LOCATION: Juba with frequent travel to field sites.
START DATE: Immediate start preferred
CONTRACT: 24 months

We are seeking an experienced senior manager to support the Programme Director in leading and directing Tearfund’s Disaster Management (DMT) Programme in Southern Sudan.

This is an interesting and challenging time to be working in Southern Sudan as hopes and challenges for the country are high and the future inevitably uncertain. Do you have the skills, character and understanding to be able to take on the challenge of managing Tearfund’s operational work in this environment?

The programme is finalising its review of strategy for the coming 2 years and the successful post holder will be partially responsible for ensuring its successful implementation.

The DPD role is part of the Senior Management Team for the programme and will involve significant external representation of Tearfund.
Staff development and retention are increasingly important to Tearfund and so we are looking for strong leaders with proven organisational and people management skills but who can also demonstrate success in management, ideally in the relief and development sector.

The successful applicant will be educated to degree level with a good and proven understanding of current relief and development issues.
Excellent written and spoken English, good cross-cultural awareness and a genuine heart for the poor are essential for this role.
Applicants must be committed to Tearfund's Christian beliefs. All posts involve potential contact with children and the recruitment process will include specific checks related to child protection issues.

Please note:
We will be shortlisting this role as applications are sent in so please apply as soon as you are able.
This role is unaccompanied.
This role will be responsible for either DPD Programmes or DPD Operations and Support Functions, depending on experience. Both Job descriptions are featured for reference.
