Project Coordinator- DRSLPII at Save the Children

Project Coordinator- DRSLPII- Somali National Position

Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children’s lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We’re changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.

Role Purpose: To contribute to Save the Children’s capacity to meet its Drought Resilience and Sustainable Livelihoods Program (DRSLP). The Project Coordinator is overall responsible for the day-to-day implementation of DRSLP program implementation. The Project Coordinator will work closely with the Project Director, Area management and support staff (including finance, HR, Supplies Chain, and program) to ensure the day-to-day activities are implemented according to schedule, budget and required quality. The Project Coordinator reports directly to the Project Director. The Project Coordinator will assist the Project Director in outlining a strategic plan for the implementation of this program including identifying target areas/projects, methods of operation for effective programming and maximum results
