FHI 360 seeks a Chief of Party (COP) for anticipated USAID civil society strengthening and peacebuilding programs in Mauritania. The projects will aim to build healthy civil societies to collaborate, communicate, network and jointly build stronger cultures of civic engagement, youth development and peace.
The Chief of Party (COP) will be the primary point of contact with USAID with regards to day‐to‐day activity implementation and management matters relating to the project. The Chief of Party will have overall responsibility for assuring that all assistance provided under the award is technically sound and appropriate for the needs to be addressed and for adequately managing and supervising the work of all field staff, long‐term staff, short‐term staff, consortium partners, and/or sub‐partners, as proposed.
Program activities may include: multi-stakeholder workshops on prioritization of needs and development of action plans, community dialogues, organizational capacity assessments, capacity building workshops, technical assistance, training on advocacy techniques and approaches, technical assistance on mobilizing organizational constituents, public gatherings to discuss issues of common concern, trainings on fundraising and own-source mobilization and support to civic education campaigns with a particular focus on youth and Gender Equity and Social Inclusion. The COP will oversee field staff, and will report to an FHI 360 Project Director based in Washington, DC.
