The Overseas Development Institute’s Budget Strengthening Initiative (BSI) is seeking applications for a resident advisor to work in the Revenue and Tax Policy Division of the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) in Monrovia, Liberia.
The role will involve developing partnerships and working effectively with ministers, analysts, and policymakers to strengthen the Revenue and Tax Policy Division’s (RTPD) capabilities to design and implement effective tax policies that support domestic resource mobilisation and the Government of Liberia’s (GoL) pro-poor policy agenda. The country advisor will be embedded in the MFDP, reporting directly to the Assistant Minister for Revenue and Tax Policy (AMR) and working alongside staff in the RTPD. The role combines technical assistance with on-the-job training of counterparts and collaborative working. Any support provided to the development of policy, strategy, procedures, or systems should be done in a consultative manner with those counterparts. Technical support and advice provided under BSI is provided to the partner government in confidence.
The length of the initial contract would be six months beginning early 2020, with a possible option to extend with agreement of the AMR and ODI. The post is based in Monrovia, Liberia. In addition to working with government counterparts and reporting to the AMR, the advisor will report to the BSI Country Programme Director.
