On 14 March 2019, Tropical Cyclone Idai made landfall near Mozambique Beira City, leaving devastating loss of life and large-scale destruction of assets and infrastructure in its wake. In the following days, some entire villages were submerged as flood waters rose across the central region of the country in the provinces of Sofala, Zambezia, and Manica. An estimated 1.85 million people have been affected by the cyclone and the subsequent floods within the three provinces.
World Vision has established an Emergency Management Structure based in Beira (Sofala Province) for the Mozambique response in order to effectively coordinate efforts across multiple levels of the organization and through the UN Cluster system. The Mozambique Response Plan aims to reach 150,000 affected people through the provision of support in the following sectors: WASH, Child Protection, Health and Nutrition, Food and NFIs, Livelihoods, Protection and Education.
World Vision seeks a full-time Senior Programme Officer (SPO) (based in Beira, Mozambique) for the Southern Africa Floods and Cyclone Emergency Response (SAFCER) humanitarian programming in Mozambique. In response to the cyclone and flooding, WV programmes will provide gender-sensitive, coordinated assistance in order to limit the loss of life and mitigate human suffering in affected communities. To achieve this goal, the SAFCER will technically implement Food Security, Health and Nutrition, WASH, Shelter, Child Protection, Protection, and Non-Food Item activities in three provinces in Mozambique (Sofala, Manica, Zambezia).
The Senior Program Officer (SPO) will support the SAFCER Programme Department, principally managing the Grant Acquisition and Grant Management sub-departments and all POs therewithin. The SPO position will provide support to other departments as needed. Main responsibilities of the SPO will include manage proposal design, timely and quality donor reporting, grant management, information management and supporting local implementing partner, WV support (fundraising) offices, and donor engagement.
