Job Summary

Save the Children has been operational in Kenya since the 1950s, providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered both directly and through local partners. Current programming focuses on child protection, child rights governance, education, health, HIV/AIDS, livelihoods, nutrition and WASH. In 2012, as part of a global reorganization process, Save the Children combined the programmes of SC UK, SC Canada and SC Finland to create a single operation in Kenya. In February 2014, we completed a second transition, which saw us join forces with the British INGO, Merlin, and merge their health and nutrition programmes with our own. Save the Children now has an operational presence in Bungoma, Dadaab Refugee Camp, Garissa, Mandera, Nairobi, Turkana and Wajir. We work through partners in many other parts of the country. We have a staff complement of around 300 staff and an operating annual budget of approximately US$16 million in 2018.


Responsibilities

Working with members of the global IT team, the role holder will be responsible for coordinating implementation and support of Technology for programs (T4P) initiatives within the organisation. This role will partner with business stakeholders in order to understand their technological requirements, gather and share solutions from across the alliance and outside in order to meet the identified needs of SCI while utilising best practices. The role requires experience in adapting existing solutions as well as suggesting new solutions, providing decision makers with contextually-appropriate ICT4D solutions to project needs. The candidate should be adaptable to a variety of technologies, experienced in IT solution design and implementation, and an enthusiastic advocate for new technologies.
