Waste to Positive Energy Project Manager – ACTED

Job Purpose:


The Project Manager, under operational guidance of the Area Coordinator, is responsible for ensuring the overall success of ACTED’s Waste to Positive Energy (WtPE) project within the time and resources allocated. The Project Manager oversees field operations and ensures effective and timely completion of activities, delivery of quality outputs and achievement of outcomes with maximum impact for beneficiaries. The Project Manager supervises the project staff in day to day management of all aspects of the WtPE project and liaises with relevant internal departments and external partners and project stakeholders.


Project Details:


As part of GIZ’s Waste to Positive Energy program running since 2015, GIZ has collaborated with various municipalities to improve solid waste management practices and promote recycling. The project aims at strengthening the resilience of civil society and local institutions, while creating income generating opportunities for vulnerable Jordanians and Syrian refugees involved in labor intensive material recovery and processing activities. The project aims to a positive impact on the environment and health of municipal residents, while reducing social tension between Jordanians and Syrian refugees that are jointly engaged in all project activities. In order to support GIZ’s WtPE program with a strong accountability mechanism throughout 2020, ACTED proposes to implement the following activities in 8 municipalities across 4 governorates in Karak, Madaba, Irbid (Al Taybeh, West Irbid, Wasatiyyeh, Ramtha, Irbid) and Balqa (Deir Alla):

1. Complaints mechanism, comprising a confidential phone line, spot checks, complaints boxes, and in-person walk-in hours, through a mobile helpdesk

2. Monthly Dialogue Forums in each municipality, ensuring participation of host community and Syrian refugees and raising awareness on recycling systems and waste disposal. The dialogue platforms serve as a common and inclusive space for exchange among different community groups and are meant to strengthen awareness of resource-efficient waste management and its importance to health and hygiene

3. Post-employment referrals, where interested beneficiaries will be referred to other GIZ projects in the target locations as well as to ILO employment centers for further employment counselling and support
