Posted by Michel Lazare 

The vacancy is open until March 8, 2010. To apply please go to the imf.org web site or click on the following link: http://www.imf.org/external/np/adm/rec/job/howtoap.htm

The Fiscal Affairs Department (FAD) is looking for a well-qualified expert to fill a Public Financial Management (PFM) Resident Advisor position at the West African Regional Technical Assistance Center (West AFRITAC), based in Bamako, Mali. The Advisor's appointment term would be for a period of one year, on a renewable basis, subject to satisfactory performance.
The Advisor will provide technical assistance (TA) on a range of PFM areas to the ten (10) countries covered by West AFRITAC, namely Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, and Togo. The Advisor's work program will cover all PFM areas: legal and regulatory framework; budget preparation (including budget classification, medium-term budgetary frameworks, performance-oriented budgeting); budget execution (including expenditure control, treasury operations, cash management, accounting, fiscal reporting, and financial management information system), internal control and internal audit.
The Advisor will work under the general direction of the Coordinator of West AFRITAC while, on substantive issues, he/she will report to FAD staff in Washington D.C. Extensive travel within the West AFRITAC region should be expected. The successful candidate will work closely with the existing PFM advisor.


The successful candidate will hold a university degree in the relevant fields, if possible post-graduate. Applicant should possess excellent written and oral communication skills in French, at least a working knowledge of English, a mastery of computer applications and information technologies (such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Internet), and experience in project management. He/she will need excellent interpersonal skills, an ability to work as part of a team, an aptitude to effectively transfer technical knowledge and maintain effective and cooperative relations with national authorities as well as donors, as well as capacity to handle sensitive issues with discretion in a multicultural environment. Experience in organizing and conducting training courses and workshops would be an advantage, as will be flexibility and adaptability in a range of PFM areas.

Preference will be given to candidates who have a minimum of ten years of practical experience in a senior or advisory position within a ministry of finance, treasury or a related budgetary institution; who have actively managed, or participated in, the delivery of TA programs in the PFM fields noted above; who can additionally show experience in managing and overseeing TA work and coordinating with donors; and who are familiar with the PFM challenges facing West AFRITAC member countries.

Other successful applicants, not selected for this position could join the FAD roster of experts from which individuals are recruited for particular assignments.
