As Coordinator you will ensure that the processes of the ‘post-award’ phase run efficiently, liaising closely with the finance team and legal advisor (who is also one of the project officers). In effect this means from the moment project financing is secured your team takes over the management of the contracting, implementation and reporting processes. This includes supporting all aspects of project administration and management and for maintaining good contacts with both internal and external stakeholders.
