You’ll work in our Nairobi office as part of our Sustainable Urban Economic Development (SUED) team.
SUED is a donor-funded, 6-year programme whose core objective is to provide sustainable urban economic development in Small and Medium Towns (SMTs) in Kenya. The programme improved urban economic planning at county level, improved sub-national business environment reforms, and established an Urban Investment Advisory Facility (UIAF) to support public-private investment in Infrastructure and high potential value chains across Kenya.
You will serve as the face of the SUED programme, providing the overall managerial, technical leadership and project oversight to ensure successful delivery and generate impact.
In particular, you will develop strong relationships with government officials at both national and county level, implementing partners, private sector stakeholder, etc. You’ll provide leadership, guidance and mentorship to the overall programme team and develop relationships with key stakeholders to achieve programme impact. You’ll define detailed roles and responsibilities of the Project Management Unit, and you’ll develop and establish an effective communication strategy for the programme. Additionally, you’ll develop an annual action and implementation plan while managing risk, monitoring value for money, and monitoring and reporting results.
