Do you have the strategic vision, private sector development experience and management skills to drive a programme taking on the challenge of transforming a key sector in Tanzania? Could you coach and develop a team to innovate and cultivate a range of partnerships and intervention strategies to make a real impact on Tanzania’s commercial forestry sector?
The Forestry Development Trust is recruiting for a Head of Programme who will strengthen the team at a political, technical, commercial and management level. This role will provide strategic leadership and operational management across all programmatic areas of the Trust, ensuring successful delivery of FDT’s interventions while fostering strong collaborative relationships across the sector.
The successful candidate will have substantial experience in programme management, and should be a strategic thinker with sound judgement, private sector DNA and skills in designing robust sector programme interventions. A very strong people manager, s/he will have excellent coaching and communications skills and self-awareness. Experience and understanding of the commercial forestry sector would be an added advantage, but is not essential.
