Director of Programme Development and Quality - Tanzania

Director of Programme Development and Quality
Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.
We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.
Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We're changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.
Role Purpose:
This is a challenging senior leadership role in a changing operational context as the Tanzania country programme grows its overall portfolio, expands its geographic footprint, and seeks to strengthen operational reliability, effectiveness and influence of its work. The position requires forging stronger partnerships with government and civil society actors, as well as strong donor engagement and lateral relationship building with other NGOs and UN bodies. The successful candidate is a principled, dedicated, experienced and highly motivated individual who will work with the senior management team to drive forward our country programme and our ambitions. The role will contribute to the on-going capacity building of organisational systems and processes, but also needs to lead the thematic ambition and integrate strategic priorities and best practices of Save the Children's global themes.
The role holder will be responsible for building a team of thematic experts and leading the development of high quality, participatory programmes for children. She/he will monitor the quality of interventions by enhancing the emerging monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning system. The post holder will also be responsible for the documentation of results and networking for purposes of learning and information exchange. The Programme Development and Quality department oversees technical support to programmes, accountability and learning, plays a leading role in donor engagement and fundraising and works closely with thematic technical advisors at regional and global levels. The aim is to design innovative programmes for all children that reach scale, through partnerships and advocacy in both humanitarian and development contexts in Tanzania. The position also requires overall coordination and demonstration of results for the global campaign to reach "Every Last Child."
