Project Overview and Role
Palladium is conducting a joint recruitment with the Australian Government for a Team Leader position on the Australia-Indonesia Partnership in Disaster Risk Management Program (AIP-DRM). This program will focus on improving Indonesia's ability to prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from rapid and slow onset disasters in Indonesia and strengthening cooperation between Australia and Indonesia on humanitarian issues in the Indo-Pacific region.
AIP-DRM builds on the long-term partnership between Indonesia and Australia in disaster risk management. It will identify, pursue and support opportunities for organisational reform and evidence based improvements to disaster risk management policies and practice. The Indonesian Disaster Management Authority (BNPB) will be the primary counterpart for AIP-DRM, however, it may also work with other national and sub-national government agencies, civil society organisations, think tanks, the private sector, and other donors. In recognition of Indonesia's growing capacity as a regional leader, it will develop an active partnership to share knowledge and operational experience between Australia and Indonesia to respond humanitarian crises in the region.
We are looking for a highly experienced and dynamic Team Leader who will be responsible for the overall leadership and management implementation of AIP-DRM. This person will be accountable for the day-to-day performance and the program outcomes.
The Team Leader acts as the central point of leadership for the program. They will be responsible for representing the program with a range of partners, government stakeholders and external organisations and people, including regularly reporting to DFAT and maintaining strong working relationships with other development programs.
Their responsibilities will include but are not limited to:
