The Africa Programme Officer will be responsible for overseeing the management of selected Africa projects, as well as supporting the implementation of other projects that fall under the Africa programme. Whilst the role will focus initially on the management of the descent-based slavery projects in Niger, with a growing Programme portfolio, the role will also contribute to the development of new projects or initiatives and maintain a positive relationship with existing and new donors.
The Africa Programme Officer will be responsible for ensuring the efficient and effective implementation of project activities which includes coordinating research and advocacy, evaluations, drafting written materials (e.g. terms of references and briefing papers), monitoring project progress against work plans, logic frameworks and preparation and management of consultants.
The role will also involve collating data and drafting reports for donors, briefing papers and communications material; monitoring slavery-related developments in Africa and beyond, feeding into monitoring frameworks, project proposals and budgets; attending meetings with and on behalf of the Africa Programme and taking and circulating accurate notes. The role will also involve overseeing capacity building initiatives with partners, managing consultancy contracts, attending meetings/conferences on behalf of ASI and, when relevant, managing project trip logistics (e.g. arranging schedules, travel and visas etc).
The successful candidate will work in close coordination with in-country partners and donors, as well as working across the organisation with members of the wider Programmes and Advocacy, Fundraising and Communications and Finance and Admin teams.
With a growing number of partners to work with, the successful candidate will be someone who is highly organised, has excellent communication skills, enjoys record-keeping and has the ability to manage competing deadlines to implement multi-discipline projects.
