FMS Technical Architect Job at Save the Children

Closing date: 14 Jul 2018

Save the Children has been operational in Kenya since the 1950s, providing support to children through developmental and humanitarian relief programmes delivered both directly and through local partners. Current programming focuses on child protection, child rights governance, education, health, HIV/AIDS, livelihoods, nutrition and WASH.

In 2012, as part of a global reorganization process, Save the Children combined the programmes of SC UK, SC Canada and SC Finland to create a single operation in Kenya. In February 2014, we completed a second transition, which saw us join forces with the British INGO, Merlin, and merge their health and nutrition programmes with our own.

Save the Children now has an operational presence in Bungoma, Dadaab Refugee Camp, Garissa, Mandera, Nairobi, Turkana and Wajir. We work through partners in many other parts of the country. We have a staff complement of around 300 staff and an operating annual budget of approximately US$16 million in 2018.

Role Purpose:

The FMS Technical Architect is responsible for the design, operation, scalability and support of the all SCI Agresso implementations across organisation. In addition the architect is responsible for any member implementations where the SC member has chosen to utilise the FMS shared service run by SCI in its global service centres.

The architect is the line manager for senior FMS staff or team leaders at each service centre location.

In the event of a major humanitarian emergency, the role holder will be expected to work outside the normal role profile and be able to vary working hours accordingly.

Contract Duration: 2 years

Location: Nairobi
