Job Opportunity at Palladium Group

Palladium is looking for a Team Leader for the DFID funded 'Support to Anti-corruption programme in Nigeria' (ACORN). The programme will support Nigerian partners to reduce corruption through stronger incentives not to abuse government resources. ACORN is a critical part of DFID Nigeria's enhanced approach to tackling corruption, which works to ensure that spaces and incentives for corruption are addressed throughout Nigeria's poverty reduction system. The programme will also complement other DFID Nigeria anti-corruption programmes aimed at reducing corruption from oil revenues and in service delivery by strengthening deterrence systems through greater emphasis on enforcement and punishment.

The Team Leader acts as the central point of leadership for the programme. The Team Leader will be responsible for representing the programme with a range of Nigerian partners, government stakeholders and external organisations and individuals.



Develop strong working relationships with the programme's contact points in the Nigerian Government, DFID and other donor programmes in the anti-corruption space, and lead on reporting to them, through both formal and informal channels.
Manage relationships with the host country government, counterpart agencies, project partners and stakeholders and business partners.
Develop strong working relationships with the leadership of other development programmes, in particular those of DFID, and explore commonalities and potential synergies between ACORN and them where possible.
Develop strong working relationships and maintain regular dialogue on programme progress and challenges with relevant Palladium staff.
