Job description

The IFS is seeking a Project Support Officer for the Centre for Tax Analysis in Developing Countries (TaxDev). This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding candidate to work with researchers and policymakers across four countries in Sub-Saharan Africa and internationally, and gain varied experience in project management, funder liaison, and international development.

About IFS

The IFS is Europe’s leading independent microeconomic research institute. Our goal is to promote effective economic and social policies by better understanding how policies affect individuals, families, businesses and the government’s finances. Researchers at IFS conduct high quality empirical research, which has gained a worldwide reputation for academic rigour. Our remit and expertise cover important topics such as education, health, public finances, retirement, consumer behaviour, overseas development, tax, inequality and poverty.  We communicate our findings widely, impacting upon the policy debate, the media and policymakers.

About the Centre for Tax Analysis in Developing Countries (TaxDev)

Building on 50 years of expertise in tax and social policy at IFS, the Centre for Tax Analysis in Developing Countries (TaxDev) – established in 2016 - has two major objectives:

  1. To support the increased use of evidence in the tax policymaking process through partnerships with governments which support them to use micro-data, build quantitative technical skills, and conduct applied modelling and analysis.
  2. To conduct high quality, policy-relevant theoretical and empirical research on taxation and social protection in low- and middle-income countries.

TaxDev is being delivered in collaboration with the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and works with Ministries of Finance and Revenue Authorities in Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda and Rwanda and with a network of academics, tax research institutes and international organisations. The programme is currently funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).


This role will involve working closely with TaxDev’s leadership and IFS’s Finance, Research Services, Communications, and Events Teams to ensure the smooth running of the programme. It is a varied, interesting position with the opportunity to gain experience of, and exposure to, a variety of aspects of TaxDev’s work, including our country programmes and our research activities, and to collaborate closely with a large network of IFS and ODI staff, external researchers and policymakers. The Project Support Officer will support the financial management of the TaxDev programme, working closely with our funder to meet reporting and compliance requirements, and support the management of TaxDev’s research fund. The Project Support Officer will also provide organisational and logistical support for international travel and events and facilitate communication flows within the TaxDev team and network of stakeholders and affiliated researchers.  

Job Description

Financial Management, Funder Liaison and Reporting

Work with Programme Director and the Research Services team to liaise with, and report to, project funders.

  • Assist with and facilitate regular financial management and forecasting activities.
  • Draft quarterly financial and narrative reports with support from colleagues, and provide support to the annual review process.
  • Support funder compliance activities, for example mapping suppliers, updating the risk register; ensuring Value for Money.
  • Maintain and update the TaxDev reporting framework (logframe) and support with monitoring and evaluation of project progress.
  • Attend project management meetings and liaise with the funder’s Project Manager.
  • Work with the Research Services Team and Associate Directors ensure that the TaxDev budget is well-integrated into the broader sector finances.

Management of the TaxDev Research Fund

The TaxDev research fund is a competitive funding mechanism open to IFS and ODI staff and affiliated researchers. The Project Support Officer will:

  • Support the management of the fund, including coordinating the calls for proposals, organising the submissions, and liaising with the Research Director and Scientific Committee.
  • Work with IFS’s research services team to develop new funding agreements and to establish projects on the IFS’s systems.
  • Coordinate with researchers to monitor project deliverables.

Communications and Events

  • Work with TaxDev researchers and the IFS and ODI Communications and Events teams to update the IFS and TaxDev websites, and support the organisation and coordination of seminars, research meetings, and policy and training events in the UK and internationally.
  • Support the organisation of project logistics, including organising flights, accommodation, logistics for partner visits to the UK, study tours for partners in Africa, dissemination events in partner countries, and international conferences (when the global health situation allows).

General Project Support

  • Assist with the accurate and timely invoicing of sub-contractors, suppliers and funders (triggering invoicing, handling and coding invoices etc).
  • Liaise with the Research Services Team and project partners and subcontractors on financial and contractual matters.
  • Support the development and implementation of systems, procedures and practices to optimise efficiency across the programme.
  • Support the organisation of shared team resources.
  • Provide other ad-hoc support to the programme as required.

Person Specification

Qualifications, Skills and Experience

  • A bachelors’ degree or equivalent qualification.
  • At least two years of experience in project/programme management, including experience of managing budgets and funder reporting.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • The ability to successfully build and consolidate close relationships with a variety of stakeholders, both in the UK and internationally.
  • The ability to work independently and as part of a team, and able to devise projects and plan and implement them, with limited guidance.
  • Excellent organisational skills, including the ability to prioritise work, work calmly under pressure, meet deadlines and handle a variety of work streams in parallel.
  • An excellent attention to detail, and good proof reading and editing skills.
  • An interest in international development, economics and public policy and a willingness to travel.
  • A strong commitment to intellectual rigour, objectivity and political neutrality. The IFS is committed to maintaining its reputation for independent and unbiased research on issues of public interest.


Under normal circumstances, this role is based at the IFS office in central London. Given the current circumstances, it is possible to conduct this role remotely, but with the expectation that it will be based in London once normal office life resumes, and in accordance with UK government guidance. The team is not currently travelling, but once international travel resumes, the Project Support Officer may be expected to travel occasionally to meet international partners and support the organisation of international events, but only after consultation and once the COVID-19-related health and security risks have been assessed and mitigated.

Contract Type

This position is a 2-year fixed-term contract until November 2022, with the possibility of extension, contingent on funding.

IFS Commitment to Diversity

We aim to foster a respectful and inclusive environment, in which people from all backgrounds feel welcome and valued. We offer a range of family friendly, inclusive employment policies, and flexible working arrangements wherever possible, so that staff can work in ways that suit their personal circumstances. Further details can be found on the IFS website.
