The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) is a network of humanitarian organizations working on cash transfers programming (CTP). It is composed of more than 80 organizations and experts; representatives of the private sector, governments, UN agencies, NGOs and international financial and telecommunications institutions.

The CaLP mission is to radically increase the scale and quality of cash transfers as a modality of humanitarian assistance. CaLP encourages its’ members to collectively contribute to the global framework for action to move forward with the cash agenda at all levels. CaLP also provides support to it’s’ members, based on best practices. The work of the CaLP Secretariat is summarized in four strategic objectives:
1. Capacity building : it is a crucial element in the preparation for the implementation of CTP, and for the improvement of the scope and quality of CTP;
2. Knowledge management and research to develop evidence about CTP and make them easily accessible;
3. Coordination by providing specialized support to dedicated bodies;
4. Advocacy and influencing to ensure that policy decisions advance cash transfers and the global framework for action.

To ensure the roll-out of this strategy, CaLP works through different regional offices. The Regional team for West Africa is sitting in Dakar, Senegal, and is hosted by Action Against Hunger. As a hosted team within a consortium, CaLP works through different systems and engage in different set of procedures, which makes it a complex environment to work in. Flexibility is a necessary skill to navigate those ways of working, while putting compliance and accountability first.

With the development of activities and CaLP’s increasing membership, the regional team is expanding (from 3 staff members to 5 in the coming months). Communication and administrative / finance functions that were previously combined are now split. Thus, this advert aims at identifying a great profile, an experienced individual, to take over this newly created role and be in charge of the administrative, finance and accounting work, allowing a smooth roll-out of regional work.
