Spark MicroGrants believes in a world where everyone lives with dignity and determines their own positive future. For nearly ten years, Spark MicroGrants has been pioneering a new approach to international aid. We believe in local solutions and catalyzing rural villages facing poverty into action. br/> br/> At the heart of Spark’s model, the Facilitated Collective Action Process (FCAP), are ‘town-hall’ style weekly meetings, in which women and men plan together for their community’s future. Each village democratically elects a leadership committee, establishes a village savings account, and launches a project of their choice. Members receive weekly training on financial management and transparency, accountable leadership, village planning, and advocacy. Each village then receives US$8,000 in seed funds to turn project ideas into reality and receives an additional two years of management support. Over 260 villages have used the Spark process to collectively launch nearly 300 local impact projects, benefiting over 190,000 lives. br/> br/> In the next three years, we aim to prove the success of our approach and work with governments and civil society organizations around the world to change the conversation around and practice of how development is achieved - with communities in the driver’s seat of their own development. In order to achieve this, we need a strong, dedicated and experienced Human Resource Professional for the position of “HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER” to lead, manage, guide and administer all of the Human Resource (HR) functions for the Rwanda Country Office. The role will also provide day-to-day administration duties to support the efficient and effective operations of Spark MicroGrants in Rwanda. br/> Our team of 50+ people is spread across 4 countries in East Africa and the US, sharing a common vision and value system: above all we are community-driven: putting our communities’ needs at the forefront of all our work. .

The Field Finance Officer will play a key role in the implementation and monitoring of sustainable community projects. Critical to the role will be organizing training in assigned locations in line with budget constraints, tracking and monitoring grant usage in communities as well as ensuring Project activities and payments are in accordance with Spark policies. We are looking for exceptional candidates with a proven track record at managing field finances and administration of community grants and projects.
