The Technical Coordinator will join an existing team supporting property tax reforms in the capital of Freetown and other municipalities in Sierra Leone (Sierra Leone Property Tax Reform Programme). In Freetown and Kenema City, the work involves guiding the sustainability of reforms that have already been implemented. The work also includes introducing similar reforms focused on fairness and accountability in other municipalities in Sierra Leone. 

The technical coordinator will be the in-country technical point person for projects and will:

  • be involved in property identification, valuation, property database creation, and IT tools used by the reform team.
