Job Description

This position is the overall management of one or multiple moderate-sized projects.

Overall and complete management requires a person to be able to complete all the tasks from the planning stage to the implementation, monitoring and evaluation and when necessary the termination of a project. A person in the position will be responsible to manage one or multiple projects that come to a combined budget total between two and five crores.

It is expected that a person in this position will be able to manage up to 30 full time employees over a range of different fields as per the project/s purpose and description.

This position requires a person with good decision making ability, staff management and monitoring and excellent networking skills. You should be highly knowledgeable in the field of the project and be willing to constantly learn, carry out research, and implement new and effective methods of how the project can be improved. You should be aware of relevant legislation and keep current with any changes.

This position of Project Coordinator will oversee two of For the One’s projects. The two projects are RRR and NSL.

Repatriation, Rehabilitation and Reintegration Project (RRR)

The RRR Project targets to empower survivors of human trafficking and sexual abuse. The project prioritizes minor aged rape survivors and those who have been trafficked in Nepal and India. As the ultimate goal of the project is for these girls to be able to safely return back to their families where they can continue their recovery and thrive, another crucial aspect of the project is community development which helps address the social and cultural climate of the girls’ communities.

Next Step Living (NSL)

While most of our safe home graduates will be able to return to their communities; for some that is not possible. The NSL project provides a platform for the Safe Home graduates who are 18+ to transition from receiving full time care into independence. NSL ensures a safe place where the girls can live their life to the fullest employing the skills and mindset they nurtured while at the safe home.

We require someone with experience a minimum of 5 years in the anti-human trafficking sector and working alongside government officials.
