  • Supporting the design, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of programs
  • Building relationships with the local community and stakeholders
  • Fostering opportunities for growth, in line with the needs of children and families.

Does this sound like you?

You're an enthusiastic and committed leader with demonstrated experience in managing a multidisciplinary high performing team. Your highly developed cultural awareness and sensitivity, partnered with excellent communication skills, will enable you to strengthen the capacity of our team to support children and families experiencing vulnerability. You're not afraid of a challenge and you constantly seek to grow and develop your team members.

This role requires:

  • Proven leadership skills, the ability to nurture a cohesive multidisciplinary team
  • Ability to develop, implement, monitor and evaluate programs

  • Ability to develop and drive new programs as well as continuous improvement
  • Current valid driver's licence

Working at Save the Children is more than just a job.
