Job Title: Project and Government Liaison Expert
Based in: Bangkok, Thailand
Reporting to: Country Manager
Our vision is to see a generation of orphaned and abandoned children transformed by the opportunity to grow up in a family.
We develop strategic partnerships with governments to help create a positive alternative to institutional care through local family-based care. We have been operating in China since 1998, helping a generation of orphaned and abandoned children to be placed into good, local families. Following the success of the Chinese project, we have been invited by many Asian governments to replicate its programme. New projects have since been launched in Thailand (2012) and Vietnam (2017).
We are looking for a Project and Government Liaison Expert to further the development and success of the National Foster Care Project in Thailand, a joint venture child welfare development project between the Department of Children and Youth (Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, Thailand) and Care for Children.
Using your experience of project development and implementation within the Thai government, you will work closely with the Department of Children and Youth (DCY), the Child Adoption Centre (CAC) and us to prioritise and implement foster care out of Child Welfare Homes, in line with national legislation and our national training programme. This is a critical new role in the National Foster Care Project to ensure all Child Welfare Homes in Thailand are placing children into families following the successful roll-out of the national foster care training programme.
We are looking for a candidate with managerial qualities, strong autonomy, and a “can-do” attitude who will embrace any task presented to them.
