WFP seeks candidates of the highest integrity and professionalism who share our humanitarian principles.

Selection of staff is made on a competitive basis, and we are committed to promoting diversity and gender balance.

Would you like to join WFP Sudan’s Programme team and enable the delivery of professional, client-focused programme services? Are you ready to partner with managers to deliver effective programme solutions that will change and save the lives of the most vulnerable people in Sudan? If yes, this opportunity is for you.

ABOUT WFP

The United Nations World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.  The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger in our lifetimes.  Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and children, can access the nutritious food they need.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE OF THE ASSIGNMENT

Sudan has experienced decades of deeply entrenched social inequalities, environmental vulnerability, armed conflict and violence, and poor governance. All this has resulted in protracted displacement, food insecurity and lack of basic social services.

Against this backdrop, WFP and UNICEF have received funding from KFW for joint programming (JP) to support communities across North, South and Central Darfur, focusing on promoting self-reliance, resilience, and social cohesion in targeted localities. This will entail an integrated approach to disaster preparedness, development of sustainable livelihood opportunities, access to basic social services and social protection provision – all geared towards resilience building and social cohesion.

 

JOB PURPOSE

Under the direct technical supervision of the Budget and Programme Officer and in close collaboration with the Programme Unit and Finance Unit, the Budget and Finance Officer will directly manage the day-to-day oversight of WFP’s funding mechanism for the joint WFP/UNICEF programme (JP) and will be responsible for all finance related functions in relation to Programme. This includes the preparation of project budget plans for the various activities and reviewing all payment requests. The Budget and Finance Officer will be tasked with managing the funds received from KFW, ensuring that a proper project budget plan is developed, and ensuring all funds are properly and fully utilized prior to their expiry date and uncertified financial reports are prepared in the timeline agreed with the donor.

  4. Review and provide comprehensive analysis on grant balances identifying surpluses and deficits, and suggest corrective measures, to support maximum fund utilization and facilitate decision-making.
  5. Prepare/submit monthly financial analysis and reports to managers to show usage of funds.
  6. Prepare uncertified financial reports in close coordination with programme and finance units.
  7. Support programme team on cross-functional trainings and support on field missions as needed.
