In close collaboration with the Country Director (CD), the DCD’s prime objectives are to provide leadership and management of the strategic programming, overseeing the strengthening of SI’s program development, quality and accountability. The DCD ensures the internal coherence between program activities and is responsible for ensuring that programs are driven by needs, based on evidence, adaptable to contextual changes and conflict sensitive, monitored closely and resourced appropriately.
The DCD is part of SI Senior Management Team, the head of office of the program coordination office in Cox’s Bazaar, and has direct line-management of the Technical Coordinators (WaSH, FSL/DRR and MEAL), Grant Manager.
This position has an extreme potential in terms of leading the development and impact creation for a relatively wide portfolio of activities, which has a strong principled program positioning in the context where SI operates. The opportunity to keep developing the mission programming towards increased sustainability, innovation and inclusion oriented approaches make the role fascinating and very challenging. At the same time, the continuously changing context and heavy workload as the mission stabilizes present challenges to be addressed in practical and result-oriented ways.
In this sense, we are looking for a strong leader and manager, experienced and highly proficient in program management, innovative solution-finding, strategical analysis and external coordination/representation.
Support the operationalization of clear IM and MEAL systems throughout the mission.
