Save the Children Australia (SCA) is inviting submissions of Expressions of Interest (EOI) from individual consultants, firms, or consortiums to undertake the Team Leader role on the DFAT funded Partnerships for Social Protection (P4SP) Pacific regional program.

Served as a key liaison point of contact with donors, key private sector partners, local institutions and communities in close coordination with home office and regional leadership.

This role requires:

  • Master's degree in International Development, Social Policy, Public Administration, Business Administration, or related qualification/s
  • 5+ years' work in senior managerial positions in development and/or humanitarian organisations
