About the Role
To bridge the gap between effective communication among executives and staff, our organisation sees the need for a deputy director of development.
So, the deputy director will serve as a means of immediate contact with team members on the field while relaying all the plans and purposes of the board members. The role involves giving advice to team members and guiding NGO operations in the various sectors of task implementation. As the deputy director of development, you will conduct thorough research on ideas handed down from the executive and then pass it, in relatable terms, to the staff who will carry them out. This means you should have good interpersonal skills and a good understanding of human empathy.
