FHI 360 is currently recruiting for the position of Chief of Party, for an anticipated USAID-funded Leadership Activity in Burma. The project will provide leadership training centered around scholarships in the U.S. to improve technical skills (including but not limited to economic affairs), promote tolerance of diversity, and advance Burma’s self-reliance.
The COP will be responsible for providing vision, leadership, and guidance for the project. S/he will service as the project’s main point of contact for Government of Burma (GOB) institutions, USAID/Burma, and other stakeholders. The COP will be responsible for Burma-based project management and technical operations and ensure that project tasks are completed on time and the project objectives are successfully met. The ideal candidate will have experience working with the Burmese government and Burmese educational organizations and have deep experience overseeing capacity development activities as well as knowledge of best practices in participant training. S/he will also have the ability to forge and sustain constructive and inclusive relationships with local stakeholders. FHI 360 anticipates that the Chief of Party will be based in Yangon but with project-funded travel to other parts of Burma. This position is contingent on project funding. Local Nationals strongly encouraged to apply.
