It’s an exciting time to be part of Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI) in Africa! Habitat has recently centered its operations for Africa in Nairobi as part of its Global Impact 2025 initiative. This is a dramatic change initiative aimed at tripling our scale, impact and funding by 2025. As part of our rapidly growing regional team, you will be a critical member in helping Habitat realize that vision.
The Africa hub manages Habitat’s operations across the region, including Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Zambia, and Malawi. Nairobi provides access to some of the largest institutions and organizations shaping eastern Africa today. The Africa team plays a pivotal role in building Habitat’s brand in the market and helping elevate housing as a critical part of the solution to the complex challenges facing this region.
We are looking for candidates who are driven, resourceful and want desperately to help as many families as possible build strength and stability through housing. We want people who are uncompromisingly committed to Habitat for Humanity’s vision and core values of courage (to do what’s right), accountability (to take personal responsibility for the mission and our actions) and humility (to remember that we are part of something bigger than ourselves). Together, we will achieve a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
About The Role
This is anticipated to be a two-year role. The Manager of Program Effectiveness reports directly to the Sr. Director, Africa Hub and cross-functionally to the Sr. Director, International Operations. The manager will contribute to the overall strategic direction for Africa. As a member of the regional leadership team the manager will contribute to the installation of the regional hub ensuring that the hub is well-positioned to deliver quality programming that is accountable to the communities that we serve. The manager will also contribute to business development efforts by supporting the development of proposals. A key component of this proposal development support is to facilitate program design processes in accordance with Habitat programmatic guidance.
The Manager of Program Effectiveness will also help ensure quality and accountability to the communities that we serve in our programming by championing the development of MEAL capacity in the hub and ensuring MEAL is built into programs. The Manager of Program Effectiveness will supervise the Sr. MEAL Specialist and support that person as they implement the MEAL strategy for the region. The Manager of Program Effectiveness and Sr. MEAL Specialist will work collaboratively to build out MEAL systems for the hub.
As part of our efforts to deliver quality programs the Manager of Program Effectiveness will also provide technical research support in the region. Habitat seeks to undertake programs that conduct meaningful analysis of the housing ecosystems we operate in, and this will require strong research. We also wish to ensure that our programs are driven by evidence and responsive to evidence and the Manger of Program Effectiveness will help generate, capture, and curate that evidence. Habitat intends to capture both the intended and unintended effects of our programs and research will be required for us to establish this.
