This is a senior line management position responsible for program in East Africa. The Area Director (AD) in International Program carries out a joint program on behalf of MCC Canada and MCC U.S. This position is supervised by the Program Director for MCC Canada but also works closely with the MCC U.S. Program Director. This position works closely with the other Area Directors in International Program, primarily with the other Area Directors in Africa, to develop coherent strategies, priorities and networks.
The Area Director role may be filled with a married couple sharing the role, with a single person, or with a married candidate whose spouse is not interested in an Area Director role, in which case MCC would discuss possible roles for the spouse. MCC will consider a variety of options to support the Area Director in their roles and responsibilities, based on the qualified candidates who apply. For a single applicant, willingness to hire and delegate to highly qualified support staff would be required.
