CP & CRG Coordinator – Kismayo – Open to Somali Nationals Only

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.

Role Dimensions:

Save the Children has been working in Somalia for more almost 70 years. The Country Office has 650 staff across 14 field offices (Boroma, Burao and Hargeisa in Somaliland; Bosasso, Garowe, Galkayo and Gardo, Beletweyne, Adaado, Abudwak, Baidoa, Kismayo, Dhobley and Mogadishu). In 2020, with an annual spent of US$117 million, we reached more than 3.3 million people through our humanitarian and longer-term development work in Child Survival (Health, Nutrition, Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH)); Education; Child Poverty Reduction; Child Protection; and Child Rights Governance.
