Where to Apply

As I-DEV continues to grow globally, we are seeking a highly experienced Global Office Manager to help us design, develop and execute processes, strategies and approaches for managing all of our administrative, HR, and tax requirements.  The ideal candidate will be an office and administrative process “ninja/guru” with significant previous experience managing office administration (ideally for an international organization), developing and executing office and company-wide processes, and be very organized and proactive (“Type A”).  The Global Office Manager will be in charge of managing the local Office Managers in Kenya and Peru and will work closely with I-DEV’s senior management on process development, financial, budgetary, and organization-wide performance reports and reviews.

•       Management and oversight of all administrative, HR, and operational processes across I-DEV globally, including managing local Office Managers in I-DEV’s Peru and Kenya offices
•       Initial ~6 months will focus significantly on designing, developing and implementing organization-wide processes, including working closely with I-DEV Senior Management to establish best practices in corporate administration, tax/legal and human resources processes, and corporate management and administrative technology
•       On-going monthly responsibilities will include managing corporate budgets and funds allocations across offices, payroll processing, tax and accounting management (using Quickbooks or other similar program), corporate performance reporting to Senior Management (e.g. Running Harvest, our time tracker and related project management reports), ensuring tax, HR and other administrative compliance across all offices, etc.
•       Support training and onboarding of new employees by playing key logistics roles in recruiting, interviewing, orienting, and training employees- as well as managing on-boarding process
•       Conduct monthly accounting and bookkeeping, manage billing processing, and maintain annual budgets and financial reports in conjunction with I-DEV Senior Partners and Managing Director
