The Government of Mozambique is currently implementing a national Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) Programme with funding and support from the Department of International Development (DFID) through a £38.5 million programme of ‘Transforming Rural WASH in Mozambique’.


SNV is looking to identify an experienced manager to lead implementation of an anticipated 3 year £23m contract to manage funding to Water, Sanitation and Health (WASH) suppliers and sub-contractors, support procurement capacity development in provincial government, and to monitor and assess progress of ongoing works with government counterparts.

  • Assess submitted documentation and evidence from sub-contractors and suppliers to trigger payments, and select specific contracts for field visits (audits) to verify that works activities have been carried out satisfactorily prior to payment.
