  • You are comfortable working in the context of rapid change and can adapt to emerging challenges of program implementation.

  • You will be part of a grassroots, community-led program that is doing something about environmental protection.
  • Each day will present unique challenges and rewards, both big and small.
  • You will contribute to the localisation of development and the revitalisation of environmental protection in the Pacific.
  • You will develop your own career and skills within a growing organisation.

 

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THIS ROLE:

 

  • Managing work package collaboration through our management platform, tracking and documenting activity, adhering to progress reporting requirements.
  • Supporting the co-ordination of activities in Pacific Island communities and monitoring/managing any risks and updating the risk register.
  • Collaborating with finance to manage the budgets, including drafting, forecasting, checking expenditures and working on budget variations.
  • Overseeing any procurement processes on goods and services, ensuring organisational policies are followed.
  • Identifying, managing and escalating any issue to the program management unit to be resolved, minimising any impact on program and stakeholders.
  • Maintaining good project partnerships with Pacific offices, collaborators, partners and donors; using constructive dialogue to mitigate conflict or miscommunication.
  • Operationalising the MERL process, tracking and reporting achievements and developing interventions for shortfalls or gaps.
  • Developing and leading the monthly program management unit meeting and quarterly country updates with donors.
  • Developing and improving GEDSI strategies that teams can use to monitor the inclusivity of their activities and its impact among diverse groups.
  • Preparing a donor report component explaining progress against GEDSI strategies.
  • Overseeing Live & Learn environmental, health and safety, fraud management, safeguarding and child protection policies across the program.

Live & Learn’s network operates in 11 countries in the Pacific and Asia, working passionately towards an equitable and sustainable world. Each Live & Learn office is autonomous, and the network is bound by a commitment to community development activities on food security, nature-based solutions to climate change, and the safeguarding of water resources. Our approach is collaborative, working to support government strategies whilst meeting community needs. We are a localised, collaborative and courageous organisation working with many stakeholders. We balance compliance needs with flexibility for quick, innovative responses.
