COSACA Government Liaison Officer
Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children’s lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.
We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.
Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We’re changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.
The Consortium Government Liaison Officer, in coordination and under the supervision of the Consortium Manager and the DMG (all external communications needing to be approved by the latter), will ensure that key government stakeholders are kept informed on a regular, timely and qualitative manner of the consortium program progress, issues encountered when/where relevant, and that queries and requests coming from those parties are addressed adequately and timely. This position may be based in INGC.
