Project Manager – Child Protection in Emergencies Professional Development Programme

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 East and Southern Africa Regional Project Manager – Child Protection in Emergencies Professional Development Programme will work to protect children in armed conflict through the adaptation, rollout & delivery of the East and Southern Africa Child Protection in Emergencies Professional Development Programme (ESA CPiE PDP).

Building on the successful capacity building model developed by Save the Children and now established in the Asia Pacific region, the ESA CPiE PDP will raise national & regional CPiE response capacity. Using the results of a regional CPiE Capacity Gap Analysis and the CPiE Mapping & Market Analysis data, a comprehensive CPiE capacity building initiative will be designed to meet the priority needs of organisations and individuals responding on the ground.

Key activities will include working with other SCI stakeholders to identify an appropriate sustainable business model for the programme in the region, adapting existing content to the ESA context, recruiting a regional facilitation team, the design & rollout of a six-month blended learning programme with explicit linkages to the global CPiE PDP capacity building portfolio as well as any relevant regional initiatives.

The ESA CPiE PDP constitutes a strategic investment in building the capacity necessary to deliver on Save the Children's Protecting Children in Conflict Centenary Commitment in the Middle East Region.
