The mission of Global Communities (formerly CHF International) is to create long-lasting, positive and community-led change that improves the lives and livelihoods of vulnerable people across the globe.
Global Communities is seeking an experienced Deputy Chief of Party (DCOP) for the anticipated USAID DRC-funded Commercially Viable, Conflict- free Gold Project (CVCFG). The purpose of this project is to achieve a sustainable, conflict-free, ASM gold supply-chain originating in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) through a private-sector led approach.
The Deputy Chief of Party will provide technical assistance and support to mining cooperatives, as well as oversee all activities on the project that target upstream capacity building within the conflict-free gold supply chain. Project supported cooperatives are made up of artisanal miners, working officially designated artisanal mining zones (ZEAs). The DCOP will supervise a small staff and report to the Chief of Party, based in Silver Spring.
Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. Citizens and residents of the Democratic Republic of Congo are strongly encouraged to apply.
