Role overview

VSO aspires to take its work in Uganda to significantly greater scale than at present. It is already one of our larger programmes, but there is potential for it to grow, expanding significantly the numbers of primary actors we can support to achieve better development outcomes.

Getting to scale does not only involve significant efforts in business pursuit. It also involves assuring quality in implementation, ensuring we deliver effectively and efficiently even as our programmes grow.

We are looking for a leader with passion and energy to take forward this ambitious agenda.

The right person will be a natural networker and communicator, experienced at pre-positioning with donors and building relationships with potential consortium partners.

That may mean having courageous conversations and managing change such that we get the people and the systems we need to deliver change excellently with and for our primary actors.
