SRHR Africa Trust (SAT)
SAT is a 30 year old NGO programing at the cutting edge of young peoples’ sexual and reproductive health and rights in Southern Africa. Their programming covers teenage contraception, HIV, gender-based violence, ending child marriage, meaningful youth participation, and gender equity. They manage programmes and offices in 4 countries in the region and also work with the SADC Secretariat and with the African Union Commission. The SAT Regional Office is located in Johannesburg.
SAT is inviting applications from suitably qualified individuals , or from companies who wish to second an individual as part of their CSI programming, for membership of its Finance, Audit & Risk Committee (FARCO), a sub-committee of SAT Board of Directors.
The FARCO is instrumental in the fulfillment of the Board’s oversight responsibilities and oversees:
- the integrity of the SAT’s financial reporting to stakeholders;
- the performance of the internal audit function;
- the implementation of financial policies and procedures;
- the independence and performance of SAT’s external auditors; and
- SAT’s adherence to principles of good governance and ethical business practices.
SAT strives to comply with King IV Good Governance measures as appropriate for the NGO sector.
Suitably qualified candidates must be Chartered Accountants and have experience in one or more of Enterprise Risk Management; Enterprise Audit Management, or Enterprise Financial Management. In addition, experience in these fields in the NGO arena and in NGOs is highly desired.
Candidates must be able to commit appropriate time to participate in FARCO deliberations. FARCO meets 4 times a year on a Saturday morning in Rosebank Johannesburg, for 4 hours (mix of virtual and face to face meetings).
All SAT directors and FARCO members are volunteers and do not receive remuneration. SAT will, however, meet all reasonable costs associated with attendance at FARCO meetings.
In addition to the FARCO membership, and in accordance with King IV, one member of FARCO will be asked to act as a Director on the SAT Board of Directors in addition to these FARCO duties. This will require approximately double the amount of time commitment. The SAT Board meets only twice a year in Johannesburg on a Saturday.
If you or your company is interested in serving on the SAT FARCO and/or on the SAT Board as a Director, please send us your CV (and Company profile where applicable). Applications should be submitted to the Financial Director, Richard Henson at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions close at 12:00 (Central Africa Time) on the 30th of October 2020.
