The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), with funding of the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), is supporting the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) to adapt technically and institutionally to the new requirements of the Strategic Plan covering the period 2017 to 2021. ECREEE is at cross-roads and needs to align its internal proceedings and competence to the changing demands of ECOWAS Member States. To contribute to positive institutional change, UNIDO is recruiting an experienced international Senior Program Management Expert to be based at the ECREEE Secretariat in Praia, Cabo Verde.
In close coordination with the Executive Director (ED) of ECREEE and the UNIDO project manager, the senior expert will take domestic leadership in the implementation of the UNIDO project “Capacity-building support for the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency in the scope of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres”. The expert acts as integrated expert and supports the senior management of ECREEE in the further strengthening of its internal proceedings, quality frameworks and the expansion of its technical program. The expert demonstrates diplomatic skills, empathy and compassion which allows him/her to contribute to positive institutional change as a mentor and coach. The expert understands his/her assignment as timely limited support to ECREEE staff and stays in the background. The implementation of the project requires a sound mixture of senior management, institution building, programme management and energy skills.
All applications must be submitted through the UNIDO Online Recruitment System at latest by 14 February 2019 (CET).
