The strategic adviser will support the RSSB Director General (DG) to develop and drive the design and implementation of RSSB’s ambitious reform agenda in the investment and social protection space.
The successful candidate will provide advice and practical assistance to the RSSB senior leadership team on how to strengthen the investment side of the business and the overall system of Social Security administration to become more efficient and effective. The adviser will be expected to support and shape RSSB’s strategy of how the organization can maximize its impact on inclusive financial sector development and effective funding of the real economy more broadly. The adviser will be expected to liaise with the private sector and work alongside senior government officials in Rwanda, international partners and DFID. The post holder will also be responsible for identifying opportunities for the delivery of short-term technical assistance to support the implementation of the overarching reform plan of the RSSB.
The Adviser will be based full time at RSSB, reporting to the Director General, with frequent contact with the Access to Finance Rwanda office. The role will be adaptable, depending on RSSB’s needs at the time, with priorities defined every six months with the DG. The likely division of time will be as follows:
Support in strengthening its investment policy and fund management for instance by
Ensuring Schemes’ sustainability
Widening Contributors base and improving compliance
Improving the effectiveness and efficiency of policy and Social Security administration in Rwanda
The individual will need to work with the DG in engaging a range of external stakeholders in this work, particularly the Ministry of Finance which is RSSB’s line Ministry.
The Adviser will also work with the DG to ensure that growing donor support is coordinated behind RSSB’s priorities and that wider reform plans are delivered.
The post holder will need to engage sensitively and diplomatically with relevant senior officials, Ministers and the private sector to develop an understanding of their needs, articulate and shape their demand and to provide high-quality and relevant technical advice.
This role is highly flexible and unstructured. We are looking for an individual who can work well with little structure, has excellent communication and influencing skills and has the ability to carve out a strategic role for themselves in supporting the DG.
Although a specific Social Security qualification is not a pre-requisite for this post, an ability to work with colleagues in RSSB to implement and/or monitor outputs from individual short-term missions will be critical.
1.5 year role with opportunity for renewal, with RSSB and AFR reserving the right in exceptional circumstances to review, and potentially cancel, the role at the end of year one.
The successful candidate will be based at the Rwanda Social Security Board Office in Kigali, Rwanda (with possible travel to other regions of Rwanda).
