International Programme Manager
Permanent role, 1.0 (FTE)
Save the Children New Zealand (SCNZ) is seeking an experienced International Programme Manager to join our central city Wellington based team.
About the role:
It’s an exciting time to join us! In 2020 SCNZ was one of the first agencies to secure a multi-year Negotiated Partnership with MFAT under the Partnering for Impact funding mechanism which provides multi-year funding for five countries across Asia-Pacific. The person appointed to this position will report to our International Programmes Director and will play a pivotable role working within a close-knit team to get our projects up and running. SCNZ is accredited to MFAT for Negotiated Partnership, the NGO Disaster Response Fund and is eligible to apply for START NETWORK, so there is plenty for the successful applicant to get stuck into!
We are looking for someone who:
- Has at least five years’ experience of managing development programmes in developing country contexts (particularly Asia-Pacific)
- Has at least two years’ experience of working in monitoring, evaluation, research and learning roles
- Knows and appreciates the value of working within a team and is a collaborative whiz who communicates effectively across teams of various external stakeholders to create and maintain successful relationships, thus ensuring the successful delivery of our projects.
- Has design and project management experience, particularly in working alongside a New Zealand Government agency.
- Is a tech-savvy self-starter with strong interpersonal and time management skills who can work autonomously in an organised and methodical way. The ability to multi-task and use problem solving skills, especially in relation to managing competing priorities will help ensure your success in the role.
- Is financially savvy with proven analytical and numeracy skills. The ability to identify, interpret, analyse and troubleshoot the financial tracking and reporting aspects of projects to ensure they are kept on track (with support from SCNZ’s finance team) would be a distinct advantage.
Applications should include a covering letter and resume and should be emailed to Leanne Brooks at email@example.com by close of business on Wednesday 10 February 2021. A copy of the position description is available on request.
