N´weti is a well-referenced, dynamic Mozambican organization working since 2008 to bring about positive social and behavior change in relation to Malaria, sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), HIV, gender-based violence (GBV), family planning and other health areas. N´weti´s social and behavioural change work catalyzes social mobilization and advocacy by increasing public dialogue, shifting harmful norms, influencing health-seeking behavior, and generating demand for health services and community action. We seek qualified candidates for the position Chief of Party (CoP) for an upcoming, USAID-funded comprehensive social and behavior change (SBC) program. Availability of the position is contingent upon issuance of a USAID Request for Applications, and selection of final applicant is subject to USAID approval. In this context, the Chief of Party will provide overall strategy and vision to the SBC Malaria program and lead the design, development, implementation and monitoring of the program.
The COP will provide overall vision and leadership for the project; develop annual work plans and ensure successful implementation; and assume technical and management responsibility for all project personnel, including consultants.

S/he must also have a demonstrated ability to collaborate effectively and efficiently with host country agencies, including central and local governments, development partners, civil society, and community-based organizations. Experience in malaria SBC is preferred. He/she will be the primary liaison for the project with USAID, other donors and institutions, implementing partners, technical agencies and other stakeholders, ensuring alignment and harmonization with other programming where appropriate, including public/private sector partnerships.
