UN Programme Officer Job in Kenya

Job Title:Programme Officer, Operations Management, Innovations Unit

World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency, fighting hunger worldwide.

In 2010, WFP Kenya began implementing new transfer modalities and making other significant changes to the way we do business and the programmes we deliver (such as using biometric ID checks during food distribution, launching a high volume beneficiary complaints and feedback mechanism, and working with the Government of Kenya to develop a social protection single registry). 

The country office plans to increase the use of innovative approaches in the coming years, and requires in-house capacity to ensure that the programmes are effectively field-tested and eventually mainstreamed into core WFP functions.

WFP Kenya is therefore seeking an experienced National Programme Officer (Operations Management) to lead this initiative.
