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.
The Programme Development and Quality Officer will work within the Programme Development and Quality (PDQ) Department, reporting to the Business Development Specialist to support the development of programmes and proposals in the Sudan Country Office. Supervised by the BDS the role will be responsible for ensuring that all proposal and pre-contracting documentation is completed in an accurate and timely manner and that donor portals are maintained, with documents uploaded as required.
This role will work closely with the colleagues across the country office but particularly with PDQ technical and MEAL colleagues and with other departments including Awards, Finance and Risk. The post covers both development and humanitarian response programming. In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.
The PDQ Officer must have excellent English written and verbal communication skills and the ability to work with others both within the country office and within the broader Save the Children movement
