International Development Consultant
Financial Management | Training & Capacity Building | Grant Management | Organisational Change & Development | Programme Management | Monitoring & Evaluation
I’ve worked to support a number of grassroots NGOs by providing operational and financial management capacity building which have contributed towards managing programme funding and delivering international development objectives, across a range of sectors. These pursuits have been dedicated towards realising a meaningful impact within the development sector and empowering local actors to drive these positive changes. My current aim within my consulting work is to continue supporting local NGOs through means of training, capacity development and knowledge-sharing.
I have over 10 years of experience within finance from both the private and international development sector and have provided remote and/or in-country support to local finance teams located within a range of countries including Sierra Leone, Kenya, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, India, Nepal, Peru, Guatemala, Tanzania, Uganda, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Senegal and Somalia. I've also worked on complexed institutional funded programmes including FCDO, EU and UN.
I am a certified project manager (PRINCE 2 CPD practitioner) with a Masters in International Development, a Bachelors in Economics and International Studies. I am FMD Pro certified (Financial Management for Development Professionals), a native English speaker, fluent in Spanish, Creole and have a working knowledge of French.
In my spare time, I’m working towards completion of my chartered management accounting qualification (CIMA) and CMI (Chartered Manager), also to further develop my French language ability.
It is rare that you come across a standout talent like Joselyn. Working with her over the past year on pro bono capacity building initiatives in West and Central Africa has been an absolute delight. She is one of the most dedicated professionals I have worked with and is always willing to provide extra help whenever you need it. Her expertise in financial management and organizational development is undeniable as well as her passion for supporting African grassroots organizations. Joselyn would be an asset to any organization.
