Creative is seeking a Chief of Party (COP) for a proposed donor-funded project that seeks to address electoral reform in Liberia. The COP will be based in Monrovia, Liberia and will have overall management responsibility for the project. The project is expected to support the deepening of democracy in Liberia so that elected representatives can increasingly govern in the interest of their constituents by implementing interventions under three integrated strategic approaches: (1) Promoting increased accountable leadership of marginalized groups in the political process; (2) supporting the institutionalization of civic education; and (3) building capacity of the National Elections Committee and Civil Society Organizations to independently manage and oversee all stages of the electoral cycle.
This position reports to the Program Director in the Communities in Transition Division or their designee.
The Chief of Party will be responsible for the technical leadership and in-country management of the project. S/he will oversee the long-term expatriate and local staff and short-term experts in achieving project results. S/he will undertake regular assessments of the broader political environment within which the project operates to ensure flexibility and rapid re-prioritization of activities when necessary.
