Project Manager - ECHO DRR/Resilience Project

Location:  Dakar, Senegal

United Purpose (UP), formerly known as Concern Universal is an international NGO operating in Gambia/Senegal for over 22 years, with its headquarters located the UK. UP has a trademark approach to development that is based on the principle of partnerships with local development organisations. UP works to develop genuine and effective partnerships with local organisations where the primary point of convergence for UP and each of our partners is the communities that we each serve and support.

Through the experience of long-term partnership, UP and its partners developed genuine synergy and ensure that project delivery is both effective (by maximising impacts on target groups) and efficient (by maximising outputs with limited project resources). UP will coordinate and manage the project, as well as maintain responsibility and communication with the donor.

United Purpose has been working in Senegal since the early 2000s, with a presence through partnerships in Ziguinchor, Matam, Louga, Kaolack, Thies, and Tambacounda regions implementing food security, livelihoods and peacebuilding projects for over 14 years. UP has a national office in Dakar, a sub office in Bignona (Ziguinchor) and a financial and administrative office in Banjul, The Gambia, (operating since 1994). UP has an approved investment plan with the Government of Senegal (GoS) which includes a focus on resilience.
