Levin Sources
Salary range: £30,000-£40,000
Salary will be based on experience
Closing date: 21 June 2021
Job Type: Paid
Location: UK based (office in Cambridgeshire), with remote working possible
The primary focus of this role is to programme-manage USAID’s Zahabu Safi (Clean Gold) Project (previously known as CVCFG). It aims to tackle economic injustice and conflict by driving better business in the gold supply chain.

USAID’s Zahabu Safi (Clean Gold) Project (previously known as Commercially Viable Conflict-Free Gold Project or CVCFG) is a five-year programme seeking to strengthen the responsibly sourced gold supply chain originating from eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The project aspires to improve access to markets for artisanal and small-scale mining cooperatives and facilitate international responsible ASM gold trade. 

The Zahabu Safi programme management will involve day to day oversight of the delivery plan, keeping track of project risk and compliance issues, overseeing the budget and being the principal point of contact for monitoring and evaluation and impact reporting.  

You will support the Director of Market Linkages, providing a sounding board for key practical and ethical decision making alongside ensuring all aspects of the project are compliant with USAID guidance, and that programme management best practice principles are applied. You will be a key point of contact for the wider Levin Sources project team, ensuring their work is delivering against the long-term project delivery plan.   This job may involve travel to Washington DC, the DRC and Europe, pending the evolution of the COVID-19 public health crisis.

The successful candidate would also be expected to act as project manager for other Levin Sources projects, making this a full time role. This will involve supporting the project leads in implementing each project in a similar way – applying high quality programme management techniques to ensure effective and impactful delivery of the project.
