İlan Detayları

CARE Turkey is implementing projects through partners inside Syria to support vulnerable women, men, girls and boys affected by the ongoing civil war. We work both through partners and through direct delivery of humanitarian assistance across different parts of Syria. In addition, CARE Turkey supports livelihoods recovery and resilience programming across Syria. Most of our work is through cross border, remote-managed assistance modalities from neighboring countries, working closely with Syrian civil society organizations. Currently CARE’s core sectors in Syria are Food Security & Livelihoods (FSL), WASH and Protection.


Programming in Syria is high risk, with significant risk of fraud, corruption, disallowed costs, risk of underperformance, security risks, risks related to compliance with government regulations and donor compliance risks. CARE Turkey is therefore seeking for an audit and fraud specialist to complement CARE Turkey’s internal audit capacity. He/she will lead and manage investigations of all fraud and complaints cases at the country office.


Audit and compliance checks help the organization achieve its objectives by promoting accountability and better decision-making.  They provide reasonable assurance that resources are safeguarded, operations are cost-effectively managed, internal policies and procedures and external regulations are complied with, financial and operational information are reliable, and operational objectives are accomplished.    Investigations on the other hand, provide clarity on any fraud-related issues and concerns and its impact so that CO Management can come up with appropriate decisions and determine the areas where controls break down. 


The Audit and Compliance Coordinator is primarily responsible in leading and tracking internal audit and compliance engagements at the country office as part of the compliance and internal audit plan.  The tasks include leading internal and compliance audits from planning, execution, reporting and monitoring of implementation of activities to address risks noted in the audit reports. This position reports directly to the Director – Audit and Compliance
