FINANCE MANAGER (Republic of South Sudan)
At Intermón Oxfam, we are people who believe in justice and solidarity, and work to change the world. We fight the causes of poverty and injustice, and not just against their consequences. We are acting in a comprehensive way in around fifty countries of Africa, Latin America and Asia, working on more than 500 development and humanitarian action projects, we promote fair trade and social awareness and mobilisation campaigns.
Finance Manager is responsible to guarantee a proper financial and accounting management, the compliance with legal framework in the country, the internal regulations and the quality of Oxfam's activities. The position also contributes to the development and implementation of organizational and funding strategies, policies and practices.
A political crisis within the Government of South Sudan which began on 15th December 2013 has spilled over into armed conflict based on ethnic divisions. The result of this has been significant movement as people have fled their homes within the capital, Juba, and other areas affected by fighting. The major newly reported concentrations of displaced people are in Central Equatoria, Lakes, Jonglei, Upper Nile and Unity states. In particular over 75,000 people from Jonglei have been displaced to Minkaman and surrounding areas in Awerial County, Lakes State. The most optimistic predictions suggest that the crisis will continue for some time and that it is unlikely that people will be able/willing to return to their homes in the near future.
Oxfam is already based and working in several existing humanitarian programs in the Country and currently starting a humanitarian response emergency to the on-going crisis in Awarial and Jonglei.
