It’s hard to believe that in today’s day and time 844 million people do not have clean water and 2.3 billion do not even have a decent toilet. Every two minutes, a child under five dies from diarrheal disease caused by water and sanitation.
WaterAid is a global organisation working across 34 countries over 3 decades to offer clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene to communities we work with. We aim to convince governments to change laws, link policymakers to grassroots, pool knowledge and resources, and rally global support from people and organisations to make lasting change in the lives of the poor, marginalised and excluded people around WASH services.
We seek a competent candidate for the post of Manager - Regional Learning and Strategic Support for our South Asia Regional office which supports our country programmes in the region (Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Myanmar) to facilitate our mission and enable the provision of WASH rights/ services to the communities we work with. The South Asia Region also provides a regional platform for learning and quality assurance and leads regional and relevant international initiatives on WASH.
The Regional Learning and Strategic Support Manager as a member of the core Regional Team provides crucial support to the South Asia Region to discharge the above.
This post will be based in Dhaka and is open to Bangladeshi or other nationals based in the country with a valid work permit.
The key purpose of this role (full time, 37.5h a week) is to promote knowledge management; learning and strategic support towards quality programme planning, coordination, reporting and assurance across the region.
The Regional Learning and Strategic Support Manager will have strong internal work relationships (across the region and globally) and actively network with external knowledge management and learning organisations platforms on WASH.
