Job Description

We are recruiting a new Country Director for our Afghanistan programme. We are seeking an experienced NGO leader who is familiar with the challenges of operating within the constraints of a setting such as Afghanistan. You will ensure that the War Child team remains safe, and that our security protocols are well maintained. We want to further grow our programme, and central to this role will be the ability to build networks and alliances with local and international partners and to represent effectively with a wide range of donors.

About the Organization

War Child, the charity for children affected by war. We are delivering high-impact programmes that are rebuilding lives across Afghanistan, Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Central African Republic and Yemen. We understand children’s needs, respect their rights, and put them at the centre of the solution - from supporting Yemeni children to access education, to reintegrating child soldiers in the Central African Republic and upholding the rights of children caught up in juvenile justice in Afghanistan. We look forward to a world in which the lives of children are no longer torn apart by war. This is a vision that can only be realised through the collective actions of children themselves, communities and their leaders, organisations like War Child, governments and key decision makers.
