 Expat Country Programmes Manager Ecuador

VVOB in Ecuador

Deadline for applications: 20/11/2020

Would you like to contribute to the improvement of the quality of education worldwide?

Hello! We’re excited to see you found your way to this job opening. That must mean you share our ambition to ensure learners around the world enjoy their fundamental human right to quality education, without exception. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.

But first things first. Allow us to introduce ourselves, drawing on the great mystery behind our name. Since our establishment in 1982, ‘VVOB’ has evolved from a complex (Dutch) acronym to a stand-alone concept meaning education for development:

  • VVOB stands for ‘commitment’ – to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
  • VVOB stands for ‘integrity’ and ‘mutual respect’ – in working with our partner organisations across 10 countries/3 continents.
  • VVOB stands for ‘quality’ and ‘innovation’ – of everything we do in our effort to improve education worldwide.

Do you still feel like you’re in the right place? Great, because we’re hiring an expat Country Programmes Manager for our team in Ecuador.  


Purpose of the function:

In Ecuador you will guide and manage the two programmes which we are currently implementing in partnership with the country’s Ministry of Education. Skilling for Sustainable Tourism and F-EFTP focus on strengthening the professional development of teachers and school leaders, school-to-work transition and workplace learning in the TVET (technical and vocational education and training) sector in Ecuador. You will also lead the development and implementation of new programmes.
