CARE is an international NGO with local staff and community partners in 100 countries. We create local solutions to poverty and inequality and we seek dignity for everyone every day and during times of crisis. These solutions have a broad range, from disaster response to food and nutrition to education and work for women and girls to healthy mothers and children. CARE puts women and girls at the center of everything we do because when they have equal access to resources, they lift their families and communities out of poverty. Our staff live where they work, which makes us effective at understanding the challenges they face. We’ve been doing this for 75 years, since World War II. It started with the world’s first CARE Package® of food for the post-war hungry in Europe. Our work today is as important as ever, we believe that poverty and inequality are historic injustices that we can end within a generation, for good. If you share our core beliefs: poverty is an injustice; poverty is solvable; and together, we have the power to end it, join us, and Fight with CARE.

CARE seeks a Chief of Party (CoP) to lead a USD $112 Million BHA (formerly Food for Peace) Resilience Food Security Activity (RFSA). This activity seeks to achieve resilient and sustainable food security with the high-level objectives of poverty reduction, women’s and girls’ empowerment, and adaptive and absorptive capacities improved. This program has completed five years of implementation and has been extended for a further two years starting October 1, 2020 and ending September 30, 2022. An additional third year of implementation (until September 30, 2023) is possible and under discussion.
The CoP will focus on the goal of the extension period, which is to build a sustainable service delivery model to ensure continuity of positive results beyond the life of the project. S/he will serve as a member of the country office’s leadership team and will be accountable for the overall vision and leadership of the project and delivering results.
This is a particularly complex role, with very high expectations. As a result, the successful candidate should possess significant experience managing programs, financials, and operations of USAID/FFP or other international food security projects. Experience working in Bangladesh and/or a similar context is highly desirable.

There are individuals who may use CARE’s name and trademark in emails and on websites in an attempt to solicit fees from interested job-seekers. Some examples of these fees are placement fees or immigration processing fees. CARE does not use recruiting or placement agencies that charge candidates an up-front fee of any kind. Occasionally, CARE does employ recruiting or placement agencies to help us identify candidates for specific employment within CARE. If you’re contacted by a legitimate recruiting or placement agency, there should be no charge to you. If you suspect that you have been a victim of fraud from someone purporting to be CARE, please contact us at email@example.com.
