Job Description

Chemonics seeks a Chief of Party for the anticipated USAID Targeting the Learning Crisis (TLC) Activity in Uganda. This five-year activity will seek to address the current educational crisis in Uganda by substantially increasing the literacy and numeracy skills of primary school students in grades P1-5 including out-of-school children (OVCs) and refugee populations. The Uganda TLC Activity will leverage the global evidence base to implement cost-effective, sustainable, and impactful programming, to close gaps in foundational literacy and numeracy skills through interventions such as targeted instruction approaches like teaching at the right level for P3-P5 pupils, remediation for P1-P2 pupils, and supporting the transition from pre-primary to primary. This position will be based in Kampala, Uganda. We are looking for individuals who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of people around the world.

  • Monitor and, where necessary, modify programmatic assistance to achieve results; ensure that relevant, productive, and complementary activities are implemented effectively

  • Supervise both technical and administrative staff, alongside partners involved in sub-agreements, throughout the project’s implementation

  • Ensure the activity meets high standards for performance and integrity including cost, schedule, and quality parameters and that comply with applicable regulations and Chemonics policies

  • Collaborate closely with the home office project support unit, ensuring consistent updates on the project’s progress

Qualifications and Competencies
