How can you make a difference?
Purpose of Activity/Assignment: The National Social Assistance Fund (NSAF) was established on March 31, 2022, through Sub-decree no 68. It serves as the single operator of the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation and of the People with Disability Fund (PWDF) involving in the implementation of social assistance, as well as the operators of the National Social Security Fund for Civil Servants (NSSFCS) and of the National Fund for Veterans (NFV). The NSAF operates under the technical guardianship of the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation (MoSVY), and the financial guardianship of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF). Sub-decree no 210 on organization of NSAF dated 17 October 2022, Inter-ministerial Prakas no. 194 dated 4 July 2023 and Inter-ministerial Prakas no. 195 dated 4 July 2023 were subsequently issued to establish and govern departments, units, and branches of NSAF.
To support the implementation of the sub-decree and Prakas, the NSAF has collaborated with UNICEF and EPRI to develop an organizational development plan. This plan aims to enhance the effectiveness, efficiency, and overall performance of the NSAF. However, due to delays in implementing Prakas 195, the draft plan primarily focuses on the central level of the NSAF.
Ensuring the quality of the NSAF’s organizational development requires a comprehensive review at the national, capital, and provincial levels. This will ensure that the plan remains dynamic and adaptable to changes in the internal and external environment. The goal is to improve organizational effectiveness, employee engagement, productivity, regularly measuring progress towards the defined goals, and tracking key performance indicators.
To achieve this, it is crucial to engage a specialized national consultant. Their expertise in organizational development, change management, and strategic planning will greatly contribute to the quality and finalization of the organizational development plan.
To qualify as an advocate for every child you will have…
- An advanced University degree (Master’s degree or equivalent, or PhD) in public policy, social policy, development, or related fields
- Fluency in English and Khmer.
- Extensive experience in organizational development, change management, and strategic planning.
- Proven track record in conducting organizational assessments, designing improvement strategies, and implementing change initiatives.
- Strong analytical, communication, and facilitation skills.
- Ability to work effectively with diverse stakeholders and teams.
- Familiarity with best practices, standards, and methodologies related to organizational development and performance improvement.
