Myanmar: A DEPUTY COUNTRY DIRECTOR - SUPPORT : MYANMAR
Closing date: 2017-01-20Application : Apply for the job
Organization: Action Contre la Faim France
Closing date: 20 Jan 2017
Location:Myanmar based in Yangon
Length of contract: 12 months renewable, starting 19thDecember 2016.
Context of the position:
The Myanmar mission will be managing a portfolio of approximately EUR 8 million in 2017, spread across 12-14 separate donor contracts. It is a large mission of almost 600 staff, managing one of ACF's largest Nutrition/Mental Health & Care Practises projects in the world. The Support functions are composed of relatively well-capacitated national teams, many of whom have been in their positions for many years and have been absolutely critical in the smooth functioning of these large programs.
The Support Director will be in charge of at least three senior Heads of Department (Logistics, Finance and Human Resources). Two of those Heads of Department (HR and Finance) are currently national positions, while the Logistics position will be nationalized in May 2017.
The mission is reviewing this structure. The Support Director will be the lead in assessing and defining any new governance structures to improve internal controls.
The Support Director is a critical link in ensuring due diligence and a robust internal system to cope with new complex contracts, co-fundings, consortiums and funding mechanisms. One of the mission's major donors over the next 3-5 years will be switching to a payment-by-results framework which will require news ways of working and managing financial risk and compliance; while new Consortiums that ACF will lead with other International NGOs will require strong partnership oversight and systems managements.
Current mission donors include DfID, ECHO, EU, SIDA, SDC, CIAA, and potential private foundations such as Carrefour.
It s important to note that while this position will be managing the Logistics HoD, they will not be directly in charge of security management. At Capital level, the Support Director will be the N+1 of the Logistics HoD, but on security matters only, the Logistics HoD will report directly to the Country Director.
In general, there are regular but mostly mangeable operational setbacks due to safety and security issues. However as of October 2016 the security within Rakhine State, especially that of Norther Rakhine State has become increasingly tenuous. During field visits, the Support Director will be expected to follow strict security guidelines and work within a context that is highly charged. Otherwise in Yangon, the situation is calm and the living conditions comparable to most major world cities.
You will provide leadership and strategic oversight of support functions (Finance, HR and Logistics); while managing the mission s Internal Controls and Compliance, as well as ensuring the coordination of all activities linked to Risk Management.
More specifically, you will be in charge to:
- Provide Strategic Direction and Oversight of the Mission Internal Controls
- Ensure Management of Risk and Compliance
- Contribute to Program Development, PCM and Proposal Writing
- Liaise with Consortium Partners, NGOs, Authorities and Other Stakeholders, for Support, Contractual and Compliance-related Issues
- Manage the Support Team
We re looking for a strong "systems" person. A profile with wide-ranging experience in internal controls, managing a variety of support functions and with an acute understanding of the humanitarian sector from a risk and compliance perspective. In particular, a good candidate would be someone who:
Has led Finance, Logistics and/or HR departments at a senior, mission strategic level for at least 2 years.
Comes preferably from a finance, internal controls or operations background but has expanded and solid knowledge of other support and programmatic elements.
Is someone who has previously managed operations at the field level, for at least 1 year, in the role of a Support Manager or Field Coordinator/Area Manager.
Has previously been involved in risk management activities such as risk identification, evalution, mitigation and is able to transfer these skills otuside of their dedicated departments and apply them to other support and program activities.
Strikes a good balance between being procedures orientated while maintaining broader strategic vision and flexibility.
Is a proven problem-solver, able to troubleshoot, think on their feet and make decisions quickly based on the information at hand.
Has excellent negotiation and communication skills, able to mitigate internal conflict as the chief interlocutor between various departments.
Has a proven ability to work independently under pressure with tight deadlines
Is familiar with ACF's internal control systems, would be strongly preferred.
Would be willing to travel within Myanmar, which may often require vising and working in remote and low-resource environments.

Background to the Myanmar Legislature
The Constitution of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (the Constitution) came into force in 2008. Chapter 4 of the Constitution establishes the Myanmar Legislature or Myanmar Union Hluttaw (Pyidaungsu Hluttaw) comprising two Hluttaws that are generally equal in status:
The Pyithu Hluttaw (People's Assembly) formed with representatives elected on the basis of township as well as population and representatives being the Defence Services Personnel nominated by the Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Services. Section 109 provides that the Pyithu Hluttaw will have a maximum of 440 representatives with not more than 330 elected representatives and 110 nominated, as prescribed above; and the Amyotha Hluttaw (Nationalities Assembly) formed with representatives elected in equal numbers from Regions and States and representatives being the Defence Services Personnel nominated by the Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Services. Section 141 provides that the Amyotha Hluttaw will have a maximum of 224 representatives with 168 representatives elected in an equal number of 12 representatives from each Region or State inclusive of relevant Union territories and 1 representative from each Self-Administered Division or Self Administered Zone and 56 nominated, as prescribed above.
Following the Myanmar election held on 8 November 2015, newly elected MPs were sworn in to the Pyithu Hluttaw on Monday 1 February 2016, and to the Amyotha Hluttaw on Wednesday 3 February 2016.
Background to Parliament Strengthening Output of the UNDP Myanmar and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).
