Programme Assistant Fair Tax Monitor


About Us
Tax Justice Network-Africa (TJN-A) is a pan African network established in 2007 with 29 member organisations in 16 African countries. The vision of the network is a new Africa where tax justice prevails to contribute to an equitable, inclusive and sustainable development. The mission of the Network is to spearhead tax justice in Africa’s development by enabling citizens and institutions to promote equitable tax systems through policy influencing. The coordination of Network activities is delivered by a secretariat based in Nairobi, Kenya. Established in 2009, the TJN-A secretariat has grown steadily for the past 7 years. By 2016, TJN-A has a budget of over 2 million dollars and 18 staff members.
Objective of the position
Tax revenues in developing countries fall short of what realistically could be obtained when analysing their actual potential and capacity, both in terms of efficiency and progressiveness. As a result, inequality increases and as public goods are not sufficiently funded, the most fundamental human rights such as the right to food, health or education cannot be guaranteed.
Building on our existing work to promote tax justice and promote fair tax systems in developing countries, TJN-A in partnership with Oxfam developed a tool (currently called the Fair tax Monitor (FTM)) that will enable comparisons over time and between countries regarding the fairness of tax systems. The further development and refinement of the tool is an ongoing process. The tool can be used in advocacy initiatives to influence governments on their tax policies and practices as well as for educational purposes.
The Programme Assistant will coordinate the further development and refining of the tool, organising the work and play an important role in the further development and refinement of the methodology. The Programme Assistant will be supervised by the Policy-Lead Tax and Inequality. The tool will be further developed and refined in close cooperation with partner organisations based in Uganda, Mali, Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana, Egypt and Bangladesh.
About the role:
· Contribute to the further development and refinement of a tool that can serve as an instrument for evidence based advocacy;
· Coordinate the involvement of partner organisations in the further development and refinement of this tool;
· Assist to further streamline and refine the methodology for data gathering and include gender analysis;

· Produce meeting/workshop minutes;
· Manage contacts with relevant external experts on tax policy;
· Assist the development of intermediate products showcasing progress on the tool and other advocacy initiatives.
· Undertake Policy team administrative roles as they arise
About You:
The successful candidate will have:
· Have a relevant university degree, preferably in economics or public finance management;
