SOS Children`s Villages is hiring a
SOS Children's Villages in Ethiopia (SOSCVE) is a non-governmental, non-political, non-denominational charitable child welfare organization. For the past more than 40 years, we have been working to build families for children in need, help them shape their future, and share in the development of their communities. Everything we do is based on the best interest of the child. We help vulnerable families care for their children, and we work to prevent the breakdown of parental care. When children lose parental care (the care of families of origin), we provide quality alternative care in different care settings according to the children’s best interest. We support young people in their efforts to become independent adults and succeed in life.
We collaborate with donors, communities, governments, and other organizations to reach the children who need support when emergencies strike; we focus on providing humanitarian assistance, care, and protection for children and families in coordination with the government and other relief agencies. We continuously measure the impact of our program.
For more than four-decade, SOS CVE has been designing various interventions to support vulnerable children and youth in Ethiopia. With its midterm plan and strategy 2030, the organization is striving to reach many more Children and Youth with its programs.
As SOS CVE thrives in developing programs and exploring uncharted territory, it is paramount that its co-workers particularly leaders possess the right skills and capacity to deliver quality programs. It is vital to cultivate leaders who are capable of delivering the goals and objectives of SOS CVE, and even more crucial to nurture future leaders that can drive the organization’s goals and strategy further.
SOS CVE has a foundation for building the capacity of co-workers. Records indicate that programs and efforts in place have been contributing to co-workers’ growth over the years. As it strengthens the culture of developing our co-workers, SOS CVE is taking steps to ensure business continuity when leadership departures occur.
