CARE is seeking an Assistant Country Director (ACD) - Program Support (PS). In the current context in South Sudan, procurement, logistics, administration and human resources are vital to the effective running of the CARE program. CARE is seeking a very senior, experienced manager with experience in managing program support functions in a complex sometimes insecure environment.
Program Support plays two interrelated roles in a Country Office (CO): Its primary role is to support the successful implementation of the CO Program by providing services, information and advice in an effective, efficient, proactive, responsive manner in line with CARE and donor requirements. Another key role is to ensure that the resources of the CO are managed and safeguarded optimally.
The role of the ACD-Program Support is to ensure that the systems (people, policies, processes and tools) that are necessary to play those roles in a given CO context exist and are fully operational. The ACD-PS leads and manages the PS team, collaborates/integrates with Program managers and staff, other internal stakeholders (finance, internal audit, Regional Management Unit (RMU)/headquarters) as well as external stakeholders (partner organizations, Host Government etc.). S/he is a full member of the CO Senior Management Team (SMT) and is expected to contribute substantially to CO management activities. The functional areas under the ACD-PS’s responsibility include: Human Resources, Information & Communication Technology, Procurement of Goods and Services, Transport management, Property Management and Facility Management.
The position requires advanced management skills, knowledge of accounting and budget management, a good understanding of Security and Safety principles, as well as the application of 'people-skills' that promote staff development through team-building, coaching, and mentoring.
As a member of the Strategic Management Team, s/he has a key role in the development of CO strategies and fully participates in strategic-level decision and policy making on matters of Program and PS.
The position reports to the Country Director. S/he collaborates closely with the ACD-Program and Program Quality and Fundraising Director, and serves as the line manager for the Supply Chain Coordinator, Senior Administration Officer, the HR Coordinator and the IT Manager.
