    Your contribution

    Budgets:  You will support our projects to ensure the highest level of financial management by monitoring spending against annual operating and donor budget. You will help us develop and manage our departmental annual operating budget and you’ll assist in the development of new budgets for proposals.

    Billing: You will help us monitor our Accounts Receivables to ensure we are getting paid! You will also review all donor invoices and coordinate the review of Accounts Payable transactions. You will review sub-award invoices and manage payment trackers for reconciliation.

    Reporting & Analysis: You will conduct analysis of departmental financial status and trends, including periodic review of budget and targets, program balance sheets, donor funding trends, obligation analysis, etc. and develop financial management dashboards (burn rates, program income monitoring, etc.).


    Liaison: You will serve as the main liaison on financial issues between the MCS Department and other PSI departments to coordinate deliverable submission, audit implementation, and contract compliance.


    What are we looking for?

    The candidate we hire will embody PSI’s corporate values:

    • Measurement: You use hard evidence to make decisions and guide your work. You set clear goalposts in advance and explain clearly if you need to move them.
    • Pragmatism: You’ll strive to deliver the best possible result with the resources available. You won’t be paralyzed by a need to make things perfect. 
    • Honesty: You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings – it’s the only way you’ll learn and improve.
    • Collaboration: You’ll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters, and in our country offices – if you try to do it all yourself, you won’t succeed.
    • Trust: You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt
    • Commitment: You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin.
