Closing date: 2 Jun 2021

Senior Nutrition Advisor

RO***LE PURPOSE:*

Ethiopia has registered remarkable progress in reducing the burden of malnutrition over the past decades. Despite improving trends, however, undernutrition remains very high in Ethiopia. To accelerate the nutrition gains and address the challenges, the Ethiopia government has developed and endorsed food and nutrition policy in 2019 that hinges on the principle of attaining food and nutrition security as a constitutional human right. This has leveraged government commitment that is backed by a policy framework to enhance multi-sectoral responsibility and accountability to ensure that its citizens are food and nutrition secured.

Save the Children Ethiopia Office has been one of the major partner supporting the GoE through its multiple Nutrition programmes/projects in both development and emergency contexts. Currently, the country office is implementing different multi-sectoral nutrition programming to strengthen multi-sectoral coordination, building the capacity of nutrition sensitive and specific sectors to implement the national Food and Nutrition Policy and Strategy, supporting Sector Ministries in nutrition sensitive livelihoods and agriculture interventions, social and behaviour change communication (SBCC) and etc.

To ensure the quality of implementation of our nutrition programming, Save the Children plans to recruit a senior nutrition advisor who can provide the required technical leadership for our development nutrition programmes. The Senior Advisor will be responsible to technically lead all development nutrition programmes in planning and executing capacity building actions, ensure the implementation of Save the children's quality parameters like quality bench marks, common approaches and others. S/he will work to establish and strengthen relationship and a critical link between the Save the Children's global, regional and in-country stakeholders and partners. The senior advisor will lead to strengthen strategic partnerships for new business development and work in designing nutrition programmes that will impact the life of children and their families. S/he plays a role of internal coordination for our nutrition programming and represent the CO in both internal and external platforms. The senior advisor will lead the processes of identifying and document learnings, organize and share learning sessions and follow up the implementation at all levels of program operations.

In order to be successful you will bring/have:
