FHI 360 is seeking a full-time Senior Technical Officer to lead FHI 360’s activities in Ghana under the Sexual Health and Reproductive Education (SHARE) program, a five-year, multi-country CAD $36.69M program funded by Global Affairs Canada (GAC).
Designed as a gender-transformative, human-rights progressive sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) program, SHARE’s ultimate outcome is to increase the enjoyment of health-related human rights by adolescent girls and young women in Ghana, Mozambique, and Uganda.
SHARE will be implemented as a consortium led by Right To Play (RTP), in partnership with WaterAid, the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE), and FHI 360.
SHARE will leverage the four unique areas of expertise of the consortium members and technical partners – RTP’s Gender-Responsive Play-Based Learning approach, WaterAid’s expertise in WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene), FAWE’s strong experience in advocacy and policy change, and FHI 360’s girl-focused health service and empowerment methodologies.
The Senior Technical Officer will lead and implement SHARE project activities in Ghana ensuring high-quality results and strong communication with FHI 360 HQ staff and consortium partners.
The Senior Technical Officer will lead a team to implement and monitor project initiatives collaborating across consortium partners and will be tasked with adapting global training materials and overseeing a staff that will lead training and mentorship activities.
The Senior Technical Officer should have a strong project management and adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health (AYSRH) background, excellent communication skills, and a demonstrated ability to collaborate and influence processes with strong results.
