Based in Prague, male or female, full time To serve the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) worldwide
The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) is a global communion of churches in the Lutheran tradition comprising 143 member churches in 79 countries all over the world. The department for World Service is the internationally recognized humanitarian and development arm of the Lutheran World Federation, assisting people in need irrespective of their ethnicity, religion or gender.
LWF World Service partners include Lutheran Churches and their related agencies, the European Commission (ECHO), the US Government (BPRM) and UNHCR among others, with whom LWF World Service is a key implementing partner. For more information about LWF World Service, please check: https://www.lutheranworld.org/content/world-service
LWF World Service implements programs globally, working with both local and international partners, helping communities achieve their full potential and advocate for their universal rights. It works in over 20 countries across the globe, implementing and monitoring more than 200 projects. These projects are hosted in so called Country Programs that have all decentralized and highly autonomous administrative structures. LWF has started a new initiative to digitalize data and adjust processes, including the move towards a new more centralized data management set up. In Uganda, we have started a pilot to develop and test the data management strategy that will be then rolled out later on. The Country Programs have their own teams in place, but need global support in the new initiative.
LWF World Service is reinforcing its Quality Assurance and Accountability (QAA) team with a new position based in Prague. The position holder will be part of an international team working in many countries – supporting the field as well as headquarters.
If you are interested to join a highly motivated team and create a meaningful impact in humanitarian and development work, using your technical knowledge and talent, this could be a great opportunity to you.
