Job Expired


BMZ Project Coordinator-CP&CRG– (Mogadishu) Open to Somali Nationals Only

Save the Children is the world’s leading independent organisation for children. We work in 120 countries. We save children’s lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.

We work together, with our partners, to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

We have over two million supporters worldwide and raised 1.9 billion dollars last year to reach more children than ever before, through programmes in health, nutrition, education, protection and child rights, also in times of humanitarian crises.

Following a major transition, our international programmes are now delivered through a merged operation with 15,000 staff, managed through seven regional hubs and reporting to a relatively small, central office. We’re changing to become more efficient, more aligned, a better partner, a stronger advocate, a magnet for world-class people and relevant for the 21st century.


Save the Children operates across all zones in Somalia and currently has three main area offices and additional 11 field offices. Programmatically Somalia is a large Country Office with more than $100million annual budget turnover, more than 70 active awards at any time and over 650 staff.


Under the management from the Child Protection & Child Rights Governance (CRG) Programme Manager, the BMZ Project Coordinator is responsible for the promotion of the Rights of the Child in accordance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child through co-operation with local and regional organizations, institutions, authorities and international organizations. The post holder will lead the implementation of the BMZ project in Mogadishu and Kismayo Field Offices. This should be done in accordance with the guidelines of Save the Children International, which aims to strengthen the civil society in which children are perceived as social players and human beings in their own right. This includes budget as well as programmatic implementation and monitoring according to SCI standards.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.
