For over 40 years, FHI 360 has built the capacity of individuals, communities, and governments to address the needs of vulnerable populations. In more than 60 countries, our work is grounded in research and evidence, and our staff and experts have developed partnerships to support programs in education, economic growth, monitoring and evaluation, peacebuilding and countering violent extremism (CVE), positive youth development, technology and innovation, and health access and services. Our integrated approaches across a broad set of disciplines and countries helps develop customized responses to complex challenges addressing multiple aspects of people’s lives. We are currently seeking qualified Deputy Chief of Party candidates for the anticipated Quality Education and Skills Training - Philippine Qualifications Framework (QUEST-PQF) activity.
The anticipated 5-year USAID-funded activity will be designed to work with the Government of the Philippines, education and training institutions, and the private sector to develop qualifications aligned to the needs of industries, strengthen quality assurance among education and training institutions, and improve the information flowing between industries, jobseekers, education and training institutions, students/ trainees, and government. The activity outcomes will include better jobs-skills alignments, productivity, demand for qualified professionals and technicians, enhanced employability, and strengthened competitiveness of Philippines-based enterprises in local, regional and global markets.
The DCOP will support the Chief of Party in overseeing project implementation and will provide technical and management leadership to the overall project. S/he will represent the project to external stakeholders including government officials and donors and will supervise project staff to ensure that project activities are completed in a timely manner and are of high technical quality. The position will report to the Chief of Party. Recruitment is contingent upon successful award of the project and the selection of the final applicant is subject to USAID approval.
