The Fiscal Affairs Department of the International Monetary Fund is seeking experienced public financial management (PFM) experts for providing capacity development (CD) support to South and Southeast Asian countries. The PFM Advisors will be located at the following IMF regional centers:


In addition, the IMF intends to place a resident advisor in Colombo for supporting the Government of Sri Lanka’s PFM reforms.  


The advisors will coordinate and deliver technical assistance and training to ministries of finance and related institutions in countries covered by them on a wide spectrum of PFM topics, such as fiscal forecasting; budget planning, formulation and execution; cash and debt management; fiscal accounting and reporting; public investment management; and fiscal risk analysis and management. They will also be expected to engage with the country authorities on emerging PFM topics, such as climate considerations in PFM, gender budgeting, and digitalization of PFM functions and processes. The advisors will liaise effectively with senior government officials, technical staff, and other CD providers, including working closely with other IMF regional advisors in SARTTAC/CDOT, IMF resident advisors in other Asian countries, and other development partners supporting PFM reforms in these countries.


The advisors will be appointed for an initial period of one year, renewable for a maximum period of three/four years. They will work under the technical supervision of the Fiscal Affairs Department of the IMF, in close coordination with the Director of the concerned regional center.




Applicants should have a university degree or equivalent (at least at master’s level), preferably in economics, finance, or accounting, and four years of relevant professional experience. Preference will be given to applicants with a minimum of 15 years of practical experience in a senior line or advisory position within a ministry of finance or international financial institution. The successful candidate should have demonstrated expertise on a broad range of PFM topics, thorough appreciation of institution building challenges in emerging market and developing economies, and experience in strategic prioritization, design, and implementation of PFM reforms at national level.


Applicants should be proficient in English; have strong oral and written communication skills (including electronic media); have excellent interpersonal skills; and have the ability to work as part of a team, to maintain effective and cooperative relations with national authorities and development partners at a senior level, and to handle sensitive issues with discretion in a multicultural environment.  Experience in developing, organizing, and conducting training courses and workshops—virtually as well as in person—would be desirable. A willingness to travel extensively will be necessary. Knowledge of PFM systems and reforms in Asian countries and a thorough understanding of IMF CD strategies and practices will be highly desirable.
