TradeMark East Africa (TMEA)

Dar es Salaam 23/08/19 -20/09/19

Descriptions










TradeMark East Africa (TMEA) is an
aid-for-trade organisation that was established with the aim of growing
prosperity in East Africa through increased trade. TMEA operates on a
not-for-profit basis and is funded by the development agencies of the
following countries: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands,
Norway, United Kingdom, and United States of America. TMEA works closely with
East African Community (EAC) institutions, national governments, the private
sector and civil society organisations.


TMEA, with an annual expenditure of
around US$100 million, is now the leading aid-for-trade facility in the
world. TMEA has its headquarters in Nairobi with vibrant and successful
operations in EAC-Arusha, Burundi, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo,
Ethiopia, South Sudan, Uganda and Rwanda. The first phase of TMEA delivered
exceptional results which directly contributed to substantial gains in East
Africa’s trade and regional integration environment in terms of reduced
transit times, improved border efficiency, and reduced barriers to trade. 


We are now in the second phase and we aim
to deliver even more large-scale impact to maximise the potential benefits of
aid-for-trade interventions which lead to sustainable and inclusive
prosperity through job creation, poverty reduction and enhanced economic
welfare.






We
are looking for high calibre, results-oriented and experienced professional to join
our team in the position below.











The Director, Private Sector Advocacy will be responsible
for directing and monitoring TradeMark East Africa’s (TMEA’s) workstreams
related to the Private Sector Advocacy portfolio at the regional and national
levels in the countries in which TMEA operates, in line with TMEA project
documents and the TMEA Theory of Change (TOC).
 The primary objective will be to enhance
private sector organisations’ (PSOs) capacity to proactively and positively
influence decision-making, to accelerate dispute resolution, to sustain
political buy-in, to increase commitment and to reduce overall programme
risks in TMEA’s project clusters.






The
ideal candidate will possess an
undergraduate degree with at least 12 years of
relevant working experience OR a
Master’s degree with at least 10 years of relevant working experience (i.e.
 experience gained while working in private sector and
civil society development, policy advocacy and stakeholder engagement

reform and related areas). In addition, s/he will have a minimum of five years’
experience
leading and managing programmes
