Job Title

Chief of Party, USAID/Uganda Urban Health Activity job at Save the Children - US

Job Description

Save the Children is seeking a Chief of Party (COP) for an anticipated five-year USAID/Uganda Urban Health Activity. The goal of this activity is to address poor quality of care, congested public health facilities, uncoordinated referral system, weak community structures, limited private sector capacity, and gaps in enabling environment resulting in poor health outcomes in Kampala, Mukono and Wakiso.

The COP will oversee the implementation of the entirety of this activity, be the primary point of contact for USAID, provide strategic technical vision, and ensure ethical and excellent management of the activity and its staff (including consortium members).

The COP will liaise with USAID, relevant Ugandan government officials, health and development donors, and other implementing partners of USAID/Uganda to cultivate open, productive, and collaborative relationships that support the implementation of this activity.

The COP will be expected to identify issues and risks related to program implementation in a timely manner, suggest appropriate program adjustments, and ensure that systems are in place to mitigate the risk of fraud, waste, and abuse. The position will be based in Kampala, Uganda, for the five-year period of performance with frequent travel required to other project sites. The position will report to Save the Children’s Director of Program Operations.

  • Establish compliance with USG regulations, procedures, and Save the Children guidelines.

  • Coordinate closely with the SC offices in administrative and HR matters, especially regarding operations and financial matters as they relate to the program.

  • Represent the Save the Children consortium with partners and key stakeholders, maintain positive relationships with USAID, relevant ministries, and the country office team.

  • Establish effective communication and coordination with personnel from the government to implement interventions and incorporate country-wide priorities.

  • Actively participate as a member of the Country Extended Senior Management Team (ESMT), contributing to country strategic plans.

  • Create and sustain a work environment of mutual respect where the project team strives to achieve excellence.

  • Incorporate SC’s vision and values and full adherence to Code of Conduct principles.
