Project Manager, Water and ICT
The OQ is seeking to recruit a Project Manager to support the Office work on strategic initiatives within two sectors: Water and ICT.
Within the Water sector, the role of the Project Manager will be focused on progressing initiatives in Gaza. This includes working with the OQ water team to provide support and consultations to the parties and relevant stakeholders to push forward discussions and processes impacting the development and operationalization of water and wastewater infrastructure projects including the development of the Gaza Central Desalination Program.
In parallel, the Project Manager will be working with the ICT and Water Team Leader to continue supporting the Palestinian Authority (PA) in developing the Palestinian telecommunication sector. This includes providing support and consultations to the parties, the mobile operators and other relevant stakeholders to push forward discussions and processes to enable the introduction of data technologies in Gaza and to upgrade existing data technologies in the West Bank.
The time and efforts of the Project Manager will be allocated 60-70% on water workstreams and 30-40% on telecom workstreams depending on work developments and necessities. The Project Management role requires flexibility and the ability to work across both workstreams as needed.
