Title: Programme Operations Coordinator – Somalia/Somaliland Country Office

Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We're changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.

Role Purpose: The Program Operations Coordinator will support the Country Office Operations team with the production, coordination and dissemination of quality and timely management information including tracking of operations related communication, monthly reports, context analysis etc. This will include working with Area offices in the coordination and dissemination of operations planning and reporting, ongoing response information, keeping track of requests from the Area Offices etc.

The Program Operations Coordinator will also act as a key focal point; working closely with the Area teams; to support and organize internal and external program visits. The post holder will work closely with colleagues across the Area Offices operations, Awards, Finance and PDQ teams.
