Special Projects Associate Field Manager, Internal Audit Non-profit Jobs – GiveDirectly

Organisation: GiveDirectly
Duty Station: Kampala, Uganda
Reports to: Country Director
GiveDirectly is driving a re-evaluation of the norms underlying international philanthropy with a provocative model: we deliver donations directly to the extreme poor and let them decide what to do with them. This approach builds on two converging trends: the rapid spread of electronic last-mile payments solutions in emerging markets, and the large body of experimental evidence showing that direct transfers are as or more cost-effective at reducing poverty than traditional, top-down approaches. GiveDirectly’s field operations utilize state-of-the-art technologies and business processes to deliver unconditional cash transfers securely, efficiently, and transparently. Our unorthodox approach – allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose where they invest – has prompted debate in the popular press and among policy makers.

·         Identifying opportunities for risk mitigation and keeping the CD Informed of the required key process improvements.
·         Coaching FOs on challenges that come up in the field. Providing additional case-specific input as requested by FOs. Exercising judgment and escalating recurring issues or questions to CD to align on approach.
·         Shadowing staff in order to identify areas for improvement and professional development, particularly during staff training.
·         Developing daily work plans and leading the execution, as well as submitting and managing the expense requests of the field team incurred thereof.
·         Providing the lead in examining the quality of Field team data against set GD data quality standards and report any cases of inconsistency.
·         Reporting any identified cases of fraud and bribery by GD staff and or recipient(s).

Qualifications, Skills and Experience: 
·         The Special Projects Associate Field Manager, Internal Audit must hold a good and relevant Degree to the position. Work experience in Monitoring and Evaluation will be an added advantage.
·         Fluency in English and Lusoga with excellent communication skills.
·         Exceptional leadership ability with demonstrated success in motivating and developing junior staff.
