Chemonics seeks a long-term community-government engagement team lead for USAID’s CITIES project. The team lead will be based in Chemonics’ head-office in Amman, with regular travel to other cities in Jordan, including overnight stays. USAID CITIES’ objective is to make municipal governance more effective in Jordan and support the country’s decentralization process. Working through an integrated approach, CITIES implements innovative and sustainable solutions to improve service delivery, increase sustainability of municipal and decentralized government operations, enhance citizen-government engagement, and foster community cohesion.

  • Provide required content for use in the project’s weekly, quarterly, and annual reports
  • Support municipalities in implementing their communication and outreach plans, including development of their identified communication tools, especially social media (e.g., Facebook) and municipal websites
  • Facilitate municipality-led public meetings (i.e., town hall meetings) throughout the life of the project
  • Develop relevant tools and work with the MEL team to provide municipal-community outreach actors with identified trainings, either directly or through consultants
  • Coach and mentor community engagement specialists to deliver relevant training
  • Oversee citizen engagement specialists in Amman and the hub offices
  • Coordinate with other donors and implementers who are providing similar support to municipalities, to ensure collaboration and avoid duplication of efforts

  • Proven experience improving government responsiveness to citizen priorities, including in developing countries
  • Familiarity with the use of grants under contract as a resource in promoting increased quality and effectiveness of municipal-community outreach efforts
