      The Sierra Leone programme was established in September 1999, and therefore
      is still in its early stages of development. This provides exciting
      opportunities for the Programme Director to lead a review process of this
      first period, and develop the programme based on strategic issues for
      children in the country. The focus of the programme has been on social
      welfare and child protection. This is part of a unique sub-regional
      strategy, including general activities relating to separated children, and
      pioneering work with Children Associated with the Fighting Forces
      (CAFF). There are a number of ongoing research initiatives to document and
      learn from these experiences, in order to inform the institutional learning
      of SC and other international players such as the EU and UN bodies. Over
      the medium term SC is moving to adopt wider rights-based programming at all

      As the Programme Director, you will be responsible for the management and
      development of SCF's work in Sierra Leone. You will need substantial
      international senior management experience of overseas relief and
      development programmes, with proven ability to develop and implement
      policies and procedures in line with these programmes. You must be able to
      demonstrate skills in financial, resource and staff management and
      development. Strong analytical and conceptual skills, excellent team
      building and leadership skills and being committed to institutional and
      individual capacity building are also essential, as you will be managing
      the development and implementation of the country strategy paper.

      Being politically, culturally and socially aware, you will have experience
      of working in an area where security is an issue. It is essential that you
      have strong communication and interpersonal skills and have experience of
      senior level negotiation, liaison and representation with governments,
      local authorities and other NGOs. Experience of designing and implementing
      overseas relief and development programmes particular programme expertise
      in social welfare would be desirable.
