ANNEX : TERMS OF REFRENCE

RECRUITMENT OF JUNIOR CONSULTANT

MIDDLE/BACK OFFICE OF

TRADE FINANCE DIVISION, FINANCIAL SECTOR DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT (PIFD)

 

  1. BACKGROUND
  • The Financial Sector Development Department (PIFD) of the African Development Bank

(AfDB) has primary responsibility for leading the implementation of the Bank Group’s

Financial Sector Development Strategy & Policy.

  • PIFD is fully responsible for the Bank’s sovereign and non-sovereign financial sector operations in Africa’s 54 Regional Member Countries (RMCs) including the provision of: equity, guarantees, lines of credit to financial intermediaries, loans to qualified corporates and technical assistance among others. One of the main divisions in PIFD is the Trade Finance Division, which is responsible for providing trade finance solutions to financial institutions and soft commodity corporates engaged in supporting regional and international trade in Africa.
  • The need to increase trade amongst RMCs and with the rest of the world is a key priority of the AfDB. Africa’s trade has tripled in volume over the past decade, and this has generated increased demand for trade finance that is not fully met by the available supply.
  • To help bridge the continent’s trade finance gap, the AfDB launched a Trade Finance Program (TFP) in February 2013. The TFP offers 3 complementary products to provide liquidity and risk mitigation support to financial institutions (FIs) and commodity corporates in Africa: (i) Trade Finance Line of Credit; (ii) Soft Commodity Finance Facility; and (iii) Risk Participation Agreement (RPA). The RPA is a portfolio approach of providing payment guarantees to international banks for their trade transactions with FIs in Africa. AfDB monitors the use of this instrument through a stand-alone bespoke database system while the other two products are managed through the Bank’s main SAP system.
  • There has been high demand for the TFP from both local financial institutions and international confirming banks. While the Trade Finance Division continues to build its human resource base, it has become necessary to recruit the services of a junior consultant to share the workload in the middle/back office.
  • In light of the above, the Bank is requesting expressions of interest from suitably qualified individuals to serve as a junior consultant in the middle/back office of the Trade Finance Division.
