Current vacancies

Senior Communications Officer | Global Property Rights Index (Prindex), London | Closing date: 6 January 2020

Prindex is a growing global dataset measuring how secure people feel about their rights to the land and property on which they live and work. It is a resource for researchers, governments, entrepreneurs, and the global land rights movement to use to bring about the changes needed to create more secure, productive and dignified societies. The project not only makes the data available free of charge, but also provides rigorous analysis of the results and supports others to use it.

This aim of the Senior Communications Officer post is to increase the impact of the Prindex research and data through the coordination and delivery of public affairs and communications activities on global perceptions of land and property rights. This is an all-round communications role, responsible for communications strategy, planning and delivery. We have an ambitious vision for the project over the next six months and are seeking an experienced communications professional to bring this vision to life.

The current consultancy contract runs until June 2020, so we are keen to welcome a communications consultant into the team as soon as possible.

The deadline for applications is Monday 6 January, however we will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis and will close the position if a suitable candidate is found before this date.

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.

The deadline for applications is 12 January. Full details of the job and how to apply are on the BSI Website and ReliefWeb.
