The Chief of Party will be responsible for implementing the Hamro Samman counter-trafficking program in Nepal. Hamro Samman is a five-year counter-trafficking in persons (CTIP) project supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID). The program seeks to strengthen federal, provincial, and local government efforts to combat TIP, improve civil society organization advocacy, and increase private sector partnerships to assist survivors and those at risk of being trafficked.
The Chief of Party is responsible for overall project management, supervision, administration, and implementation of the program. S/he will establish and maintain systems for project operations; ensure that all agreement deadlines are met and targets are achieved; coordinate and maintain working relationships with project stakeholders (including the Government of Nepal and private industry stakeholders, subgrantees, and/or subcontractors); lead collaborative initiatives with relevant government ministries and officials as well as private companies; and oversee the preparation and submission of technical and financial reports to USAID.
Successful candidates will have excellent management, communication and negotiation skills, demonstrating the ability to lead and build consensus, cooperation, and coalitions among individuals, civil society groups, private sector, and government officials with competing interests. Experience working to strengthen civil society and government systems is required. Specialization in at least two of the following is strongly preferred: counter trafficking in persons, labor rights, private sector partnerships, rule of law, advocacy, grant management, organizational capacity building, and/or sustainability. Significant USAID project management experience and leadership is highly desired.
