Street Child UK is a global, child-focussed INGO operating in twenty countries in Africa and South Asia. In Sierra Leone and Liberia, the very first countries the charity began working in, we principally deliver change through long-standing partnerships with SCoSL and SCoL. Our high-impact projects chase gains in education access and outcomes for the most marginalised children - through signature integrated education, child protection and livelihoods initiatives.
About the Role
The crux of this role is the provision of excellent technical, delivery and capacity development support to these two key national partners, SCoSL and SCoL.

The role is based in, and is expected to primarily focus on, Sierra Leone - with travel to Liberia as required (estimated 20%). There is flexibility for up to two months a year to be based in another remote location.
Impact and influence will be primarily driven through excellent peer-to-peer collaboration with the SCoSL & SCoL's Country Directors, senior staff, finance colleagues and programmes teams.
You will join a Street Child team in Sierra Leone consisting of a Country Representative, Programme Manager and Programme Learning Manager. In addition, this role will have matrix reporting lines into, and significant support from, Street Child’s Global Finance Team. Other key internal relationships will be with Street Child colleagues in the programmes teams.
We need someone with the technical knowledge and abilities to add real value. We need someone with the inter-personal skills, and patience, to drive outcomes though respectful, purposive peer-to-peer interaction with SCoSL and SCoL Country Directors and Senior Teams.
We also need someone with the practical financial management qualities to ensure excellent programme delivery, in particular of Street Child-UK contracted programmes. You are able to provide advisory support, build capacity in others, develop systems and are equally comfortable with getting involved in the detail of financial management delivery. You will have proven management and team working skills with experience of managing multi-donor programme grants and a strong knowledge of finance policy within non-governmental organisations.
