SNV Nepal is looking for a:
Senior Advisor Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)
Based in Kathmandu, Nepal
SNV has adopted a programmatic approach to its work in three different sectors- Agriculture, Renewable Energy and Water Sanitation and Hygiene. This is to ensure that within each sector, there is a clear framework for working at scale for impact and to assure quality at scale and to create a wider platform for knowledge generation and result validation.
The SNV Asia WASH strategy identifies three programmes:
SSH4A programmes consist of 4 components: 1) Sanitation demand triggering and follow-up; 2) Strengthening sanitation supply chain development; 3) Developing Behavioural Change Communication (BCC) for hygiene and sanitation marketing; and 4) Improving WASH governance and multi-stakeholder sector development.
Similarly, FWSS consists of Improving WASH Governance, Post Construction Support, improving capacity and performance of Implementers and Operators.
The programmes aim to design interventions to sustain hygiene behavioural change communications over time. As this cannot be done within the scope of any programme within a limited period of time, the programmes focus on building the capacity in local line agencies and other relevant actors to develop, test and implement BCC. Anchoring innovative BCC in local organisations is the essence of the BCC component.
The objective of this position is 1) to contribute to overall quality of programme content, business development for Resource Mobilisation and management of the programmes, and 2) to lead the BCC components of the WASH sector programmes - building on the existing foundation focusing on strengthening BCC (develop, test and establish innovative localised behavioural change communication strategies with relevant stakeholders).
This is a senior advisory position that aims for strategic positioning, network development, resource mobilisaton, review & evaluation of advisory services, coaching and knowledge development.

The WASH Advisor will report to the SNV WASH Sector Leader of SNV Nepal.
