ICAR programme in Kenya
ICAR has strong and established relationships across the anti-corruption chain in Kenya. ICAR’s cooperation with the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) dates back to 2005 and initially focused on providing fly-in, fly-out support to ensure the country’s compliance with UNCAC; deliver foundational training on asset recovery; and investigate a number of emblematic and complex international cases. The embedded expert model introduced by ICAR in 2014 has subsequently supported the EACC to drive sustained performance improvement in its investigative and international cooperation practices, and to tangibly improve its capacity to trace, freeze, and confiscate assets.
As part of the new UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO)-funded phase of our programme (November 2021–October 2024), ICAR will continue to provide targeted technical support to EACC (via our Coordinator Southern and Easter Africa / Senior Investigation Specialist) and embed a full-time Senior Asset Recovery Specialist at the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP). This work will build on the GIZ-funded project to support ODPP which ICAR implemented in 2020. During the one-year assignment, ICAR provided targeted case support and mentoring to ODPP prosecutors, and delivered training on asset recovery case analysis, financial investigation, restraint, confiscation and enforcement, and mutual legal assistance (MLA) aspects of casework. In due course, the Senior Asset Recovery Specialist will also be expected to support Kenya’s Asset Recovery Agency (ARA), albeit in a more targeted manner.
The focus of the Senior Asset Recovery Specialist’s activity will be on case analysis, case preparation and application with an emphasis on strengthening asset recovery, and case review for specific identified complex and serious cases within the Corruption Division of the Economic Crimes Department of the ODPP and ARA. The post holder will work in a team of three, supervised by the in-country Coordinator Southern and Easter Africa / Senior Investigation Specialist and supported by a Programme Manager. The team will be under the strategic oversight of the HQ-based ICAR Head of Programmes.
Key responsibilities include:
The salary will be commensurate to experience and responsibility. Additional allowances for field staff may apply, including health allowance, accommodation allowance and one home leave flight per 12-month period. The position is entitled to 25 days of paid leave per 12-month period and 5 days of paid home leave per 12-month period.
