The Programme Coordinator is expected to provide leadership on convening and coordination of partnerships among intergovernmental organizations, local government, CSOs, professional associations and international development agencies in the substantive and related programme areas. More specifically, the Programme Coordinator provides leadership and technical guidance for planning, implementation and monitoring of UNFPA programmes in Zambezia, especially on prevention and management of obstetric fistula, child marriage and other forms of GBV, adolescent pregnancy, ASRH services, comprehensive sexuality education, expanded economic opportunities, youth participation and leadership and prevention and management of obstetric fistula.
UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. UNFPA’s new strategic plan (2018-2021), focuses on three transformative results: to end preventable maternal deaths; end unmet need for family planning; and end gender-based violence and harmful practices.
In a world where fundamental human rights are at risk, we need principled and ethical staff, who embody these international norms and standards, and who will defend them courageously and with full conviction.
UNFPA is seeking candidates that transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results; we need staff who are transparent, exceptional in how they manage the resources entrusted to them and who commit to deliver excellence in programme results.
Excellent oral and written communication in English and Portuguese.
