The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Zambia is seeking eligible and qualified applicants for the position of Social Protection Advisor for the Ndola USAID/Zambia Office.
The Zambia National Social Protection Policy (NSSP), approved by the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) in June 2014, provides the strategic framework within which coherent and coordinated social protection programs are to be delivered to Zambian citizens. The policy provides for a holistic and comprehensive view of a social protection system, as it envisages the combination of measures to protect the income and basic needs of the poor and disadvantaged, promote economic development and self-reliance, provide effective insurance mechanisms for workers with contributory capacity, and to remove structural barriers leading to social exclusion. It is within this context that the USAID Development Program Specialist (Social Protection Advisor) supports programming USAID activities in coordination with GRZ policies that address economic, social, and cultural rights for all Zambian citizens.
The Social Protection Advisor serves as the USAID social protection programming technical advisor in the provinces, addressing protective and transformative interventions, preventative efforts, and promote initiatives for the 60.5% of Zambia’s populations living below the poverty line and in activities aimed at serving key, vulnerable and under-represented populations.
