Who we are
CARE Nederland is part of CARE, an international humanitarian aid and development organization. CARE works around the globe to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice. We support emergency relief and help communities to recover and grow more resilient while we also address, together with communities, the complex causes of poverty and inequality, in fragile contexts. We use the evidence, learning and innovation from our programs to influence broader social change at significant scale. We believe in the inner strength of every human being. We stand with women and girls to achieve equal rights and opportunities. We develop smart solutions in co-creation with partners. We aim to be a partner of choice for others to strive for human dignity and a better world. Our key values are respect, reliability, commitment and quality. CARE has a zero tolerance toward sexual exploitation and abuse and child abuse and takes seriously all concerns and complaints about sexual exploitation and abuse and child abuse involving CARE Employees and Related Personnel.
How we are organized
To allow for achieving our strategic objectives and adjusting to the changing context of development cooperation, CARE Nederland is moving from a departmental division of the organization towards a project-oriented organization. Implementation of programs and projects is done by a pool of specialized and qualified staff, with combined expertise in program and project management, advocacy, thematic & country context, knowledge management, communication and finance. The pool of experts is supported by the Head of Sustainable Development and the Head of Humanitarian Action who are in charge of acquisition and partnerships. Furthermore the Pool is supported by a structure that guarantees HR Planning & Development, Finance & Control, Corporate Communication, Quality, Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning and ICT.
The Project Officer will be part of the pool of experts and will be responsible for proposal development, project and contract management of the CARE Nederland projects as well as for maintaining good relations with and developing capacities of assigned CARE Country Offices situated in Africa, Asia and/or Latin America. You will work with Country Teams, which coordinate the implementation of projects in-country, to ensure timely and adequate implementation to meet donor expectations. You will be answerable to the Heads of Humanitarian Action and/or Sustainable Development on the quality of project development and implementation. You will also participate in project teams for multi-country contracts managed by a coordinator. You will work closely with Finance Officers on financial issues related to the projects.
The PO will act on the following areas:
1. Proposal development and managing projects
