Chief of Party, Partnerships for Peace, Ghana

FHI 360 is currently recruiting for the position of Chief of Party (COP), for an anticipated USAID-funded Partnerships for Peace (P4P) Project. P4P will support West African efforts to improve their ability to counter violent extremism (VE). Activities will improve understanding of VE and knowledge of CVE approaches in West Africa; increase governmental and civil society leadership of CVE efforts; and improve regional coordination on CVE. The ideal candidate has strong experience managing complex international programs and is familiar with the civil society and regional organizational landscape of the region. S/he will be fluent in English or French with at least professional proficiency in the other. Knowledge of CVE research and experience implementing CVE activities is highly desirable.

West African nationals, especially those currently residing in Ghana, are especially encouraged to apply.

The COP will be responsible for providing overall vision, leadership and guidance for the project. S/he will be the primary point of contact for USAID and will be responsible for overall project management and technical operations. S/he will ensure that project tasks are completed on time and the project objectives are successfully met. FHI 360 anticipates that the Chief of Party will be based in Accra, Ghana but s/he must be willing to travel to other countries in the region as required.

The preferred candidate must have at least ten years of experience successfully managing complex international programs (implementation, logistics, budgeting, staffing), preferably funded by USAID. S/he will have demonstrated skills in effectively working, coordinating and negotiating with regional institutions and organizations, donors, other USAID projects, US embassies, local organizations and partners.
