The Regional Director (RD) role is a new one in Self Help Africa and the wider Gorta Group (Self Help Africa, TruTrade, Partner Africa).
As part of the organisation’s global management team, you will be responsible for leading and delivering organisation growth and impact. You'll lead the organisation in East and Horn of Africa, and will be expected to scale up our operations in the region, and be the key representative with external stakeholders.
The RD will have the skills to adapt to Self Help Africa's programme requirements across humanitarian, development and private sector initiatives.
Working closely with the Programmes team, you'll ensure: that we offer value for money; that our work is making an impact; and that we’re submitting high quality proposals and reports in order to win and retain contracts.
You will expand and develop partnerships with private sector companies, funders and institutions that ultimately benefit smallholder farmers and traders in the region.
The RD will embrace and lead innovation and be results focused with a keen interest in technology as an agent for change. You will coordinate new initiatives in agri-business and digital development and will be a driver for innovation for the Gorta Group across all our work.
You will have proven leadership skills and the necessary qualities to enable you to lead the region living the values of the organisation on a daily basis.
The RD role requires both oversight of the Gorta Group's work in the region, as well as close attention to operations.
