Médecins Sans Frontières is an international independent medical-humanitarian organization, which offers assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters and to victims of armed conflict, without discrimination and irrespective of race, religion, creed or political affiliation.


MSF is a civil society initiative that brings together individuals committed to the assistance of other human beings in crisis. As such MSF is by choice an association. Each individual working with MSF does it out of conviction and is ready to uphold the values and principles of MSF.


The MSF movement is built around five operational directorates supported by MSF’s 21 sections, 24 associations and other offices together worldwide. MSF OCBA is one of those directorates. The operations are implemented by field teams and the mission coordination teams; together with the organizational units based in Barcelona, Athens and decentralised in Nairobi, Dakar and Amman. The field operations are guided and supported by 5 Operational Cells, the Emergency Unit and other departments supporting operations, including the Finance Department.


The Mobile Support Technician (MST) Finance Learning will contribute to the sustainability of the program learning and development system by providing technical support to MSF missions for the implementation of local finance training. The role involves identifying and analysing training needs and providing innovative training solutions, building the skills of coordinators to support financial teams in projects, and contributing to defining strategic procedures that ensure finance minimum standards, focused on finance security and budget management. By fulfilling these responsibilities, the MST Finance Learning will contribute to ensure that finance staff in missions have the knowledge and skills necessary to perform their roles effectively and support MSF's mission. The MST Finance Learning will work closely with the Field Accountancy Team and receive support from the Learning Unit when needed.
