Health Alliance International (HAI) is an independent 501 c (3) non-profit organization that also functions as a center for the University of Washington’s Department of Global Health. Because of its status as an independent non-profit organization, HAI receives funding directly from donors such as USAID, CDC, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and others. HAI staff are responsible for managing global field operations in 3 countries including Mozambique, Timor-Leste and Cote d’Ivoire. Field operations are staffed by approximately 145 HAI staff working in these countries. As an independent non-profit organization, HAI operates its own in-house accounting department, and grants management staff all of whom work both with, and independently from the University of Washington system. HAI is also required to contract with an outside audit firm to perform an A-133 audit as we receive federal funds for our activities.
HAI currently has an outstanding opportunity for a Financial Accounting Associate to support its Cote d’Ivoire Country Team. This individual will assist the Director of Finance to ensure the accuracy of financial information reported to donors and the efficient operations of field office accounting procedures and processes. The Financial Accounting Associate will coordinate with HQ and field office staff regarding financial reporting requirements and compliance issues. This position will collaborate on a daily basis with accounting staff in our field offices, including developing and delivering trainings, job aides and policy/procedure documents in French and English and ensure all required information is received by HQ Finance in a timely manner and according to the requirements of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
This position reports to the Director of Finance but exercises independent judgement and responsibility, seeking out authoritative guidance and coordinating with the Director of Finance as needed. The position requires excellent communication skills and a demonstrated capacity to work effectively in a cross-cultural environment. Bilingual proficiency in English-French is highly desirable. The position will require some international travel to Sub-Sahara Africa.
