About ITC

The International Trade Centre (ITC) is a joint agency of the United Nations and the World Trade Organization, focusing in particular on developing the export capabilities of small and medium-sized businesses in developing and transition economies. ITC is 100% "Aid for Trade", supporting trade that delivers inclusive and sustainable development results. ITC’s mandate covers all developing countries and transition economies with special emphasis on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Landlocked Developing Countries (LLDCs), Small Island Developing States (SIDs) Fragile States and Sub-Saharan Africa. ITC Headquarters is located in Geneva, Switzerland. ITC projects and programmes contribute to the global efforts to achieve UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development and the Aid for Trade agenda. ITC works at three levels:

  • Strengthening the integration of the business sector of developing countries and economies in transition into the global economy,
  • Improving the performance of trade and investment support institutions for the benefit of small and medium size enterprises (SMEs), and enhancing the abilities of trade support institutions to better support them,
  • Improving the international competitiveness of SMEs.

About the ReMIT Project:

The ITC - Revenue Mobilisation, Investment and Trade Programme (ReMIT) is a component in the framework of a larger DFID-funded Technical Assistance (TA) to support Pakistan to implement reforms that lock-in macroeconomic stability and improve conditions for high and sustained growth, mutual prosperity, job creation and poverty reduction. This programme will provide technical assistance worth £5 million over four years (2020-2024) aimed to support Revenue Mobilisation, Investment and Trade in Pakistan, thus contributing to sustainable and inclusive economic development in the country.

The ITC project aims to promote and enhance international trade competitiveness in Pakistan by enhancing the transparency of cross-border requirements, removing regulatory and procedural barriers, strengthening business capability to comply with trade formalities and standards, as well as by improving cross-border trade.

The Action will operate through three areas of intervention:

  • Pakistan National Export Strategy: Developing and supporting the implementation of Pakistan’s National Export Strategy (NES) elaborated through public and private dialogue;
  • Trade Policy: Improving market access opportunities for Pakistani businesses by implementing trade policy reforms and addressing trade barriers, and;
  • Trade Facilitation: Implementing trade facilitation reforms reflecting public-private consensus and improving business compliance with cross-border requirements.

The Action will target its technical assistance towards trade policymakers, trade-support institutions and businesses, with a special focus on women-led enterprises and their participation in international trade. The project will assist in addressing trade barriers faced by women-owned businesses in cross-border trade. For this, women businesses and associations will be key participants in capacity-building activities and consultations, mainstreaming their perspectives on trade barriers and including them in public-private dialogues to address them.

ITC seeks to hire a project assistant to support the project team in implementation of the programme in close cooperation with Geneva- based administrative team.

Main duties: The outputs expected from the ReMIT Project Assistant are:

  • Provide administrative support to the project
  • Provide support in effective coordination with Geneva based project management, the donor, project stakeholders and beneficiaries
  • Support in development of communication strategies
  • Assist in developing financial and technical reports
  • Maintain project financial, HR and administrative record
  • Prepare and present quotations, invoices and other financial vouchers for approval and maintain record
  • Assist in formatting documents and preparing reports
