FHI 360 is currently recruiting for the position of Chief of Party (COP) for an anticipated USAID-funded civil society strengthening project in Cambodia that is expected to begin implementation in October 2019. The project will focus on expanding citizen participation and collective action to hold local governments accountable for public services, through increased access to information, analysis, dialogue, and the use of social accountability tools.
The COP will be responsible for providing overall vision, leadership and guidance for the project. S/he will service as the project’s main point of contact for USAID/Cambodia, international and local partners, and other program stakeholders. The COP will be responsible for overall project management and technical operations and ensure that project tasks are completed on time and the project objectives are successfully met. FHI 360 anticipates that the Chief of Party will be based in Phnom Penh but with project-funded travel to other parts of Cambodia. This position is contingent on project funding.
The ideal candidate will have experience working to develop and implement social accountability tools in Cambodia. S/he also will have experience overseeing programs that improve access to information on government decisions and processes, increase citizen participation to hold local governments accountable for public services, improve national dialogues to raise awareness of government accountability, and increase the use of new or existing technologies to enable citizens to hold government accountable.
