Humanitarian Child Protection Project Manager Job, Current NGO Jobs In Kenya,

Role Purpose:

In the immediate aftermath of a disaster or conflict, and throughout the transition from emergency response to recovery and sustainable development, Save the Children’s presence in 120 countries facilitates the rapid delivery of evidence-based and innovative interventions that address the major life-saving and protection needs of the world’s most vulnerable populations. Save the Children’s Centre Humanitarian Technical Team (CHTT) provides technical quality support and strategic direction to programs in humanitarian settings and conducts research, capacity strengthening, and global representation to improve future responses.

This Humanitarian Child Protection Manager will oversee the implementation of efficient and effective systems across the Child Protection Team. This role is an exciting opportunity for a Project Manager with excellent organisational skills, award management expertise and experience in monitoring & evaluation and an interest in Humanitarian Child Protection to join the SCI Centre Humanitarian Child Protection Team (CHCPT). Responsibilities will include grant management, financial tracking, coordination of human resources, contractual services, and internal and donor reporting. The postholder will be line-managed by the Head of Humanitarian Child Protection and will work with all team members to support the organisation and tracking of key global child protection initiatives.

Specifically, the post holder will be accountable for (1) project management of global humanitarian child protection awards and internal collaborative projects; (2) coordination of CHCPT budgets, cost recovery and action points; (3) tracking of progress against the Save the Children Humanitarian Plan including funding and reach analysis, monitoring of global humanitarian child protection indicators and support to strengthen reporting systems.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly. The role holder will not be expected to deploy to a rapid onset humanitarian crisis, but travel might be expected in the course of the responsibilities.

The position will be part of the Centre Humanitarian Technical Team (CHTT) of the Centre Humanitarian Team, but the scope of this role may evolve to work with additional sector teams in the future.
