Job Vacancy For Executive Assistant



DFID remains one of the largest bilateral donors in Ghana but we are in transition towards a smaller spending programme that focuses more on providing high-level advice in support of Ghana’s position as a Lower Middle Income Country. The UK Government will provide more than £125m of aid to Ghana each year for the next four years - through the bilateral programme managed directly by DFID Ghana, through programmes run from DFID in UK and through other UK Government Departments’ programmes.

The office in Accra currently has around twenty programmes covering education, health, social protection, gender, economic development, governance and accountability. We work with a range of different partners to deliver these programmes - including Government, non-government organisations, and private sector suppliers. We also work very closely with other development partners, including the World Bank, United Nations, International Monetary Fund, European Union and with other bilaterals. We work increasingly closely with other parts of the UK Government represented in Accra.
