The IOM is hiring a Resources Management Officer.

In the framework of the European Union (EU) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Joint Initiative for Migrant Protection and Reintegration in Africa (hereinafter JI), IOM is targeting 14 countries (Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal and The Gambia) to ensure the security, dignity and rights of migrants along their journey from Central and West Africa (WCA) to North Africa and Europe. This will be achieved through different types of interventions including protection and assistance to vulnerable and stranded migrants, assistance for voluntary return, support for sustainable reintegration in the communities of origin, the dissemination of accurate information on migration to migrants, potential migrants and communities, and the collection of data on migration flows. The Initiative will aim at strengthening the technical and material capacities of the authorities and organizations involved in these areas so that they can ultimately take over policies and programmes related to the protection and reintegration of migrants in the region, with a view to improving the governance of migration in the region.

Under the direct supervision of the Senior Regional Resource Management Officer (SRRMO), and in close coordination with JI Regional Coordination Unit (RCU), the successful candidate will be responsible for managing and monitoring the Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (EUTF) budget, accounts and financial reports of all the missions in the sub region that are managing JI projects, including the regional JI budget (so-called “top-up”).
