Recruitment notice: Project Accountant – Plan International

About Plan International

Plan International is a global humanitarian and development organization dedicated to advancing children’s rights and equality for girls. We firmly believe in the inherent power and potential within every child, but recognize that this is often stifled by poverty, violence, exclusion, and discrimination, disproportionately affecting girls.

Partnering with children, young people, supporters, and fellow organizations, we strive to create a just world by addressing the root causes of the challenges faced by girls and vulnerable children. Our work spans from a child’s birth through to adulthood, ensuring their rights are protected, and equipping them to face crises and adversity. We drive impactful change at local, national, and global levels, leveraging our extensive reach, experience, and knowledge.

With over 85 years of experience, we’ve united with other passionate optimists to transform the lives of countless children across more than 80 countries.

Our mission is clear: we won’t stop until we achieve equality for all.

You will also review project outlines and amendments to purchase orders, ensuring accuracy and budget availability in line with UNHCR-approved plans. Additionally, you will monitor grant expenditure, alert management to irregularities, and recommend renegotiations as needed.

Your responsibilities extend to managing the general ledger and cash flow, ensuring timely processing of cash forecasts, and fulfilling UNHCR’s project funding requirements. You will also review UNHCR documents for compliance, addressing any discrepancies appropriately.
