Organization: Danish Refugee Council
Country: Viet Nam
Closing date: 29 Sep 2016
Danish Demining Group started clearance operations in Vietnam in September 2014 and is currently carrying out EOD operations in Quang Nam Province. A BAC capacity was added in December 2015, upscaling the number of teams to three in total. It is expected that the clearance capacity will be further increased in 2017. DDG Vietnam is looking for a qualified Operations Manager / Technical Advisor to oversee the deployment of these teams. The position is a combined Operations Manager / Technical Manager due to the small size of the programme and the high capacity of local staff.
The Operations Manager/Technical Advisor serves as an alternate to the Country Director (CD) when he/she is not in country. As such, the ability of the Operations Manager to take on the responsibility for the programme when required will be a key aspect of the success of the operation. Both the responsibility for representing the organisation to the Government of Vietnam and other key stakeholders (such as major donors), and the welfare and security of DDG staff in country, are two vital functions that will fall to the Operations Manager in the absence of the Country Director.
