Job Title: Programme Officer
Location: 
Adamawa
Department: Education & Society
Job Category: Project Management
Pay Band: Locally appointed Grade G
Duration: Fixed Term (till December 2020)
Role Type: Business Delivery
Reports to: Operations

Role purpose

  • The Programme Officer will be responsible for managing the administrative and logistical support to programme activities to ensure quality and timeliness of delivery; good control of resources and compliance with agreed programme management systems and processes; ensuring full and complete budgets are prepared and met for all activities with variance reports prepared as and when required; utilize Monitoring and Evaluation tools for measuring results and impacts during the programme lifespan.

Geopolitical/SBU/Function Overview

  • The British Council in Nigeria is implementing the European Union Conflict Management in Nigeria programme under their Trust Fund (EUTF) and the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption programme in Nigeria under their Development Fund programme (EUDF). We are in the process of agreeing with the EU to deliver the Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation under the development fund. In partnership with COFFEY, we are delivering the Policing work under their Conflict Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) and have plans to position ourselves for DFID’s forthcoming Anti-Corruption in Nigeria (ACorN) programme. To support our existing contracts as well as all future contracts, we are developing flexible structures that meet the global British Council standards to provide support to all our Full Cost Recovery (FCR) (Justice, Security and Conflict) work in Nigeria.
  • The Managing Conflict in North-East Nigeria (MCN) Programme is a €21m EUTF-funded Programme (2017-2021) and works with the overall aim of enhancing state and community level conflict management capability to prevent the escalation of conflict into violence in a number of locations in North-East Nigeria. The Programme has an annual turnover of around £5-£6m and will work in 3 states – Adamawa, Borno and Yobe as well as in Abuja. The programme is being delivered alongside a partner (International Alert) with the British Council leading the contract.
  • The Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption (RoLAC) programme in Nigeria is a €25m EUDF-funded Programme (2017-2021) and has the overall aim of enhancing good governance in Nigeria by contributing to strengthening of the rule of law, curbing corruption and reducing impunity. The programme has an annual turnover of around £5-£6m and will work in 4 states – Adamawa, Anambra, Kano and Lagos as well as in Abuja.
  • The Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation Programme is a €15m EDF-funded Programme (2018-2020) which aims to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development in Nigeria through enhancing the credibility of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and enhancing their role as independent development actors and drivers of change. The programme will be implemented at the Federal and in selected states where EU programmes concentrate.
  • The Nigerian context is generally challenging, having poor infrastructure and currently facing a volatile security situation. Three states remain under an extended State of Emergency – Adamawa, Borno and Yobe. In addition, there is still a significant reliance on the cash economy, corruption is high and the regulatory and compliance structures that exist are highly ineffective. The overall economic situation is not good with the low oil prices leading to high unemployment, increasing inflation and a shortage of foreign currency causing the value of the Naira to weaken considerably. This makes Nigeria a very challenging environment in which to deliver programmes of this size and value. The State Office is located in Yola, Adamawa State.
  • The post holder must therefore have the ability to work in an ambiguous and difficult environment in which British Council processes need to be adapted or developed to cope with unusual requirements and difficult context.
