Offre d’emploi à ONG Plan International Cameroon : Internal Control Trainee
Location: Yaounde, CE, CM
Company: Plan International
Plan International is an independent non-profit development and humanitarian organization that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is girls who are most affected.
Working together with children, young people, our supporters and partners, we strive for a just world, tackling the root causes of the challenges facing girls and all vulnerable children.
We support children’s rights from birth until they reach adulthood. And we enable children to prepare for – and respond to – crises and adversity. We drive changes in practice and policy at local, national and global levels using our reach, experience and knowledge.
We have been building powerful partnerships for children for over 75 years, and are now active in more than 70 countries.
Plan International Cameroon has diversified and is growing its grants portfolio to meet up with the humanitarian crisis resulting from the social/security upheaval in the North West and South West regions which has led to a large number of internally displaced persons. Before this current crisis, there were flux of refugees from Nigeria because of Boko Haram insurgency as well as refugees from Central African Republic resulting from the civil war. Furthermore the geographical spread of Plan International Cameroon activities makes it very challenging for the two staff to adequately cover all its ongoing humanitarian and development operations regularly and satisfactorily.
In order to meet up with these emergencies, Plan has acquired grants from various donors such as UN agencies which have short lifespans (3 to 6 months). Subsequently funding are based on satisfactory performance of previous funds granted for project implementation. This requires permanent programmatic and financial controls, timely and accurate reporting to ensure that donors and beneficiaries expectations are met in accordance with the provisions of the donors’ agreement.

There are 72 grants needing attention in FY19 in addition to other responsibilities such as trainings, risk management, suppliers’ lists/assets verifications and various departmental controls (Program, Finance, Sponsorship, Administration, HR, security, child safeguarding, gender and the PUs).
