Job: Country Project Manager - World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS)

About the Nutrition Programme:

Iron deficiency, anemia and nutritional disorders seriously affect the health and economic well-being of young people globally. These issues disproportionally affect the most vulnerable groups in societies and a larger proportion of girls and young women than men.

WAGGGS has formed a strategic partnership with Nutritional International, a Canadian non-governmental organisation (NGO), focused on nutrition interventions. This partnership aims to deliver a programme to improve the knowledge, attitudes and behaviour around nutrition among girls and young women. It aims to support them to positively influence their families and communities through non-formal education, local, national and global advocacy.

The ultimate aim is to create greater focus, attention and access to information on nutritional needs for our members globally. This pilot programme runs until October 2019 and will be delivered in partnership with our Member Organisations in Bangladesh, Madagascar, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.

About the Role:

This is an exciting opportunity to provide scope, develop a project plan and manage the implementation of the WAGGGS Nutrition Programme in Tanzania.

In this role, as part of the project management team, you will be responsible for the day-to-day budget management of the project and ensuring regular reporting.

About You:

As the successful candidate, you will lead on the development and delivery of the Nutrition Programme in one of the five countries, ensuring the programme is adapted to national context and the needs of the Member Organisation (MO).

You will be adept at working closely with MO leadership, leaders, Girl Guides and the WAGGGS Global Programmes Department.

What you can expect from us:
  • 31 days holiday allowance
  • 5% Generous Matched Pension Contribution
