[QUOTE=Kachanchabuseta;3979531]Head of Corporate Services Vacancy
The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and Department for International Development (DFID) are pleased to advertise a challenging local position in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania:
HEAD OF CORPORATE SERVICES
Gross salary up to 51.1M Tanzanian Shillings per annum
This post is a challenging opportunity to lead Corporate Services for the British government presence in Tanzania. The post brings together corporate services in support of the UK’s diplomatic relations (led by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, FCO) and aid programme (led by the Department for International Development, DFID) overseas. We need an excellent communicator with at least 5 years’ management experience and a track record of at least 2 years of strong team leadership, preferably in an international organisation.
UK Department for International Development (DFID)
DFID leads the UK Government’s fight against global poverty. DFID works in partnership with national governments, other development partners, civil society and the private sector to achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals.
DFID Tanzania’s overarching objective is to see Tanzania reduce the poverty of its people and become independent from aid, which will require a shift to sustainable growth which delivers jobs and raises rural incomes. DFID’s plan for the next four years therefore increases support for the critical role that the private sector and market systems play in combating rural poverty through greater competition, investment and regional integration.
The plan is aligned to the objectives set out in the Government of Tanzania’s five year National Strategy for Growth and the Reduction of Poverty (2010/11 to 2014/15). It has three strategic objectives:
1. Wealth creation. DFID will scale up programmes to increase the incomes of the rural poor, increase access to finance, improve resilience to climate change, reduce the cost of doing business and, in our regional integration programme, reduce trade and transport costs that limit the competitiveness of Tanzanian exports.
2. Delivering the Millennium Development Goals. DFID will build on progress in the provision of basic services and address key areas where the Government of Tanzania is not able to meet the needs of the poorest and most marginalised, concentrating in areas where we have a comparative advantage.
3. Getting Government to work better and helping Tanzanians hold their Government to account. DFID will help build a more accountable democratic state that responds to people’s needs, and help Tanzanian citizens access and use information on their services, entitlements and rights.
UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO)
The High Commission, under the UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office, represents the British government in its relations with the Tanzanian Government and promotes British interests in Tanzania. The High Commission’s work in Tanzania contributes to the UK’s three foreign policy priorities.
