TEAM LEADER, SOMALIA SECURITY AND JUSTICE PROGRAM II 242 views0 applications


CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in more than 90 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from clean water to access to education; from microfinance to ensuring that everyone has nutritious food; from agriculture and climate change to disaster response. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because they have proven to be the best hope for creating lasting change in the world. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for over 70 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and fight with CARE.

The Team Leader has overall lead responsibility for technical strategy and effective management of the Peace and access to justice IP3 Implementation component; ensuring excellent relationships and proactive collaboration with other Implementation partners and subcontractors, as well as with UNOPS’ Technical Assistance & Partnership (TAP) partner and UNOPS MERL Supplier; ensuring teams engage effectively with evidence, research and learning emerging from the programme; and managing the effective deployment and performance of long-term and short-term staff.
