Africa Programme Manager

Full time – £29,000-£31,000 depending on experience

We are seeking a strategic thinker and programme implementer to play a key role in our work to support livelihood development projects in Malawi, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Uganda, and Zambia.

In the main, our projects provide people with vocational training opportunities which will equip them practical trade skills and knowledge of how to run their own businesses and maintain a healthy lifestyle. As part of our current strategy, we have broadened support to address issues and challenges in communities where our trainees live. This has included supporting WASH interventions and community awareness on issues such as FGM and early marriage.

We are seeking someone with a strong team player ethos, a ‘can do’ approach, and who will contribute to a creative and supportive work environment. The successful candidate will have significant programme and project management experience, ideally including management of sizeable and multi-year institutional funded projects.

Working closely with our implementing partners, as well as our team in the UK, the Africa Programme Manager will bring to bear their measurable strategic and practical skills to ensure positive, sustainable impact through driving delivery on our key goals and objectives. With a passion for meaningful and sustainable development initiatives and interventions, the successful candidate will have significant experience of working remotely with overseas partners, maintaining productive working relationships which enable effective management, delivery and monitoring of our projects. They will also be committed to being current on relevant sector thinking and good practice and will be motivated to invest in professional growth.

The role will require significant international travel (estimated 6-10 weeks per year), so the successful candidate will need to be willing to travel.
