Save the Children has been engaged in the livelihoods and food security sector in Somalia and Somaliland on and off for many years.

The Livelihood and Food Security Technical Manager will provide overall technical management and support to all livelihood and food security projects currently being implemented by Save the Children programme in Puntland and Central South Somalia (CSS). Save the Children is intending to expand its interventions within the sectors in the stated parts of Somalia and Somaliland.

Therefore, the manager will play a pivotal role in promoting and disseminating good practices across projects, documenting and disseminating achievements and lessons learned of projects internally and amongst donors and other key players in Nairobi and elsewhere as applicable, and will seek to expand donors support through development of projects.

This will include leading in the development of a comprehensive but realistic thematic plan for SC’s work in livelihood and food security (LHFS) sector to cover the period up to the target date for the programme to come under Save the Children International Integral to posting is the ability to work successfully with field teams to cultivate their capacity and motivation, thereby ensuring field based responsibility achieves its objectives successfully
