Working jointly with the Zimbabwe office of the UK Government Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO Zimbabwe), we wish to appoint a consultant to support the rollout of preparatory work for a financial sector development programme in Zimbabwe.

The Services will involve preparation of management solutions that will lay the foundation for a locally registered specialist vehicle through which FCDO Zimbabwe will be able to focus its future financial sector programming; managing an initial portfolio of projects in Zimbabwe that will enable the creation of momentum and conditions necessary for the establishment of FSD Zimbabwe.

Under this assignment, the Consultant will act as Zimbabwe Country Coordinator, being the focal point and key representative for FSD Africa in Zimbabwe. The Country Coordinator will lead the development of an impactful strategy and programme of work for the country. In addition, the Country Coordinator will support the establishment, registration and incubation of a new FSD entity in the country, until its
operations are handed over to the FSD CEO.

For more information and details on how to apply, please refer to the full terms of reference document. The consultant’s contract will be subject to FCDO Zimbabwe approval and will run for an initial 6-month period from 1 December 2020 to 31 May 2021 on a drawdown basis, approximately 5-10 days per month. Contracts may be renewed beyond this period, subject to satisfactory performance.

Proposals, which should not exceed 6 pages (excluding annexures), should be sent to bids@fsdafrica.org by 1200 EAT on 27 October 2020.
