Plan International Nilinde Project Head of Operations Job in Nairobi
Plan International is an independent development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls.
We believe in the power and potential of every child. But this is often suppressed by poverty, violence, exclusion and discrimination. And it is girls who are most affected.
Support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC) for Nairobi and Coast Counties of Kenya is a USAID-funded $41 million Cooperative Agreement awarded to a consortium led by Plan International.
Known locally as the Nilinde Project, this five-year initiative aims to improve the welfare and protection of the most vulnerable households affected by HIV/AIDS by reducing economic vulnerability and empowering parents to make investments that will improve the health and well-being of OVC.
We are inviting applications for the following position in Nilinde Project:
Head of Operations – Nilinde, Nairobi
The Head of Operations will support the Chief of Party (CoP) in overseeing the development, design and implementation of program activities and be specifically responsible for all operations activities on the project.
S/he ensures that the project implementation is in accordance with USAID rules and regulations.
S/he supports the CoP in ensuring quality in the management of Nilinde including but not limited to Grants Management, Compliance, Administration, Finance, and Logistics.
S/he will be responsible for ensuring that the services in these areas are delivered efficiently and effectively in support of the Nilinde project; providing accurate and timely operational information for quality management implementation; ensuring that operating practices in the Nairobi and Project Field Office(s) are consistent with Plan International agency-wide operating policies and with donor requirements; planning, directing and controlling activities in support of the overall office and Nilinde program operations; and mentoring national other staff to enable them to eventually assume higher responsibility for operations.
