undergone some changes with all support/corporate services being pooled together in order to enhance the delivery of these services to the wider programme.
This has created a new and exciting position of Head of Corporate Services, based in the Farm Africa Ethiopia country office in Addis Ababa.
The Head of Corporate Services will be responsible for ensuring that back office functions effectively, efficiently and professionally deliver corporate services to the programme while at the same time ensuring that this is done in accordance with the laid down policies and procedures.
He/she will provide oversight of financial, logistics, procurement, risk and human resource management.
He/she will also be responsible for nurturing the synergetic relationships between the back office functions and with the senior management team and all programme senior managers to enhance coordination of activities and the delivery of services.
We are looking for a person with the ability to lead and motivate teams in the various functions into a coherent whole with the aim of supporting the programme teams in the delivery of their services in line with Farm Africa’s vision and mission.
You will have a successful track record of working within the NGO sector in a senior management role. You will have excellent hands-on financial, operations, procurement, human resource and IT systems management experience.
Exceptional multi-tasking, relationshipmbuilding and client orientation skills are pre-requisites.
The closing deadline is 5pm on 29th January 2014.
