This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior Manager to build and lead the Rwanda Country team to deliver a diverse portfolio of partnerships along with programmatic and advocacy activities and make significant impact on the lives of vulnerable children in a fast-paced, forward-thinking organisation.
You will be comfortable managing a mixed portfolio of existing partnerships, allocating resources where necessary while you focus on cultivating new strategic relationships with key government, institutional, national and international stakeholders to advance the organisation’s work in country. You will provide sound advice to the Senior Management Team on programming opportunities, national and regional trends concerning the organisation’s prioritised areas and ensure overall quality of programme implementation in Rwanda. You will also ensure the highest standards of international NGO governance and compliances to INGO obligations in Rwanda. As well as building the capacity of your team, you will also represent the organisation at external meetings and events, sharing best practices.
You will have a high degree of leadership acumen, thriving in situations where you can think on your feet and work creatively with limited resources to achieve your goals. You will have a knowledge of result-based management and a willingness to foster new relationships to deliver the organisation’s 3-year Programme Strategy. Reporting directly to the Director of Programme Development (DoP) of the organisation you will be leading and managing a small team as well as leading the Safeguarding responsibilities of the country office in liaison with all partners.
As part of the Programmes Team, you will play a significant role in the growth and development of the charity’s invaluable work in East Africa, working closely with the DoP and Finance personnel to ensure the Rwanda office is united behind a common vision for the organisation. With the continuous growth of the organisation, there will be opportunities for career development such as overseeing regional country offices.
