GAVI Chief of Party 82 views0 applications


The role

Save the Children is recruiting for an experienced Chief of Party who will be responsible for leading a program (2022-2025) funded by GAVI and implemented in consortium with International Rescue Committee (IRC), Acasus and Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI), under the leadership of Save the Children International (SCI).

Today, many children who do not receive any routine vaccine, “zero-dose children”, live in fragile and conflict settings, often outside of government reach. An estimated 1.3 million zero-dose children live in these settings in the Sahel region. Countries in this region targeted for these interventions include Burkina Faso, Cameroon, CAR, Chad, Mali, Niger and Nigeria. These countries are often at the epicentre of conflict, facing displacement across borders, chronic underdevelopment and poverty. While Gavi typically supports immunisation through government systems, many populations within these countries are beyond the reach of current government systems. A cross-border approach could therefore complement government efforts at reaching populations with immunisation services. Sustainably reaching missed communities and zero dose children in fragile and conflict settings requires an enhanced understanding of these settings, new approaches and partnerships, as well as a commitment to evaluation and learning.

QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE

  • Relevant university master degree in Public Health
  • A minimum of 10 years’ of demonstrated experience in program management and administration, including grants management and donor compliance, with a focus on vaccination and access to health services for children in conflict affected areas and fragile countries

  • A minimum of 2 years’ proven experience in managing large consortia
  • Knowledge of and proven experience of working in partnership with governments
  • Solid experience in working collaboratively through equal partnerships
  • Excellent written and spoken level of French and English
  • Proven excellent skills in program performance and quality monitoring and reporting.
  • Proven excellent skills in multistakeholder management, both internally and externally, with a strong ability to project strategic vision, adherence and buy-in.
  • Strong analytical and conceptual skills and the ability to think and plan strategically.
  • Ability to work with limited supervision.

Desirable:

  • Solid experience in remote management and implementation in complex and insecure environments
  • Strong skills in staff management, moderation, conflict resolution and capacity-building
  • Capacity and willingness to be extremely flexible and accommodating in difficult working circumstances.
  • Experience working on Nexus programming

Save the Children believes every child deserves a future. Around the world, we give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm.

We do whatever it takes for children – every day and in times of crisis – transforming their lives and the future we share.

The Save the Children Fund, commonly known as Save the Children, is an international non-governmental organization that promotes children's rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries.

It was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 in order to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.

In addition to the UK organisation, there are 29 other national Save the Children organisations who are members of Save the Children International, a global network of nonprofit organisations supporting local partners in over 120 countries around the world.

In 2015, we reached over 62 million children directly through our and our partners' work.

Save the Children has led global action on children’s rights for more than 90 years.

1919 Eglantyne Jebb established the Save the Children Fund to feed children facing starvation after the First World War

1924 the League of Nations adopted Eglantyne’s charter on children’s rights

1939–1945 During the Second World War, we worked to safeguard children directly affected by the war. We continue to do this in conflict-affected regions

1977 A number of Save the Children organisations formed an alliance to coordinate campaigning work to improve outcomes for the world’s children, sowing the seeds for Save the Children as a single global movement for children

1989 The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

194 countries have signed up to this legally binding convention

2004–2009 Save the Children’s largest humanitarian operation, in response to the Indian Ocean tsunami. Our tsunami response programme received funding of US$272 million, largely through generous donations

2009 Save the Children launched EVERY ONE, our largest ever global campaign, to prevent millions of mothers and young children from dying

2012 Our work once again touched the lives of over 125 million children worldwide and directly reached 45 million children.
