The Liberia Country Manager will be responsible for opening Evidence Action’s country office in Liberia, launching the maternal syphilis program, and potentially supporting the development of new programs in Liberia and the expansion of the maternal syphilis program into additional countries. This is a unique opportunity for someone who is dynamic, self-motivated, and able to effectively drive large-scale change in a fast-paced and challenging environment.
Evidence Action’s Accelerator is aiming to launch a new program to support the Liberian government to increase screening and treatment for maternal syphilis via introduction and scale-up of a dual HIV/syphilis rapid test within antenatal care settings. We are seeking a high-performing, experienced Manager to lead this program, which will be our first in Liberia. This role offers the exciting opportunity to spearhead the development of a new program, to build and manage a high-performing office, and to develop and manage key partnerships with government, development partners, and other non-profit organizations to achieve national-scale coverage of syphilis screening and treatment.
We are seeking candidates with the right personal qualities: a self-directed, entrepreneurial approach toward building a new program; open-mindedness and flexibility in the face of challenges or changes in direction; exceptional strategic and problem-solving skills; excellent cross-cultural communication skills; a deep commitment to rigorous evidence and data-driven decision-making; and high emotional intelligence to build your team and foster strong relationships with external partners. Candidates must have prior experience working in developing countries.
