Finance Manager

Description du poste

Position: Finance Manager

Start date: ASAP

Reporting to: Director of Operations


PIVOT’s mission is to combine accessible and comprehensive health care services with rigorous scientific research to save lives and break cycles of poverty and disease.

As one of the ten poorest countries in the world with among the most under-resourced health systems, Madagascar suffers from an unjust burden of disease. PIVOT works in direct collaboration with the Madagascar Ministry of Health to enhance healthcare delivery at the community, health center and hospital levels. In addition to providing direct health care services, PIVOT engages in poverty alleviation initiatives, conducts monitoring and evaluation of health systems strengthening (HSS) activities, and supports research. The HSS efforts led by PIVOT aim to directly relieve unnecessary suffering and death among the population near Ranomafana National Park and to serve as a model for national scale up. The organization is partnered with and modeled after Boston-based NGO, Partners In Health, which implements similar projects in twelve countries.

Launched in January 2014, PIVOT now has a staff of more than 110 employees in the Ranomafana office (currently including seven expatriate staff members) and seven in the U.S. The leadership team is made up of 3 directors and an additional 10 managers. Ifanadiana district has one district hospital and 19 health centers of which PIVOT currently supports 4 and aims to support all 19 within the next 3-5 years. The annual operating budget is $3.5M including the research-granting arm of the organization. Ranomafana is an 11-hour drive from the capital, Tana, and 1.5 hours from Madagascar’s forth-largest city, Fianarantsoa. PIVOT’s office operates in French with the local employees speaking both French and Malagasy.
