Pact is recruiting a Chief of Party (COP) for an upcoming five-year, USAID-funded vulnerable children and adolescents (VCA) program – Service Delivery for Vulnerable Children and Adolescents (SDVCA). SDCVA seeks to improve the resilience and health outcomes of vulnerable households in four provinces in Zambia with the highest HIV burdens while strengthening the Government of the Republic of Zambia’s (GRZ) social protection platform so that the GRZ eventually provides the majority of services to VCA. The program is intended to provide evidence-based services that will deliver measurable results for VCA and their caregivers in the following activities:
The COP will provide overall technical expertise (e.g., OVC/HIV/social welfare), operational, and financial leadership and oversight for the project and will serve as the primary liaison with USAID, the GRZ, Pact headquarters in DC (HQ), and relevant project stakeholders. The COP is responsible for achieving the project’s goals, objectives, and strategy, directing the entire project team, and managing the critical relationship with local and international partners and other key stakeholder sin coordination with partners, USAID and HQ. This position is contingent upon award.
