Policy and Strategic Planning Specialist

Project Description

Live and Learn Tonga (LLT) has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Policy and Strategic Planning Specialist. LLT is currently engaging several calls for proposals for potential projects in the WASH and food security space, and LTT has identified a need for improvement in the management of the office operations, including the overall management of the current projects. Additionally, support is needed for designing a localized strategic pathway for LLT and updating current policies.

The PCRV will work closely with project teams to understand current activities and areas of priorities for effective proposal writing. The PCRV will also support development of a localized strategic pathway for LLT and assist with policy review, strategic planning, and implementation. The goal of this assignment is to enable LLT to effectively manage the current projects and operation of the office, including conducting internal review of the annual financial statements, and allow LLT to train staff on proposal writing to assist in the future.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Tonga together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
