Country Lead, Tunisia

You are eligible for this position if you have demonstrated experience in project management and private sector development. Please note that only applicants who are residents in Tunisia will be considered. All submissions must be in English.

Project Overview and Role:

The Challenge Fund for Youth Employment (CFYE) is a 6-year and €114 million programme funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, that aims to create a prosperous future for 200,000 young women and men in the Middle East, North Africa, Sahel & West Africa and Horn of Africa regions. The Fund will be supporting initiatives in 23 focus countries that will offer youth, in particular young women, opportunities for work that is demand-driven and productive, offering a stable income and safe working conditions, and that is contributing to their personal development and social protection.

Private sector, civil society and knowledge institutions have been invited to submit proposals geared to scalable solutions for creating more and better jobs and income generating opportunities for youth. Solutions will in particular focus on an integrated approach that addresses the shortcomings on the demand side (jobs) and supply side (skills) and bridging the mismatch between these two in the labour market.

The Country Lead will be responsible for representing the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment in Tunisia, and acting as the primary point of contact for the Fund for Implementing Partners (IPs). The Country Lead will act as ‘critical friend’ of the IPs, which will be reflected in closely monitoring the project performance on the one hand, but also discussing any emerging issues from that with the IP, in an open and transparent manner.

The portfolio in Tunisia is expected to consist of about 8 to 10 implementing partners (IPs). The Country Lead will ensure that IPs are compliant with the Fund’s delivery guidelines. This includes monitoring the progress of the IPs’ projects, supporting them with technical and financial reporting, providing strategic guidance, mobilizing technical assistance (TA), and any other needs that may arise.

The Country Lead will liaise with the Central Team (including Fund Management, Technical Assistance, Monitoring Evaluation and Learning, Financial Management, Communications, and Project Delivery) to report on progress, flag issues, and contribute to high-quality learning from their portfolio.
