Key accountabilities include Leadership, Grants Management and Staff Management. The role is pivotal in the supervision of the Regional Grants Directors who provide field offices with the support they need to successfully implement donor-funded programs.

You will thrive working under pressure in a fast paced changing environment and will be able to liaise effectively with statutory donors and multiple stakeholders.
