    Job description

    The Nigeria Infrastructure Advisory Facility (NIAF) is designed to tackle bottlenecks to the infrastructure development needed to spur non-oil growth in Nigeria. The £94 million demand-led programme is now in its second phase, covering interventions in power, capital projects, roads and rail, northern growth, climate change and effective cities.

    NIAF is helping the government of Nigeria to scale up the ambition and impact of their climate change agenda. The new Administration has already demonstrated clear political will to prioritise climate change. NIAF has a critical role to play in ensuring that this political will is turned into concrete outcomes. The climate change workstream leader is an exciting position for someone who wants to contribute to delivering a streamlined, collaborative and coordinated approach to climate change in Nigeria. 

    Responsibilities:

    • The ‘face’ of the climate change programme of NIAF;
    • Drive the implementation of climate change programme through to the end of NIAF Phase 2 (end 2016);
    • Maintain close connections with Nigerian government and appointed Minister of the Environment;
    • Manage the strategic vision with DFID;
    • Ultimate responsibility for delivery of logframe outcomes and oversight of the delivery of outputs;
    • Coordinate and maintain oversight across the three climate change components: gas flaring, mainstreaming and climate finance;  and
    • Develop interventions with an awareness of budget envelopes.

    Competencies:

    • 10-15 years of professional experience;
    • Demonstrable experience of climate change mainstreaming, climate change policy and advocacy issues in developing countries;
    • Proven leadership qualities: ability to lead and motivate accomplished senior professionals;
    • Stakeholder management: experience navigating ambiguous or conflicting expectations from powerful stakeholders for whom climate change may not be a priority;
    • Ability to communicate clearly and influence others towards a common goal;
    • Established relationships with relevant Nigerian government stakeholders is advantageous but not a prerequisite;
    • Excellent team player with good interpersonal skills, including ability to manage personnel and team management potential (including mediation and conflict resolution);
    • Strong analytical, reporting and writing abilities;
    • Strong strategic planning, results-based management and reporting capabilities;
    • Focus on impact and results for the client and responds positively to critical feedback; consensus-oriented; and,
    • Experience of policy implementation is desirable.   

    This is a 12-month fixed term contract. The candidate is expected to be full time in Abuja, Nigeria for this period. The qualified candidate must be available to start in January 2016.
