The HALO Trust’s mission is: ‘To lead the effort to save lives and restore livelihoods for those affected by conflict”. HALO is known for its work to clear landmines but is increasingly involved in the disposal of other explosive ordnance and weapon control. When you join HALO you will become part of a team with a shared commitment to making a difference in some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. Established in Afghanistan in 1988, HALO now employs over 8,500 staff in 25 countries and territories.
Due to expansion we are seeking to recruit several Programme Officers within the countries where we operate. HALO Programme Officers (POs) are integral in all phases of projects from planning and securing funding, to team and partner coordination, to data gathering, analysis, reporting, and feeding back achievements and lessons learned. The primary roles of the PO are to manage donor contracts, to mentor and manage community outreach teams who conduct mine risk education and socio-economic surveys, and to coordinate the monitoring and evaluation efforts for all programme activities.
Key responsibilities include but may vary dependent upon HALO Programme and country:
- Researching and writing donor funding proposals.
- Management of donor funding grants and partner sub-grant agreements, ensuring compliance against performance and reporting requirements.
- Project-related monitoring and evaluation reporting, in line with donor and HALO requirements.
- Production of reports, including periodic updates to donors, HALO HQ and stakeholders.
- Beneficiary case studies, documenting the positive impact of HALO’s work.
- Media, communications and fundraising activities, commonly under the guidance of HALO HQ.
- Support to programme-level planning, management and improvement, and policy compliance.
- Engagement with local Humanitarian Actors and partners relevant to HALO’s operations in the Programme.
Working for HALO is hugely rewarding. It is also challenging, hard work and involves working and living in remote locations with sometimes very basic living conditions. You will be based overseas and, as an international employee you must be flexible and be willing to be posted to ANY of HALO's programmes. For further information please see our website at www.halotrust.org. You will work and live with other international staff and work with staff from various cultures and backgrounds, so you will need strong interpersonal skills.