The Parliament Strengthening work started in April 2013. UNDP and the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU), has engaged with the Union Assembly of Myanmar to identify areas where the capacity of the Union Assembly can be built in order for it to effectively discharge its constitutional mandate. Based on a series of assessment missions and discussions with senior political leaders in both the Pyithu Hluttaw and the Amyotha Hluttaw, UNDP and the IPU has develop a parliamentary strengthening component which includes a long-term, multi-faceted approach to capacity building. It covers capacity building for the Parliamentarians, the Parliamentary Administration as well as for the Regional/ State Parliaments. This assignment mainly contributes to the capacity building for the parliamentary ICT and Information Management (IM) development.
ICT in Myanmar Hluttaw
Between mid-2013 to date, there has been a comprehensive development in the Myanmar Hluttaw aimed towards increasing the Administration s capacities to provide better (e-)services in support of parliamentary work through the establishment of the right ICT foundations, and the implementation of efficient and modern Information Management (IM) systems.
The link between ICT and IM and the delivery of services, is that ICT provides the enabling environment, through robust and reliable data storage-, communications-, and system hosting infrastructure, and a related set of operations and management processes. Modern IM makes intensive use of this environment e.g. for creating, storing, and managing specific data and records, which are created during parliamentary work throughout the day. Such data and records can be draft legislation (Bills), committee reports, daily Agenda and other business of the plenary documents, plenary minutes, voting records and much more. Without modern IM, it is a challenge to deliver parliamentary e-services, which allow daily information and documentation to be provided (through internal systems) to Members, Committees and parliamentary staff, for them to become more effective in their work, and the public (through parliamentary web communication tools) for it to become more engaged in parliamentary work.
While there has been a steady build-up of ICT and IM capacities within the Hluttaw, the actual delivery of e-services is still in its infancy. This is mainly due to the fact that everything had to be built from scratch, starting in 2013. Putting the foundations in place, building systems and capacities to manage processes takes time. The use of technologies on the work floor in the Hluttaw is something relatively new. At the same time managers and staff are keenly interested and eager to learn to adopt the new, more efficient and effective ways of conducting parliamentary work and deliver better services and information to assist MPs in their important work.
The ICT Specialist, recruited and placed by UNDP/IPU is a management support role to the Union Assembly, with the overall duties to provide ICT planning, systems implementation, and related ICT capacity building and advisory support to the Hluttaw management, through the ICT steering committee, and the Hluttaw ICT teams. The ICT Specialist will on a daily basis provide hands-on assistance and coaching/mentoring to the Hluttaw ICT teams in overseeing all ICT operations, and system development initiatives.
In support of developing the Hluttaw ICT teams and their management capacities, the ICT Specialist will provide strategic inputs and technical guidance to the ICT steering committee, and relevant Hluttaw managers in order for them to decide on the necessary ICT organizational structure, roles, responsibilities, processes, methodologies, standard operating procedures, etc. to a level that allows internal succession to independently manage ICT and IM decision making.

Closing date: 2017-01-31Application : Apply for the job
Organization: Premi re Urgence Internationale
Closing date: 31 Jan 2017
Premi re Urgence Internationale (PUI)is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organization. Our teams are committed to supporting civilians victims of marginalization and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. The association leads in average 190 projects by year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. PUI is providing assistance to around 5 million people in 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe and France.
Humanitarian situation and needs
Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) was ruled by a military junta for decades. The first general election in 20 years was held in 2010. This was hailed by the junta as an important step in the transition from military rule to a civilian democracy. A civilian government led by President Thein Sein was installed in March 2011. Despite this inauspicious start to Myanmar s new post-junta phase, a series of reforms in the months since the new government took up office has led to hopes that decades of international isolation could be coming to an end. Myanmar still remains one of the poorest country in the world, ranking 171 in the GDP per capita worldwide and 149 in UNDP human development index. Although there is a lack of reliable health data, it is commonly agreed that Myanmar has some of the worst health indicators in South-East Asia. The ethnic areas, that have been off-access for decades, are amongst the most vulnerable regions in Myanmar with a very low literacy rate resulting in various challenges such education, health services, livelihood, and food insecurity. The largest ethnic group is the Bamar people. Bamar dominance over Karen, Shan, Rakhine, Mon, Rohyinga, Chin, Kachin and other minorities has been the source of considerable ethnic tensions and has fuelled intermittent protests and separatist rebellions. Military offensives against insurgents have uprooted many thousands of civilians. Ceasefire deals signed in late 2011 and early 2012 with rebels of the Karen and Shan ethnic groups suggested a new determination to end the long-running conflicts, as did Chinese-brokered talks with Kachin rebels in February 2013.
Our action in the field
PUI has worked since 12 years with various communities in Myanmar to improve access to primary healthcare and reproductive health services, as well as to promote appropriate practices for health and hygiene in remote areas and among vulnerable groups (mother and children, population at risk or with HIV/AIDS). In close collaboration with local health authorities, PUI contributes to develop community health networks, reinforce their capacities and strengthen their integration within the governmental health system. Innovative strategies such as mHealth (mobile health), as well as cultural and conflict-sensitive approaches are fostered to leverage the health services provided, overcome barriers that limit access and stimulate demand for services. While focusing mainly on health programmes in Myanmar, PUI always looks to develop an integrated approach to address health and its determinants, including water and sanitation, food security and livelihoods, to meet the needs of the most vulnerable.
As part of our activities in Myanmar, we are looking for an Administrative Coordinator.
The Administrative and Financial Coordinator is accountable for the sound financial, accounting and budgetary management of the mission as well as the management of human resources and the administrative and legal records.
