Tajikistan Country Manager, Saferworld

In Tajikistan, through our programming, Saferworld is enabling communities and civil society to respond more effectively to conflict and security issues. Our approach ensures we can find solutions to address the drivers of insecurity and conflict before they become violent and destabilising. Our programme combines project implementation at the community level, dialogue, capacity building, policy research, networking and advocacy, and working with institutions and civil society in the region.

The Country Manager will be responsible for further developing Saferworld’s Tajikistan country strategy and programme, overseeing the implementation of current and future activities and developing and managing relationships with local partners and with international and national actors in country.

The post-holder will also be responsible for overall team management and security, managing and monitoring programme delivery against objectives, managing and monitoring programme expenditure, fundraising and advocacy, as well as networking with and reporting to donors. Finally, the post holder will contribute to organisation-wide processes and discussions to advance Saferworld’s thematic priorities, methodological approaches and organisational development.

The successful candidate will have a minimum of 5 years’ experience at a senior management level including in programme development, strategic planning and managing staff in a multi-functional team. S/he will have excellent analytical skills and proficiency in English and Russian as well as experience of developing collaborative relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders.
