Job Description/Requirements

Who We Are:

Justice & Empowerment Initiatives (JEI) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Lagos and Port Harcourt, Nigeria, and Cotonou, Benin. We empower poor and marginalized individuals and communities to lead the changes that they would like to see in their own communities -- whether greater access to justice for the poor, pro-poor urban governance and policy, or community-led in-situ upgrading and development. Our work is community-driven, community-owned, and community sustained. Partner communities identify their needs and set priorities – e.g. addressing violence, strengthening land tenure, or building drainages. These priorities feed into all aspects of our work.

 

We work hand-in-hand with urban poor social movements and grassroots networks, bringing technical expertise in a variety of professions to inform, strengthen and support community-led efforts to solve justice and development problems. Our ultimate goal is to build the capacity of poor and marginalized individuals to set up sustainable community-level and inter-community structures to support and leverage their efforts and resources to bring about lasting change.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Ensure that JEI’s financial system runs properly in order to process financial information and generate accurate reports.
  • Ensure that internal controls are maintained at an acceptable level.
  • Manage and minimize risks affecting JEI’s assets.
  • Ensure compliance with JEI financial policies, procedures set out in this Manual, and any additional donor compliance requirements.
  • Ensure timely preparation of all internal and external financial reports.
  • Work with Co-Executive Directors on projects and general budgeting.
  • Be responsible for all aspects of cash management including:
  • Monitoring accounts receivables, processing staff payroll, collecting debt, and managing pre-payments.
  • Direct, mentor/coach, appraise and supervise the other finance staff.
  • Ensure that internal financial reports are generated accurately and disseminated in a timely manner.

Qualifications:

  • At least 3 years of experience in NGO/non-profit accounting and financial management. Please describe the required experience in a short cover letter. Candidates with more experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
  • HND and/or B.Sc. in accounting or other relevant fields.
  • Working familiarity with IFRS and other relevant international standards.
  • Professional certification is a significant plus.
  • Experience working with Quickbooks / other accounting software is a plus.
  • Supervision/management experience is a plus.
