Organisation: GiveDirectly
Duty Station: Iganga, Uganda
Reports to: Special Projects Associate Field Manager, Internal Audit
Duration: Short contract

About US:
GiveDirectly is driving a re-evaluation of the norms underlying international philanthropy with a provocative model: we deliver donations directly to the extreme poor and let them decide what to do with them. This approach builds on two converging trends: the rapid spread of electronic last-mile payments solutions in emerging markets, and the large body of experimental evidence showing that direct transfers are as or more cost-effective at reducing poverty than traditional, top-down approaches. GiveDirectly's field operations utilize state-of-the-art technologies and business processes to deliver unconditional cash transfers securely, efficiently, and transparently. Our unorthodox approach - allowing the poor, and not the donor, to choose where they invest - has prompted debate in the popular press and among policy makers.

  • Assess our field team's compliance with GD field processes and policies.
  • Identify and report key risks associated with GD’s program in the community.
  • Report any cases of fraud and bribery by GD staff and or recipient(s).
  • Examine local stakeholder’s assessment of GD's program within their community.

Qualifications, Skills and Experience: 
The GiveDirectly Field Officer will play a critical day-to-day role in delivering GiveDirectly's gold-standard cash transfer product to donors and recipients. For that reason, the suitable candidate for this position will:
  • Possess a degree in a relevant field.
  • Possess previous working experience in the field with preference to disadvantaged communities (2 years minimum).
  • Have ability to audit recipient surveys and associated processes.
