SNV recruiting Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Senior Adviser
Worldwide, 02 May 2014
SNV is a not-for-profit international development organization. Founded in the Netherlands nearly 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in 38 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors work with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organizations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development. For more information, please refer to our website: www.snvworld.org
SNV is seeking qualified, senior professionals in Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) for our Senior WASH Adviser global position.
Access to safe, clean drinking water and sanitation is a basic human right. Yet, more than one third of the world’s population does not have access to proper sanitation, and many people do not have access to reliable sources of drinking water. SNV works with local partners to ensure that the people who need it most have access to safe drinking water and sanitation services. We build demand for improved water and sanitation at the local level, creating vital change from the ground up. SNV intervenes in the rural, small town and peri-urban WASH subsectors with a focus on sustainability of existing water infrastructure and behavior change. Our work in the WASH sector aims to improve the performance of all parties involved, including national and local governments, the private sector, and civil society.
SNV contributes to improved WASH service delivery, specifically:
Access to safe, sufficient and reliable drinking water supply
Access to improved sanitation
Sustained positive change in hygiene behavior
SNV is continually seeking applicants for senior WASH positions based in our country programs. Successful applicants to this general vacancy announcement will be pre-assessed for advance consideration when international positions become available. If you are an experienced WASH professional with a background in rural or peri-urban water, sanitation and hygiene and an interest in helping us meet our mission, SNV wants to hear from you.
Senior Advisers serve as technical leads on projects and programs, lead implementation and advisory efforts, and contribute to the overall sustainability of WASH programming.
