This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional candidate to join the Finance team of International Alert in Nigeria.

International Alert began operations in Nigeria in 2011 as a partner on security governance within the Nigeria Stability and Reconciliation Programme (NSRP). Since then we have launched a social cohesion programme in the Northeast while expanding our technical advisory in conflict and gender sensitivity to various governance and reform programmes.

In this position, you will be responsible for managing the finances and operations of the Nigeria programme, under the supervision of the Country Manager. You will oversee a range of accounting, administration, human resources, security management, and operations tasks to ensure that the Nigeria office runs smoothly and in compliance with Alert, donor and government regulations. You will provide capacity building support for colleagues and partner staff to ensure they have the relevant technical skills to implement our grants and contracts. You will liaise effectively with the finance team in London.

The successful candidate will be a Nigerian national, a qualified accountant with significant experience in a similar role within an INGO. S/he is expected to have skills across all the various areas of technical expertise related to the job (accounting, administration, HR, security and operations). S/he will be an excellent communicator who can work effectively with partners, colleagues and donors. S/he will be proactive in identifying obstacles and proposing solutions to the Country Manager, while constantly reviewing and updating organisational policies and systems to enhance our efficiency.
