Child Rescue Nepal wishes to recruit an experienced country director to start in April 2016.
The INGO works for the most vulnerable children in Nepal, often those who have been trafficked. Programmes include educational improvements, anti-trafficking promotion, rescuing and reuniting children with families, the prosecution of traffickers, and the management of three care homes. The Director will work closely with the main partner NGO, the Esther Benjamin Memorial Foundation and its board implementing a programme of about $300,000 per year. The successful candidate requirements are: a degree in a relevant subject, some international NGO experience, and a minimum of five years in a related children's charity where he or she has had executive level experience of programme design and management, and evidence of past delivery against targets and schedules. Strong communication and financial skills and excellent written English and Nepali are essential and will be tested during the final selection process. The position is based in Kathmandu and Hetauda and open to international candidates. References and past employers will be interviewed later but details are not required at this point and certificates submitted in evidence will be checked. CRN reserves the rights to reject any or all applications.
Applicants should send their updated CV and cover letter summarising in not more than 400 words why they are suited to this position. Please include salary expectations, availability, contact details including skype and make clear they match to each of the above requirements.
