We are recruiting to fill the position below:

Job Title: Deputy Director

Locations: Southern Katsina/Northern Kaduna Region, Nigeria

Report to: Project Director, JIVA Nigeria Program

Project Summary/ Job Description
We are seeking to strengthen the local systems that drive prosperity and opportunity and forge community resilience. Therefore, we are in need of qualified candidates for the position of Deputy Director to be based full-time in the Southern Katsina/Northern Kaduna Office, Nigeria. This position will work with the JIVA Nigeria team to design an integrated community development project with a focus on enhancing resilient agriculture and accountable education in the region. As a new initiative, JIVA Nigeria is part of PYXERA Global’s broader JIVA programming, housed within the Enterprise and Community Development division.

The JIVA program traces its roots to a corporate volunteer project undertaken in 2011. The team spent a week working side-by-side with residents of three villages in rural Rajasthan, India. Inspired by this engagement, the Foundation partnered with PYXERA Global to identify the most pressing needs in the villages and empower the villagers to determine for themselves how best to meet these challenges. On the basis of this work together with the residents, the Joint Initiative for Village Advancement (JIVA) project funded by the Foundation and implemented by PYXERA Global began in January 2013.

The JIVA Nigeria project will involve collaboration with diverse partners and a drive to be continuously adaptive to the local context. The Deputy Director will support the Project Director in leading and working with the JIVA Nigeria project team to design, plan, manage, monitor, and evaluate the project’s resilient agriculture and accountable education activities. The ideal candidate will have significant experience managing multi-sector and integrated development programs, leading teams, designing and starting up projects, and managing iterative and adaptive projects related to community agriculture and education in a rural setting. As part of the JIVA Nigeria team, the Deputy Director will also exemplify the JIVA Values (below) and value and encourage teamwork, equality, and a strong work ethic across all members of the JIVA Nigeria team.
