DEPUTY COUNTRY DIRECTOR FOR PROGRAMS

Job number: SRH03256
Location:Maiduguri
Contract Type: Short term contract
Duration of the mission: 1 Year
Desired start date: ASAP

ABOUT THE JOB
In close collaboration with the Country Director (CD), the DCD?s prime objectives are to provide leadership and management of the strategic programming, overseeing the strengthening of SI?s programme development, quality and accountability. The DCD ensures the internal coherence between program activities and is responsible for ensuring that programs are driven by needs, based on evidence, adaptable to contextual changes and conflict sensitive, monitored closely and resourced appropriately.
The DCD is part of SI Senior Management Team and has direct line-management of the Technical Coordinators (WaSH, Shelter and MEAL).
Under the supervision of the Country Director and with the support of headquarters teams, the Deputy Country Director for Programs is responsible for:
Strategic Direction: Collaborate with the CD to develop a program strategy and related processes consistent with the association?s policies and population?s needs.
Project Implementation: the DCD has to follow up programs team and monitor the activities to make sure they are implementing it on time. He is continuously in direct contact with the projects managers and the field teams.
Quality Follow-up: the DCD is in charge of ensuring and improving the quality of all activities with the support of the MEAL team and the technical department (Shelter / WASH / FSL).
Partnerships and representation: the mission is working with many partners such as ALIMA, PUI, ACTED, REACH, INTERSOS and TDH. The coordination of these actors must be closely monitored and improved. A regular participation in coordination meetings must also be ensured.
Reporting and proposal writing: the DCD, with the support of the Grants manager, is in charge of drafting reports to donors. S/he is the one responsible for the strategic direction of proposals.
Structuration: The mission is young and has grown very rapidly. As a result, the mission needs to be structured and strengthened to ensure a serene future. Considering the strategic position of the DCD, he/she has to ensure that all departments are communicating well and evolving together in the same direction.

The Main Challenges:
Security: the volatile security context can reduce the access to the areas of implementation, which can sometimes causes delays. Furthermore, the regular clashes between the different stakeholders of the conflict are causing important movements of population. Thus, the programs, and more globally the mission, should show a strong adaptation and reactivity capacity.
Contractors: SI?s activities are requiring strong technical skills and heavy machinery (borehole drillings). Thus, SI has to rely on contractors to conduct those works, and the DCD with the programs teams should closely monitored the contractors.
Lack of coordination: the several organizations active on the field are not coordinating enough, which has an impact on the implementation of the activities.
Management: the DCD has the direct management of four staffs: a grants manager, a WASH Coordinator, a Shelter advisor and a MEAL Coordinator. As functional manager of the program team at base level, the DCD should have regular exchanges with the Program managers, without overlapping the Field Coordinators.
Communication channels: In Maiduguri, both of the operational base and the coordination team are located. It will be important to ensure that communication schemes are in place and that there is no confusion between base and coordination (decision-making, roles and responsibilities).

YOUR PROFILE
Master's degree or equivalent in related sectors
Previous experiences in emergency contexts and high volatile environments

Ability to delegate, and at the same time, to follow up several projects in several areas.

Despite restriction (curfew & limitation of movement), the level of activities is good (Sport: Soccer, volleyball?and interactions with other INGO).
The multicultural environment allows for enriching exchanges and extensive discussions, as the atmosphere is very uplifting. The problematic aspect is that security procedures are quite restrictive (which is normal given the context) but it means that movement are limited and that knowledge of the city and the culture will be also very limited.
