Job Title: Chief of Party – Livestock for Livelihoods Project

Duration: Full time fixed term contract  – up to May 2022

Salary: Competitive

Location: Based in either Addis Ababa, Kampala or Nairobi, with quarterly visits to project locations (South Omo, Ethiopia; Karamoja, Uganda)

Farm Africa is mid-way through delivering our £5m Livestock for Livelihoods (L4L) project in Uganda’s Karamoja sub-region and Ethiopia’s South Omo zone funded by the UK government (UK Aid).

Under this programme Farm Africa is working with local civil society, SMEs, cooperatives and farmer organisations to develop market systems that support livestock services and enterprises for 21,000 women, contributing to women’s economic empowerment, reduced poverty and improved nutrition of women and children.

The project is addressing market failures in animal health and breeding services to improve livestock productivity, building capacity and assets of herders, establishing trade and enterprise opportunities and improving household nutrition practices through behavioural change.

It will also demonstrate how nutrition interventions can build on women’s economic empowerment to contribute to both increased income and improved household nutrition.

The project is split in three independently managed component: the Ethiopia-project, the Uganda-project, and the overall knowledge and programme support component.

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced Chief of Party for the Livestock for Livelihoods project (CoP-L4L).

The CoP-L4L will be responsible for the overall sound management of the project, including maintaining excellent donor relationship and steering the knowledge management component.

Whilst responsibility for country-specific project implementation lies at country-level in the two sites, the CoP-L4L will be responsible for providing coordination and technical leadership to the country teams and will ensure that all cross-country delivery commitments are met, including synthesising and delivery of donor narrative and financial reports.
