Job: Country Director - Chad (based in N’djamena with frequent travel around Chad and occasional travel to UK)

£30,000 annual salary (plus in-country accommodation; R&R travel)

 Cord is a UK based NGO committed to working through local partner organisations in conflict-affected countries to address the underlying causes of conflict and to build a strong and dynamic civil society.  Cord’s programmes in Chad focus on supporting education and solar cooker programmes for Sudanese refugee communities in Eastern Chad.  However, we would like to increase our work in other sectors with local communities throughout Chad, focusing more comprehensively on peacebuilding and women and girl’s empowerment.  

 We are looking for a dynamic and motivated COUNTRY DIRECTOR to:

  • Lead, guide and enable the implementation of the transition plan for Chad (related to the changes needed to operationalise the global strategy)
  • Lead on developing the new 3-year Country Strategy Plan (including a fundraising strategy) in line with Cord strategy, country context etc
  • Support/facilitate the research and development of new partnerships and new programmes in line with Cord’s global strategy
  • Ensure all current programme activities follow best practice and are in line with agreed contracts, targets and budgets
  • Lead, guide and support the development of participatory monitoring and evaluation systems
  • Represents Cord’s interests at senior government level, major donors and others
  • Ensures Cord Chad’s security policy, standard operating procedures and contingency plans are regularly reviewed, disseminated and practised

 The ideal candidate should have at least 3 years’ experience leading teams and programmes in the development and/or peacebuilding sector.  The candidate should also have proven experience leading internal change processes and demonstrate proficiency in key approaches (such as participatory M&E; child safeguarding; conflict sensitivity).  In addition, we will be looking for someone with good French and English; and a self-starter, who is able to work cross culturally and build relationships at a distance.


The post-holder will be line managed by the Regional Director for Africa, who is based in London.
