Hello! We’re excited to see you found your way to this job opening. That must mean you are just like us convinced that quality education guarantees equal opportunities for everyone and is the key to a better world! Great, because we are hiring an Operations Officer for VVOB in Rwanda.
The ambition of VVOB is to ensure learners around the world enjoy their fundamental human right to quality education, without exception. In striving for this ambition, we place our values ‘commitment’, ‘integrity’, ‘respect’, ‘quality’ and ‘innovation’ central.
In Rwanda, VVOB is implementing a four-year Early Childhood Education project named ‘IT’S PLAY’ (Improving Teaching Skills on Playful Learning for Africa’s Youngest). Pre-primary school enrolments in Rwanda are increasing with a focus towards more academic forms of early childhood education (ECE). Driven by the desire of parents, teachers, and administrators to prepare children for primary school early, ECE learners are often taught academic grade 1 skills like reading, writing and mathematics. Such academic forms of early childhood education largely do not consider the developmental stages of young children, and neither lead to learning nor contribute to the pre-skills children need to fare well in Grade 1 of primary.
To bridge the gap between this desire to prepare children early and more age-appropriate forms of ECE, IT’S PLAY will strengthen Learning Through Play in early childhood education in Rwanda and harness the power of play-based learning to develop emergent numeracy skills in young children. In this context, VVOB is currently looking for an Operations Officer to join the project.
As Operations Officer you contribute to this ambition and these values by taking initiative whenever necessary to provide quality administrative and logistical support to IT’S PLAY project and other VVOB projects.
Electronic applications will be only considered. Submit a motivation letter and a current CV addressed to VVOB Country Programmes Manager at [email protected] no later than, 4th October 2022 at 5 PM (Rwanda time). More info: For more information, please contact [email protected]
