IMF Job Offer: Deputy Division Chief, Public Financial Management Division 2, IMF Fiscal Affairs Department (Job Number: 1100288)


The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is seeking a senior public financial management (PFM) specialist to fill a Deputy Division Chief position in the PFM Division 2 ("M2") of the Fiscal Affairs Department at the IMF Headquarters in Washington, DC.
M2 is responsible for providing advice and technical assistance to IMF member countries and for undertaking policy research in and organizing conferences or seminars on a broad range of public financial management issues. The Division's activities cover countries from all income levels, in Asia and the Pacific, the Western Hemisphere, and non-English speaking Africa. Key areas of work include the development, in conjunction with member countries, of PFM reform strategies and their implementation; the underpinning legal and regulatory frameworks; budget classification, preparation (medium-term fiscal and expenditure frameworks) and approval; budget execution; accounting and fiscal reporting systems; cash and debt management (including treasury systems, control of commitments, and arrears); and internal audit. Recent work also included performance budgeting, accrual accounting, the PFM underpinnings of natural resource management and sovereign wealth funds, as well as budget institutions for fiscal consolidation.

The Deputy Division Chief will assist the Division Chief in managing all divisional activities, including running the division in his absence and supervising a multicultural group of staff, headquarters-based consultants, regional resident advisors, and technical assistance experts stationed in member countries. The selected candidates will also contribute to developing the Fiscal Affairs Department's strategic thinking in the areas of his/her expertise, lead complex technical assistance missions, and liaise with the World Bank and other agencies that provide support for public financial management reforms, as well as donors financing the Divisions' externally-financed projects. In addition, the selected candidates will cooperate with other divisions of the Fiscal Affairs Department and the Fund's other Departments.


The successful candidate should have extensive practical and managerial experience for at least 15 years within a ministry of finance, treasury, or comparable institution or consulting firm, familiarity with other regional and international organizations engaged in public financial management reforms, strong analytical skills, effective oral and written communications, excellent interpersonal skills, and ability to advise and guide divisional staff. Working knowledge of French, Portuguese, or Spanish would be desirable.

Applications should be submitted online at www.imf.org/jobs by making explicit reference to Job No. 1100288 by May 31, 2011.

How can we differentiate between pipeline jobs and the job position that are currently vacant and what is the maximum amount time(days, months or year) does it takes to fill in a Pipeline Job from the time of advertisement or from the closing date? I propose that IMF should include expected reporting DATE in all jobs adverts posted on the IMF jobs website
