The Basel Institute on Governance is an international and independent not-for-profit organisation working worldwide with the public and private sector to counter corruption and other financial crimes and to improve the quality of governance. Registered as a Swiss foundation with headquarters in Basel, the Institute operates globally and maintains field operations in Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America. The Basel Institute is an Associated Institute of the University of Basel.
Within the Basel Institute, the International Centre for Asset Recovery (ICAR) is a specialist centre dedicated to supporting affected countries in recovering stolen assets through a variety of capacity building and technical assistance initiatives, including but not exclusively strategic case advice, and by contributing to the international policy dialogue on standard setting in asset recovery. ICAR works in approximately 25 countries around the world each year, including with permanent in-country presence of experts and multi-year programs in six countries.
In view of the International Centre for Asset Recovery’s (ICAR) growing portfolio of country-specific, long-term technical assistance programmes, ICAR is looking for a Programme Support Officer with project management experience in the delivery of international development projects, and the delivery of practical interactive trainings. The Programme Support Officer will support the Head of Programmes to manage international ICAR programmes, and the Head of Training in the preparation, coordination, and delivery of ICAR trainings. ICAR is currently implementing technical assistance programmes in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, and Peru, amongst others. The ICAR training team provides training to law enforcement and criminal justice officers, and other relevant practitioners in those countries, in addition to delivering trainings at the request of other jurisdictions or international organisations.
The Programme Support Officer will contribute to ensuring that ICAR programmes and training activities are delivered in a coherent, structured, and impactful manner, as well as in line with ICAR’s Operational Strategy and requirements set forth by donors. It is envisaged that the Programme Support Officer will spend approximately 60% of their time supporting ICAR country programmes, and 40% supporting the delivery of ICAR trainings.
Whilst the post holder will report directly to the Head of Programmes, she/he will work closely with designated technical and other key project staff at headquarters as well as field offices. On matters related to financial, contract management, and HR aspects of the programmes, she/he will regularly interact with relevant HQ based administrative staff as designated by the Head of Operations.
We offer an interesting and rewarding working environment with a proactive, dynamic and international team spirit. The work is both routine and varied, and offers scope for initiative and innovation. The salary is competitive.
