Oxford Policy Management (OPM) are recruiting for a full time Country Director for OPM Tanzania, based in Dar es Salaam. This is a unique opportunity for an individual enthusiastic about leading and growing a high performing, values-based organisation that supports public policy research, evaluation and reform in Tanzania.

This document has four sections: an introduction to OPM, an outline of the key responsibilities of the Country Director, a description of the key capabilities that the successful candidate requires, and a summary of the recruitment process.

OPM Tanzania

OPM’s network of international offices brings together the best global and national expertise to deliver responses that are appropriate to local circumstances. These offices enable us to generate deep insight into contextually specific policy problems and develop meaningful long-term partnerships with clients and stakeholders.

OPM opened its Tanzania office in 2013, with an emphasis on implementing high quality and complex data collection exercises. We now employ nine full-time staff, who work across multiple projects, focused on generating high quality policy-relevant research and evaluation.

Some of these projects include:
-Mixed-Methods Impact Evaluation of the Education Quality Improvement Programme (EQUIP-T), Tanzania (DFID) (http://www.opml.co.uk/projects/improving-primary-education-assessing-impact-education-quality-improvement-programme)
-Mixed-Methods data collection for the impact evaluation of mNutrition, Tanzania (DFID) (http://www.opml.co.uk/projects/evaluating-innovative-mnutrition-programme)
-The Sensors are Here! A High-Resolution Application on Understanding Individual Travel Patterns in African Cities, Tanzania (World Bank) (http://www.opml.co.uk/projects/sensors-are-here-high-resolution-application-understanding-individual-travel-patterns)


Key responsibilities of the Country Director

The key responsibilities of the Country Director are as follows:
-Lead strategy development and implementation according to targets. The Country Director will oversee and manage a collaborative process for the development and implementation of the Tanzania office strategy and alignment with the overall company strategy.
-  Lead on business development activities and represent OPM externally. As a representative of OPM, the Country Director will be expected to engage with potential clients and partners, secure new projects and explore new areas of work for the Tanzania office. This will include the management of OPM’s interests in dealing with government, development partners, coalition/ bidding partners, networks and media. The Country Director will also represent OPM in strategic meetings, conferences, forums and other public events and contributing towards consolidating and raising the profile of OPM.
-  Provide technical leadership to enable and support the successful delivery of projects. The Country Director will be responsible for managing, and supporting the management of, projects in the Tanzania office. This will involve ensuring outputs are of high quality and building systems to ensure effective project delivery.
-Support the successful development staff. The Country Director will be expected to manage staff in a way that enables successful project delivery, as well as meaningful career progression. This will involve building capacity for project management and technical inputs amongst staff.
- Drive organisational development. As OPM grows and evolves, in Tanzania and globally, in a changing market and external environment, our systems, structures and processes also need to continually adapt. The Country Director will play a key role in envisioning and supporting organisational development within Tanzania and globally, especially in terms of how networked arrangements with Oxford and other offices can be optimised.
-  Promote a modern, positive, gender-sensitive working culture. OPM is a non-hierarchical, informal organisation. All staff and their inputs and opinions are valued equally. The Country Director will play an important role in safeguarding and sustaining this culture.

Key capabilities required for the role
Below, we outline the knowledge, skills and values that we believe are required for the role. Rather than codify years and type of experience required, we will look to candidates to demonstrate to us that they possess these capabilities as well as others that they identify as predicates for success. We welcome candidates from non-traditional backgrounds.

Knowledge and experience
At its core, OPM is a public sector consulting company that relies on project work for its funding. To successfully set strategic direction and support and enable domain leads, the Country Director requires an understanding of the market that OPM operates in and the structural characteristics of what kind of organisation can be successful in that market. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate to us that they have the experience and capabilities to fulfil this requirement, which might include experience working with government, donors, international organisations, or other non-government actors that engage with the public sector.

It is also expected that the Country Director may come from a particular technical background and he/she will be expected to demonstrate how he/she has developed knowledge, experience and legitimacy in this field.

Skills

The Country Director needs to demonstrate the following skills:
-Strong leadership skills, including the demonstrated ability to inspire staff to be committed, encourage them to continuously strive for improvement, ensure they focus on achieving OPM’s mission, strategy, goals and priorities, and mobilise the resources they require to succeed.
- Strong management skills, in terms of organising people, structures, systems and processes to deliver plans efficiently and effectively, managing performance and motivating teams.
-Strategy development and capacity development skills, which will involve creative thinking and collaborative planning on how to best deliver on OPM’s mission in Tanzania.
- Senior technical consultancy skills, preferably in the area of research methods and data collection and/or monitoring and evaluation. Experience working in social policy, economic policy, and governance will also be a strong asset.
- A flexible and problem-solving working style, including the ability to adapt to changing circumstances, as well as comfort working in a fast-growing matrixed organisation.
- Interpersonal and communication skills, in order to externally represent OPM successfully to diverse stakeholders to positively advance the reputation of the organisation.
- Fluency in English is required; Kiswahili skills will be highly advantageous.


Values

OPM’s success is predicated on the maintenance of a values-based working culture, focused on maximising the impact of our work, not the bottom line. The ideal candidate will demonstrate understanding of what it takes to build and maintain a positive, inclusive, and gender sensitive working culture. They will have high levels of integrity, and act with consistency and respectfulness at all times. They will be empathetic, with strong communication and interpersonal skills.

As a mentor and leader, the ideal candidate will be relentlessly positive with a can-do attitude, constructive and supportive, yet be able to challenge and take hard decisions where required. They will be able to juggle multiple competing priorities and be able to deliver to tight deadlines. They will also be ambitious for the potential for OPM to continue to grow and achieve impact in Tanzania.

The Recruitment Process
