Creative Associates International seeks a Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) for the USAID-funded Partnerships for Peace (P4P) Project based in West Africa. The DCOP will support the Chief of Party (COP) to both oversee the activity from a management perspective and to provide advice and guidance directly to regional organizations, national governments and civil society organizations. The DCOP should have strong managerial, administrative and writing skills and extensive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) experience. The DCOP is expected to have broad experience with international development that would be utilized to support achievement of P4P’s goals and objectives, as well as support for training and development of program staff. In addition, the DCOP should have subject matter expertise on both Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) theory and program implementation.
The five-year program partners and consults with stakeholders at the regional, national, and sub-national level across several West African countries, to develop a shared foundational understanding of counter violent extremism (CVE) in the region. The findings will improve institutional capacity of organizations and governments to implement more effective and coordinated CVE approaches.
