Habitat for Humanity International is looking for an individual to serve as Chief of Party (CoP) in India to take a lead role in strengthening the core functions of the National Office.
Habitat for Humanity India (National Office)
Founded in 1983, Habitat India has one of the largest housing programs in the Asia-Pacific region. In the past 39 years, we have worked across India to help over 38 million people live in better conditions. All efforts of Habitat India are supported by independently sourced funding and works with corporate partners, implementation partners and governments to widen its reach.
The Habitat for Humanity India Board of Trustees and its leadership, together with the management’s support from the Asia-Pacific regional Area Office located in the Philippines, has taken the strategic initiative to consolidate and strengthen the operations of Habitat India as the organization emerges from the global pandemic.
Habitat India had delivered a very meaningful humanitarian response to the acute basic needs of people during these challenging times. The dire circumstances of the pandemic compelled Habitat India to pivot from its mission in housing.
The strategic decision to consolidate and strengthen the operations will help Habitat India to refocus on the core of our organizational vision and mission, and to strengthen processes and systems that have been negatively impacted during the time of the global pandemic and lockdowns.
Overview of the assignment
The CoP role is to include ensuring adherence and understanding of relevant internal policies and reinforce the expected organizational culture of a HFH country office. The CoP will work on reviewing and updating relevant policies and working with the broader HFH India team in developing a comprehensive work plan to address recent audit findings to ensure these are undertaken in accordance with HFHI standard practices and procedures.
As part of the strategic decision to consolidate and strengthen the program operations a Project Management Committee (PMC) is to be established sponsored by the Habitat India’s Board of Trustees (BOT) and HFHI Asia-Pacific Area Office. The CoP will work closely with PMC members, AP Area office colleagues and across all departments of HFH India to assist and provide guidance on an extensive organizational review, restructure and strategic workforce planning.
Role and responsibilities
This is a 12-month fixed-term consultancy with a possibility of an extension. The CoP is to be based in Mumbai, India and will work very closely with the AP PMC Chair and department heads based in Manila, Philippines and the Habitat for Humanity India senior leadership team. The CoP will have office space and IT equipment provided for by the HFH India office. The CoP may be required to visit the different Habitat India office locations on an as-needed basis. The CoP will report directly to the Asia Pacific Area Vice President.
