CARE USA Program Director Jobs in Ethiopia

Danish Refugee Council Chief of Party Jobs in Ethiopia

This has been our vision since 1945, when we were founded to send lifesaving CARE Packages® to survivors of World War II. Today, CARE is a global leader in the movement to eradicate poverty.

In 2016, CARE worked in 94 countries and reached 80 million people with an incredible range of life-saving programs.

We also put women and girls at the center of our work because we know that we cannot overcome poverty until all people have equal rights and opportunities. We seek dynamic, innovative thinkers to further our mission.

If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us.

CARE is seeking a talented Program Director who is responsible for ensuring that CARE’s programs in Ethiopia contribute to CARE’s vision of “a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been eliminated and people live with dignity and security”.

The Program Director is expected to provide strategic leadership in the areas of program development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation and ensure that CARE’s programs/projects make a significant contribution to reducing poverty and social injustice.
