FHI 360 is seeking applications for a Deputy Chief of Party for an anticipated USAID-funded Key Populations Activity in Nigeria which will build on current investments made by USAID to reduce risk of HIV transmission among key populations and will improve their enrollment and retention in care and treatment across the HIV cascade.

The Activity will address critical gaps and bottlenecks in the response to HIV among KPs by implementing a comprehensive package of services in line with the WHO guidelines.


The DCOP will be responsible for administrative and financial leadership of the program to ensure quality, timeliness, and efficiency of project set-up, daily operations, and close-out.

The DCOP will manage the administrative and logistic infrastructure of key components of the program description and ensure adherence to global standard of excellence in health service delivery programming and donor-specified compliance.

The position will be based in Adamawa and will report to the Chief of Party. Recruitment is contingent upon successful award of the project and the selection of the final applicant is subject to USAID approval.
