– Smart program management,

– Managing the program team,

– Promoting linkages between programs and strengthening monitoring and learning,

– Lead further growth of the portfolio by managing the start-up of new program areas, through building new teams and establishing new partnerships.

To be successful, you’ll need to have:

  • A graduate degree in relevant fields

  • Exceptional influencing and negotiation skills
