About the Organization

Job Description

SIHA needs a highly qualified and dedicated Regional Consortium Coordinator (RCC) for a senior position within the organization. The ideal candidate should possess a demonstrated passion and expertise in gender equality and women’s human rights.

The RCC will lead and guide collective planning and strategies for the implementation of activities, providing support and guidance to partners as required. This role is not just about individual contribution but about fostering a sense of teamwork and shared responsibility.
The RCC will work closely with the SIHA Programme Unit to build synergies with other SIHA projects and regional interventions in collaboration with the regional team. The RCC will report to the Regional Programme Manager (RPM) and Regional Director (RD). This role offers a unique opportunity for professional growth and development in the field of gender equality and women’s human rights.
Key areas of Accountability
In close cooperation with consortium partners, the RCC ensures that consortium projects are implemented in accordance with agreed-upon consortium guidelines and donors’ requirements, project outcomes and framework and based on SIHA feminist values. The RCC is expected to facilitate close and effective coordination and collaboration between consortium partners to ensure high-quality project interventions and results documentation.
