The USAID Building Capacity for African Agricultural Transformation (Africa Lead II) Project is a five-year program to support and advance the agricultural transformation in Africa as proposed by the African Union Comprehensive African Agricultural Development Program (CAADP). Africa Lead contributes to Feed the Future goals of reduced hunger and poverty by building the capacity of men and women African leaders and institutions to develop, lead, and manage the transformation process.
Africa Lead requires a senior program manager to oversee the design, planning, implementation and monitoring of the East Africa program. Because of the broad nature and complexity of issues and institutions addressed by Africa Lead, the position requires outstanding conceptual, technical design and management skills.
The East Africa Program Lead will have primary responsibility for leading and overseeing regional program activities. This will entail: establishing strong lines of regular communication with key USAID/EA and USAID bilateral Mission representatives; building strong relationships with regional partners; developing and managing budgets; managing multiple work streams simultaneously; and overseeing the timely and effective implementation of technical activities.
