International Partnership Development (IPD) Regional Coordinator

Location: Nairobi, Johannesburg, Dakar

Base salary: GB£36,035 per annum plus benefits

Contract type: Open Ended

Local terms and conditions of service apply

ActionAid has an ambitious strategy to double income from statutory/institutional donors over the next five years.

The International Partnership Development team within AA International will play a key role in supporting AA members/country programmes to plan for and fundraise from statutory donors and to manage contracts when won.

The Regional Coordinator posts will work with members to enhance their knowledge and capacity around statutory income and ensure that member need in this respect is communicated as appropriate throughout the AA federation.

Each Regional Coordinator will work with a selected number of members in Africa (and possibly Latin America) to enable in depth understanding and relationship building. Each regional coordinator will also specialize in procedures, rules and regulations around one major donor and will provide support throughout ActionAid on issues around this donor.

Desired Skills & Experience

The successful candidate should have a proven track record in fundraising from institutional donors and in managing the contractual and compliance issues involved with institutional donors.

Candidates with knowledge of EC, UN agencies or potentially USAID are particularly welcomed.

Candidates must also be able to show experience of training and knowledge transfer.

A key part of the role will be mentoring and training colleagues to access and manage institutional funding.

A function of the post is to ensure that African contexts are fully understood and incorporated into IPD’s planning and operations. Candidates must therefore have a good understanding of the African politics, development issues and the institutional donors operating in Africa.

Excellent English and financial skills are required for this role.

At a personal level, you must have a strong commitment to a human rights based approach to development, champion women’s rights and value working with diverse cultures and the poor and marginalised groups.

Your ability and willingness to travel internationally and work flexibly in virtual settings will be required. The post is managed from a distance. Thus candidates must be self starters able to
manage and plan workloads and communicate well and regularly with their line manager and other relevant ActionAid stakeholders.

Application Procedures:

Applications should be sent with your CV, motivation cover letter and two names of your nominated referees to: frcomm.jhb@actionaid.org by no later than 10th April 2012.

Please clearly indicate which position you are applying for.

Although all applications will be considered on their individual merit, suitably qualified women are especially encouraged to apply.

Due to technical issues the advert has had to be re-advertised. We invite all applicants who may have tried to apply in the previous round to please re-apply. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and look forward to receiving your application.
