  • Ensuring the accuracy and technical quality of all project deliverables, including periodic performance reports, financial and technical reports, training materials, and instructional materials
  • Supervising in-country project personnel, including senior technical, finance, and operations personnel
  • Engaging corporate support units (in country and at corporate headquarters) for technical and administrative support, as needed

Minimum qualifications:

  • Excellent team building and supervisory skills;
  • Fluency in written and spoken French and English.

Additional/preferred qualifications:

  • Technical and/or project management experience in the education sector in Sub-Saharan Africa, preferably in DRC or other Francophone African countries
  • Proven ability to work and manage activities in challenging environments, specifically locations with shifting security and uncertain political contexts
