Background:

Adolescent girls are twice as likely to have an unmet need for contraception compared to women in their twenties, putting them at increased risk of unintended pregnancy. They are also more likely to face age-related stigma and barriers to accessing sexual and reproductive health services, as well as lack of information and agency, increasing the risk that they delay seeking services. There are still gaps in our knowledge and understanding of effective adolescent health programming, especially at scale, and there are very few sexual and reproductive health services that have been tailored to adolescents. We need to explore new approaches and to implement promising ones, such as engaging the private sector to reach adolescents and providing complementary and coordinated interventions.

Main purpose of job:

The Country Lead is responsible for the delivery of the programme at the country level in Kenya under the overall direction of the Team Leader and Deputy Team Leader. The key responsibilities are:

  • Delivery of the integrated programme in Kenya, overseeing the coordinated implementation of all workstreams;

  • Representation of the programme in relevant national networks and events, whenever relevant to Safire.

The Country Lead will provide leadership, programmatic direction and oversight to the Safire Kenya team; oversee development and implementation of the country consortium workplans and support a coordinated one-team work approach across the consortium partnership. The Country Lead is responsible for ensuring our strategy is cohesively implemented, overseeing quality of country activities underpinned by the highest safeguarding standards, and externally representing the programme as needed.

  • Experience in managing sub-contractors, suppliers, and/or civil society implementing partners
  • Experience engaging with a range of stakeholders at a senior level, both nationally and sub-nationally
