AFAO – Accountant

Job Category: External
Job Type: Full Time
Job Location: Sydney

The Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO) is seeking applications for the position of Accountant for the Sustainability of HIV Services for Key Populations in Asia (SKPA) Program.

SKPA-2 is a three-year, USD$12.5m program funded by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria for the period 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2025. The program follows from and significantly extends the successful SKPA-1 program, which will be completed by June 30, 2022. AFAO is the Principal Recipient.

SKPA-2 aims to improve the sustainability of evidence-informed, prioritised HIV services for key populations in Bhutan, Mongolia, Philippines, and Sri Lanka. There are four program objectives:

  1. Accelerate financial sustainability
  2. Improve strategic information availability and use
  3. Promote programmatic sustainability
  4. Remove human rights and gender-related barriers to services.

SKPA-2 is led by a director who works for a consortium of partners to implement the program. The consortium includes both country and regional sub-recipients. The WHO and UNAIDS contribute as technical partners.

Comprehensive planning for SKPA-2 has already been undertaken and a detailed performance implementation plan has been developed. It is expected that following a brief orientation and familiarisation, the position holder will immediately participate in program implementation.

This position is responsible for providing effective accounting and financial support for the SKPA-2 program, including timely compliance with statutory and grant requirements.

The location for this position is in Sydney, Australia.  An attractive remuneration and benefits package will be negotiated based on skills and experience.
