Learn more about the job of Humanitarian Programme Manager :
It is currently difficult for many humanitarian and development organisations to recruit and retain skilled programme managers. These difficulties directly impact the efficiency of their programmes. Over recent years there has been increased attention given by humanitarian and development agencies to the quality of humanitarian and development practice and raised awareness of the importance of ensuring programme quality in the sector. Bioforce has been actively involved in these developments through extensive consultations on the challenges faced by NGOs. Developing their ability to hire, develop and retain competent managers has been recognised as a top priority. Both humanitarian and development organisations as well as individuals expressed the need for training programmes that enable potential and current managers to develop their technical, analytical and personal skills.
This Humanitarian Programme Manager training programme aims at training NGO’s managers within the humanitarian and development sector (NGO, associations, foundations, etc.): a 3-month training built around the 3 humanitarian programme manager’s core competencies (Managing People and Organisations, Managing Programmes and Projects, Managing Finance and Funding) + a 6-month workbased learning in the field with an NGO, as employees or paid volunteers.
