Save the Children is seeking a Gender, Youth and Social Dynamics Lead for an anticipated five-year USAID-funded Development Food Security Activity (DFSA) in Zimbabwe. The program will seek to sustainably improve food and nutrition security and resilience among poor and chronically vulnerable households and communities in the selected regions. The estimated implementation timeframe for the DFSA is 2020-2025.
Hiring is contingent upon successful award of the project and USAID approval of the candidate.
What You’ll Be Doing (Essential Duties)
The proposed program will be an integrated, multi-sectoral food and nutrition security intervention. The Gender, Youth and Social Dynamics Lead will work as a member of a multi-disciplinary team to ensure that the program applies gender integration approaches, and works towards gender transformative impact, at all levels of the program including research, assessments, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. The Gender, Youth and Social Dynamics Lead will ensure and promote the equitable participation of women, men, girls, and boys and the reduction of gender disparities and harmful norms to achieve food and nutrition security outcomes.
