Save the Children is the world's largest independent children’s organization, making immediate and long-lasting improvements to children's lives in over 120 countries worldwide. Save the Children is made up of 27 member organisations across the globe. Through Unified Presence, Save the Children aims to create a stronger voice for children by unifying the operations in all countries where more than one Save the Children Member organizations operates. This will result in one organisation at the national level in each country and a unified programme delivery structure for all Save the Children Alliance Members.

Save the Children has a long history of working in partnership in Somalia and it is one of the leading INGO's working in Somalia for the rights of children. Save the Children has a unified presence in Somalia and Somaliland since January 2010 and is working in the thematic areas of education (including skills training for youth), health, protection and emergency responses. Save the children has an operation in Somaliland, Puntland and South Central Somalia. Due to constraints on security, and the need to liaise with UN agencies, other NGOs and donors the country office is based in Nairobi and senior managers and directors are expected to travel extensively to monitor and support programme work in all parts of Somalia that are accessible and where security threats are being effectively mitigated.
The position of Director of Human Resources and Admin has been newly created in January 2011 and under the management of the Country Director, this position will share in the overall responsibility for the direction and coordination of the country programme together with Directors of Programmes, Operations and Finance. The objective of the Director of Human Resources and Admin is to ensure that Save the Children in Somalia/Somaliland has the best people and systems required to deliver effective programmes that provide immediate and lasting change for children. The post holder will identify priorities and develop solutions, with input from the other members of the Senior Leadership Team, related to administration, human resources management, staff development and information technology (IT).
Integral to posting is the ability to work successfully with field teams to cultivate their capacity and motivation, thereby ensuring field based responsibility achieves its objectives successfully
