World Vision (WV) is one of the largest implementing partners to the United States Agency for International Development/Office of Food for Peace (USAID/FFP) and currently implements multi-sectoral food security programmes in approximately 22 countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America & the Caribbean. The total value of its food security portfolio has averaged over $200 million in recent years. Individual grants are typically $25 to $80 million in value over a period of 3 to 5 years, although one year emergency programmes are possible and some grants have exceeded $100 million.

WV is developing a grant application for a 5-year, multi-million Development Food Aid Programme (formerly Multi-Year Assistance Programme or “MYAP”) in Zimbabwe. The potential funding for such grants in-country is $30 million annually for five years. As such WV is soliciting applications from experienced candidates to serve as Chief of Party for this programme. The programme is likely to be focused on food security, nutrition, and agriculture and livelihoods interventions in several provinces of Zimbabwe.


The Chief of Party (COP) will work with WV’s existing national office in Zimbabwe, but will be solely responsible for overall management of this particular 5-year Development Food Aid Programme. S/he will have principal responsibility for representing the programme within Zimbabwe to the United States Government (USG) and other stakeholders. The COP will be responsible for the activities and all long-term and short-term personnel under this grant. The COP shall have a keen understanding of the unique political in-country dynamics and will work carefully and collaboratively with the various political entities. The COP should have a holistic understanding of international development, including FFP priorities and emerging trends and should embrace the shared USG/WV vision for the project and effectively manage available financial and human resources to make that vision a reality.
